How to Search the Current Web Page with Touch
If you don't have a keyboard connected to your iPhone or iPad, you can search for text on the current page using the touchscreen, although the feature is tucked away on a not before obvious place. This technique works on both iPhone and iPad.

An on-screen keyboard appears at the bottom of the screen and the current web page address is highlighted. If you want, you can clear the address bar by tapping the backspace key on the keyboard (or tap the small "X" in a circle next to the address).
Type what you want to find on the page. Find the & # 39; section on this page & # 39; at the bottom of the search popup. Tap the line below it that starts with & # 39; Search & # 39 ;.
The popup will close and you will see the webpage again with a search bar at the very bottom. Safari will highlight all the results of your search on the current page.
You can scroll through the results, up and down the page, with the arrows next to the search bar.
When you're done searching, tap "Done" in the bottom left corner of the screen. The "Search on page" mode is closed.
