    Is it possible for your keyboard to correct more than one language without having the keyboard for the other language enabled?
    For example, is it possible for me to have my keyboard autocorrect in English and French without having to enable the French keyboard?
    Thanks for any help

    Why don't you try it yourself? Make sure that French and English are enabled in Settings → General → Dictionary.

    I tried that. Doesn't work. I want to see if there's another way.

    There is no other way to accomplish this, other than enabling the English and French keyboard. But e.g. you can start typing in English with the French keyboard and after few written words it recognizes the English language and starts autocorrecting and showing English word suggestions.

    Btw. this doesn't work if you have a third keyboard language enabled!

    It used to work in iOS 10.0!!!! But after any of the 10.x updates it stopped working!!! I cannot understand why!!, the idea was to have only one keyboard activated so I can access quickly to emoji. No it only works if I have both keyboard loaded (Spanish and English).

    Anyone with the same issue??

    Just download SwiftKey and never look back :) It's so much smarter than the Apple keyboard and the multi lingual predictions are as close to perfect you can get. You can literally type two words English, two words French, two words English, etc and it'll understand it.
