The iPhone has been out for over a decade, and for most of that time, Apple has only allowed one browser to be the default. Safari, the one they built; till iOS 14 and higher, has been the only supported browser.
This means that Google Chrome fans can finally set the app as their default, and use it for all their browsing.
As long as your device is running the latest version of the operating system, this setting should be available to you.
You can change the default browser in the Settings app. First, though, make sure you have downloaded the latest version of Chrome from the App Store and opened it at least once.
This is for iPhone and iPad
First, launch your Settings app (the gear icon). Refer to below image:
Next, scroll way down to the Chrome section and tap on it. See below image:
Now, tap the Default Browser App option. See following image:
You will see a list of installed browsers. Tap the Chrome app to place a checkmark by it. Refer to below image:
To ensure your setting, tap the Back text button. You may now exit Settings.
That’s all you need to do! Chrome is now your default browser on your iPhone and/or iPad.
You may still see Safari if an app uses this browser by default. If this happens, you can simply tap the associated browser icon to reopen the page in Chrome.
If you want to revert back to Safari or choose another browser, navigate back to the Default Browser App section in the Chrome or Safari settings.
