After changing the UI Language or Region of an iOS device please allow some time for the device to administer the change.  The change can take a few minutes and during the change you may see a black screen saying 'Setting Language...'

While the language change is processing, do not perform a power cycle on the device as this will disconnect the device from the system.

If the language change has been completed and the device is displaying a zoomed or distorted view, use the "Recover" widget.


English (Canada) not supported due to Apple limitations.

Alternate Solutions:

Option #1: Using Dedicated Devices for Specific Languages

This option guarantees that if you need to test on specific languages, that you already have devices set in the cloud accordingly. This is the easiest way to test on different languages.

Option #2: Using the Language and Locale Option for Automation

It is possible to use language and locale testing instead of directly changing the device language. Please see this article about Language and Locale usage.
