Apple shares resources for default third-party web browser and email apps

Set default third-party apps in iOS 14.



Apple will now allow users to set a third-party app as their default web browser or email app in iOS 14. Previously, users had no other option but to use Apple’s Mail and Safari natively.

Apple says developers are required to meet certain guidelines in order to request a managed entitlement which allows the app to work in substitute of Apple’s own apps.

The third-party apps should have at least basic features working properly in their domain. A web browser app, for instance, must provide a text field for entering a URL and shouldn’t navigate to an unexpected location on its own.

Apple’s developer website has published resources for getting started, as spotted by MacStoriesFederico Vittici. The functionality will be available in iOS 14 launching this fall.
