Create Email Signatures For Your iPhone or iPad [Just A Tip]

Do you still have “Sent from my iPhone” at the bottom of emails you send from your iPhone? There’s a way to remove or edit this signature feature if you so desire and it’ll only take you a minute. If you have numerous email accounts setup on your iPhone or iPad, you can personalize a signature for each account too.

Before we show you how to edit signatures for every account, let’s simply work on removing or editing what you already have. If you’re not sending emails from your iOS devices that require some sort of further contact information, you may not need to edit your signature information—but it’s your call. In order to access this function go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Signature. By default one signature will be for all accounts. If you choose “Per Account,” a unique signature can be used for each account you have setup on your iOS device. Go through each email account and edit what you’d like your signature to be for each account.

When I found out you could edit this, I used to have “Sent from my iPad, you know you want one.” I used to get so much crap from some of my non-Apple friends.

One thing to note here is when you edit this setting, it will not automatically carry over to your iPad settings and vice versa. Each devices settings are mutually exclusive. Now with that being said, if you were to buy the iPhone 6 that’s being revealed September 9th, as long as you setup this new device from a backup and you already changed this information, everything will be exactly the same on your new iPhone. This rings true for purchasing and setting up a new iPad too.

If you are sending important business emails or you would simply like your email signature to look the same as it does when you’re working from your Mac or PC, you can do this too. If a signature you use for a specific email account has links to your Facebook or Twitter account, website, etc, you want to make sure those links are part of your signature. In order for this to work, it does requires a few more steps, but it’s still simple.

The first thing you need to do is get into the sent mail folder for the account you want to copy the signature from. Pick any message you’ve previously sent that has your signature on it. Highlight all the signature information you want use and select copy. Now go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Signature, and select “Per Account” if you haven’t done this already. Scroll down to the email account you want to edit the signature information for, delete the current signature and paste what you just copied from your sent email. Viola, now when you send an email from your iPhone or iPad using this email account it will look like you’re sending it from your office. All the links are live and when you send an email from this account the end user will be able to connect with you even better. Continue this process for each email account you would like to have signature information for.
