    Now you can scroll down through the list of languages.
    You may notice that Chinese is not listed under "C". That's because Chinese people don't speak English natively. They speak Chinese and Chinese is a character based language. Scroll down until you find Chinese characters. Here you see we have two types of Chinese characters, traditional, and standard. Simply tap on the first one, and it will switch our system language to Chinese.
