Apple Adds Support For Additional Languages Across The Lock Screen, Keypad, and Search in iOS 18

Last month, Apple announced iOS 18 at its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). Since then, the company has released two developer betas in recent weeks, including expanded support for many new languages across the lock screen, Siri, the keyboard, and search on iOS 18.

The latest version allows you to personalize the lock screen to show time in 12 different languages: Arabic, Arabic Indic, Bangla, Devanagari, Gujarati, Gurmukhi, Kannada, Malayalam, Meitei, Odia, Ol Chiki, and Telugu.

Keyboard for iOS receives several changes, including support for trilingual predictive typing throughout the system. Additional language scripts appear on the left and right sides of the suggestion area, and you may quickly switch between them. In addition, you can compose Latin text and receive suggestions for all three languages without switching.

If you have numerous threads running in various languages in the Messages app, the keyboard will remember the last language you used for one of them. The trilingual keyboard supports English, Bengali, Gujarati, Hindi, Marathi, Punjabi, Tamil, and Telugu. Additionally, the Apple has implemented support for a Korean and English multiscript keyboard in iOS 18.

iOS 18 also includes better language search, which allows users to search for multiple spellings of similar-sounding terms in that language. For example, they can look up both “चंद्र” and “चन्द्र” in Hindi. Assamese, Bangla, Devanagari, and Gujarati are among the additional languages available for search.

Other language-related enhancements for iOS 18 include the following:

  • The company now supports live voicemail transcription in Indian English.
  • The Translate app on iOS 18 now supports Hindi.
  • The live text function now supports Arabic.
  • New grammar engine for Hindi and Korean.
  • You may make contact posters with Indian languages and numerals.

Apple will release the public version of iOS 18 this fall to all users. The improvements listed above will be available in beta versions of iOS 18, which may be problematic and should not be installed on your primary device.
