How to Change Default Browser on iPhone and iPad
iOS 14 is loaded with many new features and changes. Users can now enable third-party browsers and email clients to be used as default apps, meaning users who don’t get on with Safari or Apple’s native Mail app can choose an alternative and it will be opened automatically whenever the system requires it.
The latest version of Google Chrome now supports this ability, so anyone on iOS 14 can set Google’s app as their default browser and it will be used to automatically open web page links that are tapped in other apps.
Note that these steps will only work if you have iOS 14 or iPadOS 14 installed.
- Download the latest version of Google Chrome.
- Launch the Settings app.
- Scroll down and select Chrome.
- Tap Default Browser App.
- Tap Chrome.
After you’ve completed these steps, any app that tries to open a web page will launch Chrome instead of Safari.
