AZERTY Keyboard iPhone

I’m not here to tell you how to change or add keyboards to your iPhone or iPad, because you probably already know how to do that. But did you know you can change the layout of the keys for any stock keyboard you use? So if you use the standard QWERTY English keyboard but want to switch to a AZERTY layout instead, then I’ve got you covered. In this post, I will should you how to change the key layout of your keyboard on your iOS device.

In the Settings app, navigate to General > Keyboard > Keyboards, then tap on the keyboard for which you want to change the layout. You will then be presented with different layout available for that keyboard (note that not all keyboards can have a different layout).
