By default, an iPhone’s default language is set to the language of the country where it was bought. Changing the default language on iPhone is easy if you are familiar with the language. A problem may arise if you bought an iPhone in a foreign country and the language of that country is incomprehensible to you. If you do not know Chinese and your iPhone is set to that language, changing the language back to English can be a challenge. This tutorial can help you.
