I'm using German and English keyboard on my iPhone and want to insert emojis easily. The problem is when you have 2 languages and emoji, it only jumps to the next keyboard. This is very annoying.

Is there a possibility to have a language button (German/English/…) and a emoji button?

  • You can select another language without having to tap the globe button multiple times by long-tapping it – 130e13a Aug 7 '15 at 12:31
  • @lukas that's what grgarside already said... – inxs Aug 7 '15 at 13:58
  • FWIW, iOS 10 coming next week supports multi-language keyboards. That means you can keep a single keyboard for multiple languages and it will give you auto-correct etc. for all of them. It works surprisingly well. You would then have the emoji keyboard right next to to the main one. For how to set it up: cultofmac.com/441836/… – Arthur Sep 9 '16 at 10:01
  • @ArthurHammer I don't think it will help when you must switch keyboards because of different scripts, like Latin, Greek, Russian, Japanese... – Tom Gewecke Sep 10 '16 at 19:49

No, this is not possible.

You can quickly switch to a specific keyboard by holding down on the keyboard language button and sliding your finger to the specific keyboard.

Also, the keyboard order is always fixed, so you know to double-tap the keyboard language button to go to a specific keyboard from another specific keyboard.

  • Thanks for your answer. But is there an alternative keyboard that supports this feature? – inxs Aug 7 '15 at 10:04

Yes it is possible. Just add emoji as a keyboard!

  • Perhaps you could post a picture of your screen showing both the globe and emoji keys present? – Tom Gewecke Sep 10 '16 at 19:44
  • I think you must not have understood the question at all. Best to delete your answer to avoid that impression. – Tom Gewecke Sep 10 '16 at 20:01
