IOS 14 allows third-party web browsers and email clients to be the default, so if you don’t really like Safari and Apple Mail, you now have another option.
With the latest update to Google Chrome, now available in the App Store, you can change your default browser from Safari to Google Chrome on iPhone and iPad. Here’s how to do it.
With iOS 14, Apple has added system support for third-party web browsers and email applications. In the future, they may open more and more departments.
The default web browser will be used when tapping a link in an application. You may have an alternative browser like Google Chrome until iOS 14, but the link functions will always be open in Safari. Here’s how to change it to iPhone and iPad in iOS 14.
How to set Google Chrome as your default browser on iPhone
- Download the latest version of Google Chrome from the App Store.
- Open the Settings app and the Settings page for Google Chrome.
- Tap ‘Default Browser App’.
- Tap on Chrome.
With this set, applications that trigger any standard open URL activity will now manage to open Google Chrome instead of Safari.
If you ever change your mind, you can go back to Settings and the default browser app can go back to Safari. If you want to use a third-party browser other than Chrome, you’ll need to wait for the developer to update the application. The same is true for changing email applications: so far we have not seen any featured email application publish this feature.
Obviously, all of these require iOS 14 or iPadS14 to be installed. At the moment, we have Apple in iOS 14 developer beta 8
