The iOS 15.4 beta that was introduced today expands support for the custom mail domain feature available for iCloud+, adding an option to set up a custom domain with ‌iCloud‌ Mail directly on iPhone.

If you go to Settings > Apple ID > ‌iCloud‌, “‌iCloud‌ Mail” is now an accessible option and includes a section to set up a custom email domain.

Previously, custom domains could be set up with ‌iCloud‌ Mail, but Apple’s iCloud.com site was needed to make it work and there was no option to configure it directly on the ‌iPhone‌ or iPad.

Setting up a custom email domain requires a paid ‌iCloud‌+ storage plan, which starts at $0.99. The feature is designed to allow a custom email address such as “johnny@appleseed.com” to be used to send and receive emails using ‌iCloud‌ Mail. Although the custom domain feature uses ‌iCloud‌ Mail, emails will be addressed and sent from the custom domain.

Each ‌iCloud‌ user can add up to five custom domains to ‌iCloud‌ Mail, and members of a Family Sharing group can also use these domains. Email addresses currently in use with the custom domain are assumed, and there is also an option to set up new email addresses with the domain.

Custom email domain settings on ‌iPhone‌ and ‌iPad‌ will make it much easier to use custom email addresses. It’s worth noting that this same feature is also available on Mac under System Preferences > ‌Apple ID‌ > ‌iCloud‌ Mail, but it doesn’t seem to work yet.
