How to Change the Language in the App Store

The App Store uses the language you set on your mobile device during the setup process. If you accidentally changed the language on your device, you can change it back to your preferred language through the Settings app. However, if you need to change the country or region associated with your Apple ID, then you need to access your account settings. When you move to another country, changing the country or region allows you to view the App Store for that country. After you change the country, you won't have access to the purchases made from the previous country, so you should consider creating a new Apple ID instead.
