In iOS 14 and iPadOS 14, it is now possible to set third-party apps as the default web browser and email app, and you can already replace Chrome or Microsoft's Edge with Safari.

Following that, you can finally set up one of the most popular third-party mail apps, Gmail, as the default email app on your iOS device.

This change was made in the latest version of Gmail (as of September 22) 6.0.200825. You can set it up by tapping Gmail from the app list in the Settings app and selecting Gmail under Default Mail App. By the way, MS Outlook is already supported ahead of Google.

Prior to iOS 13, iPhones and iPads were locked to the "Safari is the default web browser and Mail is the default mail app" setting, and you couldn't change to other apps like you could on Android, PC or Mac. So people who use Chrome or Gmail on other devices were forced to do things differently on iOS and iPad OS, but now they will finally be able to integrate their web browsing and email environments.

However, at the time of writing, Apple has officially acknowledged that there is a bug that causes the default apps to reset and revert back to Safari and Mail every time you reboot your iPhone or iPad. That means you'll have to reconfigure it in case of unexpected shutdown or a dead battery.

Support for iOS 14 in the Google apps is steadily progressing, and we'd like to see picture-in-picture support for the YouTube app as well.
