Email signatures are appended to the bottom of emails sent when used, and if you routinely use the Gmail app on iPhone or iPad, or have it created an email signature for Gmail using the Gmail web client, by default it will carry over to your usage of the same Gmail account used on the Gmail app for iPhone or iPad. However, you may wish to have a custom Gmail signature for when using the Gmail app in iOS or iPadOS, perhaps indicating that you’re using a mobile device, kind of like the default iPhone email signature.

How to Add a Signature on Gmail for iPhone or iPad

You will need to be logged into the Gmail app for the account you wish to set the signature for, since each Gmail account can use a different email signature. Remember, if you already set a Gmail signature from the Gmail web app, that will be used by default when sending emails from Gmail on iPhone and iPad as well, so any signature here will be used as a replacement for that when using Gmail app on iPhone or iPad.

  1. Open the Gmail app on the device
  2. Tap the menu icon, which looks like three lines atop one another
  3. Scroll down and choose “Settings”
  4. Add a Gmail signature on iPhone or iPad

  5. Tap the Gmail account you want to set the signature for
  6. Tap “Signature Settings”
  7. Adding a Gmail signature on iPhone or iPad

  8. Toggle the switch for “Mobile Signature” to the ON position
  9. Add the signature you want to use here
  10. Add a Gmail mobile signature on iPhone or iPad

  11. Tap Back to save the Gmail mobile signature

Now any emails sent from the Gmail app on iPhone or iPad will include the mobile signature you specified here in the Gmail app.

Remember, if you have an existing email signature added to Gmail via the web client for Gmail, that signature will be used by default. Therefore, if you use a mobile signature, it will override the default signature, but only when using the Gmail mobile app for iPhone or iPad.

Do you use custom signatures on Gmail emails? Do you have a specific mobile signature for Gmail on iPhone or iPad? If you have any additional tips or insight into setting up Gmail signatures, let us know in the comments.
