Activate multiple keyboards

 You can have more than one keyboard layout active on your device at any time. So, for example, an international executive who did business in the U.K. and Russia could keep an English and Russian (Cyrillic) keyboard active and switch between them when composing notes and e-mail messages.

To activate different keyboards:

  1. Go to Settings >General >Keyboards >International Keyboards and turn on the keyboards you want.

To switch between keyboards in any app that accepts text input:

  1. Tap on the world globe icon to the left of the space bar to toggle through the keyboards you have activated.
