IOS 14 arrived full of new features and improvements in privacy, making the joy of those who own an iPhone. However, it is interesting to realize that, with the new version of the operating system, Apple is also loosening up a little and causing the software to lose that reputation of being more “plastered” than the competition – and that includes allowing the standard applications.
As celebrated by Google itself (fast, right?) On social networks, iOS 14 allows, for example, that you configure Gmail as your phone’s default email client. This means that the app will become the main one for sending and receiving emails, being opened automatically even when you click on those “mailto:” buttons (which direct you to your favorite email client with the pre-filled recipient).

The setup process is very simple. Just enter the operating system settings, search for Gmail and scroll the screen until you find the option “Default Email App” (or “Default Email App, in Portuguese). Then, change the “Mail”, native OS client, to “Gmail”. Ready!
It’s worth noting that, recently, Google also updated Chrome for iOS to allow the browser to become the default on iOS 14. Everything indicates that Apple is really giving up some of its products in order to cheer up its user base, making it even more faithful by having the freedom to choose which software to use. A strategy that, we agree, makes a lot more sense.
New version of the operating system gives users more freedom, allowing them to change applications that are used by default for certain tasks or to open certain links; setup process is simple and quick
