How to get the current iPhone Language Code
We are currently developing an iPhone App which requires localization support and I ran into an issue while trying to get currently set language.
Cocoa Touch has a class called NSLocale which let’s you query the language by writing the following code:
At least one would expect so, but it actually gives you the language of the region format you have configured in your settings.
If you have your iPhone language set to ‘English’, but your region format is set to ‘Germany’, the call will return ‘de’ instead of ‘en’.
What you really should call is:
Because this gives you not the language associated with the region, but the language the device is actually configured for.
