Apple designed iOS 14 to let you change your default app for your mail and browser.
They announced this new capability at their iOS 14 worldwide launch on Wednesday.
You can now change your mail app to Outlook or your browser to Google Chrome or other mail and browser apps.
However, users have found a bug…
Whenever you power down your iPhone, the change in apps doesn’t remain. Your iPhone goes back to Apple’s Safari and Mail app.
Also, if you change your email app, but keep Safari as your default web browser, emails opened in Safari will continue to open in Apple’s Mail app.
You shouldn’t let this minor bug keep you from updating to iOS 14. Just be aware that you may want to wait before using your new ability to change your default Mail and Web app.
Apple has yet to address the iOS 14 bug. They will almost certainly fix this minor inconvenience in a later iOS 14 update.
