The iPhone’s Mail app is an incredibly useful feature, which comes pre-installed in the device. The Mail app allows you to connect all of your email addresses, no matter the domain, to a single app.

For those who keep their work email account separate from their personal one, it’s important to set your default email correctly, because it will be the account that sends all your email by default.

If you do have multiple email accounts logged into your iPhone’s Mail app, the app will automatically choose the one you enter first as the default.

If you’d like to change your default account to a different email, though, you can easily do so. Here’s how you can change your default email on your iPhone.
