At its annual Worldwide Developers Conference on Monday, Apple revealed that it'll let iPad users choose their default email and browser app with iPadOS 14. We got a glimpse of the change on a slide during its keynote.

The change applies to iOS 14 as well, Apple confirmed in response to a request for comment.

The conference  was held virtually for the first time due to the coronavirus pandemic.
