Bye Safari! – Here’s how you can easily change default browser on iPhone – You can make any browsers of your choice as your default browser

Like to use Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge or some other browsers? You can now easily change the default browser on your iPhone!

In the past, there’s no way for iPhone users to change the default browser so although they can install other 3rd party browsers, but when it comes to open any links from other apps, the links always opened in Safari. However, things have changed now. With the introduction of iOS 15 and iPadOS 15, Apple has made it possible now to change your iPhone default browser. Check out the steps below.

  • This article shares the simple steps how you can change your default browser on your iPhone.
  • Although the article is written for iOS 15 and iPhone, but the same fixes work as well for iPad, iPod Touch and iPadOS 15.

Step 3) Inside the browser setting, tap on “Default Browser App”. Then choose your preferred default browser app (E.g. If your preferred default browser is Google Chrome, then tap on Chrome).

With the steps above, now your iPhone default browser is set to your browser of choice (E.g. Google Chrome). Try opening link from other apps, this time it will be opened on your browser of choice.

Bring it all together

With the simple and easy steps shared above, now you can change your iPhone default browser – Safari – to any other browsers that you preferred and any links will always open on your preferred browser. Apple should have enabled this option since the beginning!
