How to Set Your Own Default Browser and Email App in iOS 14


In iOS 14, Apple finally added the ability to choose your default browser and email client. That means when you click a link in an app, it won’t lead you to Safari when you’d rather go to Chrome—or Apple Mail when you’d rather send a message from Outlook.
