If you don’t change any of the Mail settings on your iPhone then you are probably including an email signature on any of the emails that you send from the device.
The default iPhone email signature is “Sent from my iPhone” and is fairly obvious to most people that you are sending the email while you are out and about, or while using your phone.
There is less of a stigma to this than there was a while ago, but you may not want people to know that you are sending an email from your phone.
You can remove the iPhone email signature by going to Settings > Mail > Signature > then deleting the signature text from the box.
Once that signature box is empty, emails that you send from the iPhone won’t include that obvious text to let your recipients know that you aren’t at a computer.
Our article below will show you more about the iPhone signature removal process.

Step 2: Scroll down and select the Mail option.
Step 3: Scroll to the bottom of the menu and choose the Signature option.
You should see the current signature under the Signature wording.
Step 4: Choose whether you want to use the signature for every account or a different signature for each account, then delete the current signature that you don’t want to use.
You can add a new signature if you would like to, but you can just leave the signature box empty if you don’t want to use a signature at all.

More Information on the iPhone 13 Signature
If you have more than one email account on your iPhone 13 then you have the option of using a different signature for each of those accounts.
To do this you will need to select the Per Account option after you select Signature from the Mail menu. You can then enter the desired signature into the box for each respective email address.
The signature setting is only for mail sent from your iPhone. It won’t affect mail that you send from other devices like an iPad or the iPod Touch. It also won’t change any signature settings that you might have when sending email through a Web browser or in other applications like Microsoft Outlook.
If you are using another email app on your iPhone, such as the Gmail app if you have a Gmail account, then changing the signature from the Settings menu won’t change the signature in that app. It only affects the default Mail app on the iPhone.
