Change Mail and Browser Defaults
We’ve been hearing reports since last year that this one has been coming, and it’s arguably very long overdue, but it looks like iOS 14 will finally allow you to choose your own Mail and Browser apps to act as defaults.
While the iOS Share Sheet has generally meant that the default mail app isn’t nearly as crucial, “mailto” links would still go to the built-in iOS Mail app. However, the ability to change the default browser app will be huge for users who would prefer to use alternatives like Chrome or Firefox rather than Safari. Since those browsers are more popular on the desktop, this should result in a much more seamless experience for iPhone and iPad users.
