You can now make Microsoft Outlook and Edge your default email and web browser on iOS

Apple is releasing iOS 14 and iPadS14 today, along with a number of new features, including the ability to set third-party applications as the default web browser and email client. And now, Microsoft Edge and Outlook apps have just been updated with this new option for iOS 14 users.

IOS 14 allows users to finally replace Safari and Mail with others from the App Store. When you have a compatible web browser installed on your iPhone or iPad, iOS shows a new “Default Browser App” option in the app settings.

From there you can set this app as your default browser instead of Safari. The process is the same for third party email clients. Microsoft has now added the option to set Edge and Outlook applications as defaults in iOS 14 with today’s update.

All you have to do is install the latest version of Microsoft Edge and Outlook on your iPhone or iPad running iOS 14 and you will find the default application options in the settings of each application.

Both Microsoft Edge and Outlook are available for free in the App Store. As Apple is now approving app updates with iOS 14 features, we would expect more apps to provide the default app option.
