Set default browser/mail app on iPhone

Mostly, Apple does not allow setting the Third-party browsing app as a default one. Unexpectedly, Apple announces that iPhone and iPad users can set Third-party browsers as default browsers now. If you are using any Third Party browser instead of Safari, this news will make you happy. You can also set Third-Party Mail apps like Gmail and Outlook as default ones. So here I will show you how to set the third-party browser as your default browser. Let’s see how to do that.

First, you have to update your iPhone or iPad to the latest iOS version. To do that,

Step 1: Update your iPhone/iPad to the latest iOS version.

  • Launch the Settings app on your iPhone/iPad.
  • Then select the General option.
  • Now tap on Software Update and check if you have any Software Updates available.
  • If it is yes. Tap on Download and Install the option to download the update immediately.

Step 2: Set the Third-Party browsing app/Mail app as a default app.

Here I’m going to show how to set the Third-party browsing apps as a default with the help of Chrome. But remember this method is applicable for all Third-Party browsing apps and email apps.

  • First, you have to update your browser app/mail apps before starting this process.
  • Next, launch the Settings app on your iPhone.
  • Scroll down the screen and select Chrome (or) third-party mail app.
  • Then tap on Default Browsing App (or) Default Mail App.
  • And select Chrome to set it as your default browser app on your iPhone. That’s it.

Note: The important thing is, only chrome has been updated and allowed to set it as the default browser. But other apps haven’t updated their browser to use as a default on the iPhone. So we have to wait for some time until the developer updates their browsing app.
