    Alternatively, we can use a finger or our thumb and press down on the Home button.
    This will activate the Touch ID sensor and unlock the phone. From here we are looking to create a message or a note, or any other type of text option on the Phone.

  7. 7
    Let's start by opening a Message by tapping the Messages icon one time.
    This icon is green, with a white text bubble inside of it. The word "Messages" will be written underneath of this icon in white.

    In this message, we are going to type for example "Hi" then we can tap return to skip a line.
    The return button is located on the right side of the keyboard, it is gray with the word "return" inside of it.

    If we would like to switch languages, generally speaking, we can press the globe icon located on the keyboard.
    Underneath of the letter "Z".

    However, we may press and hold the globe icon which will allow us to move our finger up and cycle through the language options.

  11. 11
    Once we are on top of the language we would like to select, we can lift our finger off of the screen and that language will be selected.
    For this example, we will select the Russian keyboard.

  12. 12
    We can then type whatever we would like, and then press the return button once again.

  13. 13
    If we would like to switch back to English, we can simply press on the globe icon another time, moving up to the "English (US)" option, and then releasing our finger.
    To better illustrate why this is important, if we wanted to be in English and I wrote "Hi", and then we tapped the globe icon again and switch languages, it is going to switch to Russian, then switch to Emoji, then to Georgian, then finally back to English. Let's say we wanted to write something in English and then in Russian, and then quickly switch back to English, we are unable to do that by simply tapping on the globe icon. The easiest way to accomplish this is by pressing and holding it so that we can quickly and easily select the keyboard language that we want.

    Now we will tap on the Notes icon to show that the same thing works in Notes.
    This icon is represented by a square featuring a yellow panel at the top, with the bottom section white with black stripes. The word "Notes" will be underneath of it, written in white.

    Once more we will press and hold the globe icon, we will note that with certain languages like "English (US)" we can easily turn on or off our Predictive text.
    This is an extra function, and not something that we are particularly worried about in this tutorial.
