Hide blue links in iOS emails

You may have seen dates and times in HTML emails turn into blue links on iOS devices. This shortcut allows users to create an event from the dates and times. It’s handy to the subscriber opening the email, but if blue links interfere with your branding, you may be less inclined to keep those blue links. There’s a workaround to hide blue links in your email for iOS platforms. Follow these steps.

 

Hiding blue links in iOS emails

 

1. In Modern Editor, click on the HTML tab in the lower left corner

 

2. Add the code below and inside the style tag, above the closing </style>

In the HTML, use ctrl+F to search for 'Media query resets'. Scroll down to the closing </style> tag in this section. Add a return above the closing </style> tag. Paste in the code below.

 

a[x-apple-data-detectors] {
color: inherit !important;
text-decoration: none !important;
font-size: inherit !important;
font-family: inherit !important;
