Do I Need an iPhone 14 to Use the New Dictionaries on iOS 16?
Some new iOS 16 settings, such as satellite location sharing, will only be available to iPhone 14 users. Luckily, you can use the newly-introduced dictionary languages on iOS 16 without needing to upgrade your device if you don’t want to.
All of the new Dictionary languages are downloadable on every iPhone device that supports iOS 16. On top of that, you can still access all of the older languages that were already available – including Dutch, Korean, Swedish, and Portuguese.
How to Access Dictionaries on iOS 16
When you set your iPhone to a new language, your device will automatically add the corresponding Dictionary language. But if you want to specifically add a new language without changing the main one on your phone, you can follow the steps below.
- In the Settings app, click on General.
- Scroll down to the Dictionary tab and tap on it to go to the next window.
- Look for the Dictionary language you want to add to your iPhone. Once you’ve clicked on it, you’ll notice that it begins downloading straight away.
If you later want to remove a Dictionary language, all you need to do is go back into the Settings app and tap on it so that the tick goes away.
