How to Get an iPhone off of Chinese Settings

Whether you purchased your iPhone secondhand or it experienced a tangle with a toddler, if your settings and preferences are set to Chinese you'll have a hard time understanding your iPhone unless you read Chinese. Changing your language and settings from Chinese to English is done through the settings tab. If set to Chinese, the choices may be difficult to read, so rely on the icon artwork to guide you through to change your settings.
