    i'm from germany and in iOS 9 autocorrect literally destroyed my text. Now with iOS 10 it's so more convenient as I can write in English with the help of autocorrect despite having activated the german keyboard. Somit isses sogar möglich im Schreiben plötzlich die Sprache zu wechseln.

    Amazing.

    Actually my experience is very bad. Who wants to change language in the same message. Nobody. It would be far superior if iOS 10 remembered who I am writing to in what language. So I don't have to change keyboards all the time.

    Trying to predict words in all the languages that I need to use is impossible. Especially if there are only 3 windows to present choices.

    Very wrong. English is such a dominant language that it is often necessary to use English words in other languages. Automatic language recognition makes this a lot more convenient. Bilingual or multilingual people or language learners tend to mix languages more freely if they are unable to express themselves.

    Only Messages does that until now. I’ve requested this since I had my 3G. :( I don’t get it. OS X has had reliable automatic language recognition for many, many years.

    You DON'T have to change the keyboard at all.

    Replying to an english thread with german autocorrect activated was always one of the Wurst Experiment on mobile.

    oh, I see. But autocorrect doesn't work either. So it's logical. Maybe later. :(

    This is one of those little features I'm really looking forward to. I'm forever switching between English and French in the same message. This will be great!

    I so wanted this, but alas, no support for Swedish. Back to swiftkey I go.

    I'm the same ! I've been using Swiftkey which works fine for French and English but will be deleting it if iOS 10 keyboard understands my franglais ;-)
