Using an Apple device has been a tradition for some users. However, it also means that they are somehow stuck to the default Apple apps, which may not always be the best option for them. Now, Google is gradually integrating its software to Apple ecosystem, so users will have an added option.

Last week, Apple released the new iOS 14. Changes include the entry of Google apps as default applications on an iPhone device. While Apple allows third-party applications to be set as default on their devices, Google has yet to accept the offer.

Recently, Google also released its new update. The version 6.0.200825 is allowing its Gmail application for iOS 14 devices. With updates from both tech-giant companies, iPhone or iPad users will have a seamless integration of their Gmail as the default email app for their iOS 14 devices.

If you want to explore other options in organizing your email accounts aside from Apple’s built-in apps, you can choose to set Gmail as your primary email application.

Before you start using Gmail as your default mail app on iPhone, you will need to update your iPhone device to the latest iOS 14 version. You also need to update your Gmail to the new version 6.0.200825.

  1. Navigate to the Settings of your iPad or iPhone device.
  2. Scroll down and look for Gmail.
  3. Click to open the Gmail menu.
  4. Select Default Mail App.
  5. You can choose the app that you want to set as default. There are other apps available also, so you have more options to choose from.

Change Default Browser App on iPhone

Aside from the default email app, Apple is also allowing iPhone and iPad users to change their default browser in iOS14 and iPadOS14. Instead of using Safari as default when you want to open a link, you can choose other web browsers. Users will now have Google Chrome, Firefox, Opera and other browsers as an option.

Unfortunately, some users reported that there is a bug in the new update. Even if they changed their default email and browser to third-party apps, Apple is reverting to the default Safari and Mail when they restart their devices. Apple will still have to address the current issue and most certainly release fixes in the coming days.

Do you want to set Gmail as your default email app on your iOS device, or will you stay with Apple Mail? We would love to know your thoughts, so drop us a comment below.
