How to create an email signature with the iPhone Mail app:

  1. Open “Settings” app on the Home screen
  2. Scroll down and tap “Mail”
  3. Find and tap “Signature”. Each email account will have its own signature section.
  4. If you have multiple email accounts synced with Apple’s Mail app, there will be an option to select “All Accounts” to apply the same email signature to every account or “Per Account” to apply to select email accounts.
  5. Once you’re finished creating your signature, select the arrow to save your signature settings.

If you have previously set up an email signature that was created directly through Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook, etc., it will not be native to the iPhone Mail app. We usually suggest people to go into their sent folder, find an email they sent from their computer, and copy their signature to the iPhone mail app.
