Here’s an iPhone trick to bypass Apple’s Mail and Safari apps – CNET Leer en español

The iPhone has a lot to offer. You can install a multitude of apps, take great photos and videos, and enjoy its many features on a daily basis. But, for a long time, Apple has imposed its default messaging and web browsing applications, regardless of your preferences.

Thankfully, Apple ended up loosening its grip on the iPhone and iPad by adding the ability to place widgets on the iPhone’s home screen, create custom app icons, and, albeit somewhat limited, change the default apps for messaging and web browsing.

This means you can use Gmail or Google Chrome or another app of your choice., instead of Safari and Apple Mail.

The process to change your default messaging and browsing app is very simple, but somewhat hidden. Apple doesn’t make it as easy as it does on Android, where there’s a dedicated section for setting default apps in Settings. We’ll show you where it is.

Set your default email or browser

To use another app as a replacement for the iPhone’s default email or web browser, its developer must update it to iOS 14 to support the new feature. Check the App Store for updates before trying to change your default app.

Open the Settings from your iPhone or iPad, then scroll down to find the list of all installed apps. Locate the messaging or web browsing app you want to use as default and tap on it. If you’ve updated to iOS 14, you should see Default Browser or Default Mail; tap on it and select the app of your choice.

So far, Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Outlook, and Hey have all been updated to include this option.
