Create a Custom HTML Signature for Email On an iPhone or iPad

This guide will show you how to create a custom email signature containing HTML (clickable links, pictures etc.) on your iPhone or iPad.

Creating an email signature that includes things like images, links and different fonts means that you need to use a bit of HTML. The default method of changing your email signature on an iPhone or iPad doesn’t let you include HTML by typing it out, but there’s a simple workaround – just follow these steps!

  1. Create your HTML signature outside of the Mail app on your iPhone. Outlook and Mail for macOS both have “signature editors” built in that you can use to create an email signature. Perhaps the easiest way is to use the one built into Gmail. Just open your Gmail, click the Settings button found in the upper-right corner of Gmail, and then click the See all settings button. Scroll to the bottom of the General tab until you get to the Signature: section. Use this little editor to create your HTML signature.

  1. This is great mysticgeek thanks. But what a shame this functionality isnt built into the os and that its only available to new mails being composed – anybody know of other solutions? Sounds like that type of functionality would be a proper os upgrade.
