Welcome to this tutorial on how to change the default browser on your iPhone. If you’re tired of Safari and want to explore other browsers like Chrome or Firefox, you’re in the right place! In this article, we will guide you through the step-by-step process of changing your default browser.
Step 1: Download your preferred browser
The first thing you need to do is download the browser you want to set as your default. You can find these browsers on the App Store. Let’s say you want to use Chrome as your default browser.
- Open the App Store on your iPhone.
- Search for “Chrome” in the search bar.
- Tap on the “Get” button next to Chrome app.
- Wait for the installation process to complete.
Step 2: Open Settings
Once Chrome (or any other browser) is installed, go ahead and open the Settings app on your iPhone. You can find it on your home screen or by swiping down and using the search feature.
Step 3: Scroll down and tap on “Chrome”
In Settings, scroll down until you find a list of installed apps. Look for “Chrome” (or the name of your preferred browser) and tap on it. This will open a new screen with specific settings for that app.
Step 4: Tap on “Default Browser App”
In the Chrome settings screen, look for an option called “Default Browser App.” Tap on it, and a list of available browsers installed on your device will appear.
Step 5: Select your preferred browser
In the list of available browsers, you should see Chrome and any other browsers you have installed. Tap on the browser you want to set as your default.
Step 6: Confirmation
Once you’ve selected your preferred browser, go back to the Settings app’s main screen. You should see a message confirming that your default browser has been changed.
That’s it! You have successfully changed your default browser on your iPhone. From now on, any links you open will automatically open in your preferred browser.
If you ever want to change your default browser again, simply follow these steps and select a different browser.
Remember, changing the default browser only affects the apps that support this feature. Some apps may still use Safari as their default browser, regardless of your settings.
