#iOS 14 might allow users to change the default mail and browser app

Apple is reportedly mulling offering iPhone and iPad users the option to set third-party mail and browsers app as default on their device. The company has never allowed users to replace any system app with a third-party app by setting it as a system-wide default.
If Apple goes ahead with the plan, it will allow iPhone and iPad users to replace the stock Mail app and Safari with third-party apps of their choice. These two are among the most popular and used system apps. While plenty of quality third-party alternatives are available in the App Store, developers of these apps don’t get a fair playing field as their apps cannot be set as default across the system.
