Mobile devices like the iPhone and the iPad are so fast and capable that they can easily replace many of the tasks that were previously relegated to a laptop or desktop computer. This includes reading and writing emails. But you might have noticed that any email you write from your iPad includes a signature that reads “Sent from my iPad.” Some people like this added signature, but others think it is unnecessary, or might be information that the email recipient doesn’t need to know. Fortunately this is something that you can delete from your iPad by following the tutorial below.
Removing the “Sent from my iPad” Signature on iPad Emails
We are going to be focusing specifically on removing the iPad email signature entirely, but you can elect to replace it with something else instead, if you wish. Simply enter your preferred signature in the text field after completing the step below where you delete the existing “Sent from my iPad” signature. A signature can be multiple lines, as well.
Step 1: Touch the Settings icon.
Step 2: Select the Mail, Contacts, Calendars option from the column at the left side of the screen.
Step 3: Touch the Signature option at the right side of the screen.
Step 4: Tap inside the signature text field, then touch the Delete key on the keyboard to erase the existing signature.
Note that there is an option at the top of the Signature screen that says All Accounts or Per Account. If you have multiple email accounts on your iPad and want to use a different signature for each account, you can select the Per Account option.
This is also something that you can do on your iPhone as well. Read this article about removing the iPhone email signature.
