iPhone’s latest change helps users set Gmail as default email client.

Tech gaint Google has updated its latest version Gmail, adding the option for it to become the default email option on iPhone. According to Mashable, the new option is in response to a change made by Apple to the new iOS 14 which dropped last week.

In June apple announced that users would be able to change their default web option from Apple’s safari browser and switch the mail email service to non-Apple services. Up until now, if the users opened a link, it would open in safari or if one clicked on a persons email to send them a message, a new email would open in mail.

If a Gmail user wanted to send a person an email, the user would have to specifically open Gmail, compose a new message, or either copy and paste the whole email. However, if one has made his/her default email client Gmail and if he/she wants to go to a contact in the phone, they need to click on that person’s email, which will lead to a new email addressed to that address will open in Gmail.

As Mashable reported, chrome was able to take advantage of apple’s new flexibility with an update last week, while the update came to Gmail on Monday.
