Change the default browser on iPhone

Apple doesn’t give an option to change the default apps unless you install another third-party app. So if you want to change the default browser, install the browser you want to use. Here we take Chrome for example.

Using iPhone Settings

As mentioned, there are no settings to change the default browser in the new iOS 15. However, if you install another browser, you can set it as the default. Here’s how-

1. Open the Settings app on your iPhone.

2. Scroll down to the third-party browser app you installed. For example – Chrome.

3. Now tap on it and on the next page tap on “Default browser app”.

4. Select Chrome on the next page.

That is it. Now when you tap a link in an app, your page will open in Chrome.

Using Chrome or other browsers

You can also set Chrome or any other browser as the default on iPhone using the browser settings. Here’s how:

1. Open Google Chrome on your iPhone.

2. Now click on three dots at the bottom right and select Settings in the menu.

3. Select Default browser and follow the same steps as mentioned above.

You can also go to Settings here and then select Chrome as the default browser. Here’s how to set Chrome as your default browser on your iPhone.
