Email apps and services like Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, iCloud, etc. let you add a signature that is mentioned automatically at the end of every email you send. In Apple Mail app on iPhone and iPad, including those running iOS 13, Sent from my iPhone is the default email signature. If you are looking to delete it and customize it to something else like your name, contact number, address, you can easily do so. Let us take a look.
How to Remove ‘Sent from My iPhone’ Email Signature
1. Open Settings app on your iPhone.
2. Tap on Mail.
3. Scroll to the end and tap on Signature.
Note: If you have more than one account set up in the Mail app, you can choose All Accounts or Per Account.
4. Here delete the entire Sent from my iPhone text. You may leave it blank or add something else in place of it. Like your name or contact number.
5. Tap on <Mail from top left.
The default iPhone Mail app signature has been successfully deleted (or replaced.)
The same method applies for iPad as well, if you want to change or remove Sent from my iPad signature.
That’s all, mate!
There are several reasons why you are interested in erasing the default email signature. It may be that you do not like to associate yourself with Apple branding, or maybe your employer prohibits you from having this and other similar signatures. Reasons may be a personal choice or professional guideline.
But there is a practical side to it as well. ‘Sent from my iPhone’ signifies that you have replied to an email or sent an email via a smartphone (iPhone in this case.) So, if there are few typing or punctuation errors, or if you have written your email with abbreviations (like TTYL for talk to you later), the receiver understands that you have replied quickly from a phone. Similarly, if you have answered in brief to even a lengthy email, it is socially acceptable, as the receiver knows you have used a small iPhone keypad and not a full-size computer keyboard. Interesting! Isn’t it?
