With iOS 14, Apple finally lets you choose which browser you want to use as your default, letting you get away from Safari if you use a third-party option like Chrome or Edge. . Apple is also offering iPhone users the ability to change their default email app to the updated OS.
To be a candidate for the default browser, developers must update their app. All browsers still need to use WebKit as their built-in browsing engine, which means that the main differences between them will be reduced in their user interfaces and how they sync with other platforms, rather than how they How to render web pages fundamentally. There is currently only a limited selection of browsers that can be set as the default on the iPhone.
Here is a list of alternative default browsers that we can confirm:
Notably absent from this list are the iOS version of Bahadur (although the company has confirmed that the latest version of its browser is currently undergoing Apple’s review process) and Opera Touch (the iOS version of Opera). We’ve also downloaded several other iOS browsers, which are often recommended in the “Best iOS Browser” lists, including Dolphin, Ghostery, UC Browser, and Aloha, and found that they didn’t appear in the default browser selection menu.
As of this writing, a bug appears in iOS 14 that resets your default browser to Safari whenever your device reboots. Our request for comment on the bug has yet to be answered, but we hope it will be fixed with an upcoming patch for iOS.
To change your default browser, go to the Settings app, then scroll to the browser you want to make your default. If it is defaultable then click it and you will see the “Default Browser App” option.
