  • You can check the list of preferred language under Preferred Language Order.
  • If you want to add another language to the list, tap on the Add Language option.
  • Then from the list of languages you can select the one you want to add to the list. Note that in addition to the 45 languages (including dialects) supported by the iPhone, you can also select one from the Other Languages list or just search for one using the box at the top.

Once you’ve set preferred language order, apps and websites that you access through the device will use the first language in the list that it supports. Your device’s preferred language order doesn’t hamper the iPhone language that you set above.
