many of us like to in­clude hy­per­linked text in our email sig­na­tures. Of­ten this will be a link to a web­site – per­haps for your busi­ness, or maybe one for each of your so­cial net­work ac­counts.

Sadly, the abil­ity to create sig­na­tures in iOS’s Set­tings app is lim­ited, and doesn’t al­low for hy­per­link­ing text at all. Thank­fully, you can use Pages, which is now free for de­vices run­ning iOS 10.0 or later, to work around this lim­i­ta­tion. The steps be­low show how to ac­com­plish this.

What you can’t do solely with an iOS de­vice, though, is create links that en­able contacts who also use Ap­ple de­vices to call you us­ing FaceTime – Pages doesn’t per­mit you to link to re­sources ac­cessed us­ing pro­to­cols other than HTTP. So, we’ll show you how to use a Mac app with proper HTML-based mes­sage edit­ing to achieve this.
