Such are available in iOS:
1.  Go to 'Settings > General > Keyboard > International > "Add New Keyboard"'; you have a selection 30+ language-based keyboard, including 8 Chinese, and 'Emoji'.
2.  Having added one or more keyboards, you will find a 'Globe' key to the spacebar left which will switch between your chosen keyboards. The keyboard's name appears briefly on the spacebar after a change.
3.  In addition to multi-keyboards-in-one, iOS has the multi-keys-in-one: tap and hold a key to see which alternate accented versions are available.
4.  You can, when switching to the numeric/symbol keyboard, hold the 'number key', wait for the keyboard to change, then slide over to the desired key and release. That key will be entered, and the keyboard changes back to your original.
5.  Further examples:
