How to Change Default Email Address of Mail App on iPhone/iPad

iPhone and iPad users can change default email address on devices; unlike earlier versions of iOS, the latest one needs a few more taps to change the email ID.

Your default email address is your first email you have set up on your iPhone or iPad. It could be your personal or professional email that you access every day. However, you can use multiple email IDs on your iOS device.

Once you have added more than one email to your iPhone or iPad, you can choose which one to set as default email address. Please note that in earlier iOS versions, it was enough to select default email id from the Settings; now, you have to follow a few more steps.
