  • You can make Gboard your default virtual keyboard on an iPhone or Android through your phone’s Keyboard preferences in your General Settings menu.

Gboard is an excellent alternative to your phone’s default keyboard. Not only does it offer full keyboard access, but several handy features like Google Translate and Google Search, accessible directly from the virtual keyboard every time you use it. 

One possible hang-up when it comes to Gboard is that if it’s not set as your default keyboard, you have to switch out your keyboards every time. If you have multiple keyboards installed, this can be tedious. 

The process is different for iPhone and Android users, the latter of whom may already have Gboard set as their default. But if it’s not and you’re ready and willing to leave your old keyboard behind and embrace that Gboard keyboard life, there is a simple way to set Google’s keyboard as your default on an iPhone. 

Here’s how to do it.
