    I'm afraid you cannot. Afrikaans is not currently offered as an option, as you have no doubt discovered. There is no way of adding Afrikaans via any third party.

    Since no special keyboard is needed to input Afrikaans, I assume you are really asking for Afrikaans spell check/auto complete?  Make sure you let Apple know via

    You will have to.  When Afrikaans spellcheck is provided, it will be attached to an "Afrikaans" keyboard only.  That is how iOS works.

    PS  I should have mentioned that you don't really need to "turn off" keyboards, you just use the "globe" key to quickly switch among the ones you need for a particular text.

    I'm throwing my support behind this as well. Dutch is already there as a basis, it just needs some modifications.

     

    Come on Apple, support your userbase, give us Afrikaans

     

    The keyboard would be a good start, but of course I mean an entire Afrikaans localization.
