Google released the official update to Gmail, enabling it to be fixed as the default email app for iOS 14 devices.
iOS 14: Which was released by Apple last week, attached the possibility for users to set third-party email applications as the default for iPhone and iPad devices running the newest version of Apple’s operating system. But it yet happened to developers to add support for the feature, which the latest Gmail update does.
Once you’ve installed the latest update, head to the Settings app on iOS, select the “Gmail” menu, and find the newly added “Default Mail App” menu.
Google also states that the Gmail app should prompt users with guidance once they’ve updated.
It’s essential to note that iOS seems to have a bug that automatically switches third-party browser and email apps back to Apple’s default Mail and Safari after a restart; Apple has still to comment on the matter or announce when (or if) it’ll be approached.
Google has wholly covered Apple’s new options for default apps, with the company already continuing support for Chrome to be installed as the default browser on iOS 14 ahead of the final release of Apple’s software.
