How to use and customize Safari on your iPhone or iPad



  • Open Safari

    First, let's see what you can do in the app itself. Open Safari and surf to a web page. Swipe down so that you are at the very top of the page. Tap the + sign to open a new tab.

  • New home page

    With iOS 1

    3 and iPadOS, the Safari home page, which appears when you open a new tab, now offers more choices. In addition to displaying just a few of your bookmarks, the page displays icons for frequently visited sites as well as sites suggested by Siri. Tap the Show more or Show less link at the top right to see more or fewer icons.

    After opening a new tab, browse to a different site. You can continue to open more sites this way. Tap an existing tab to open the site, and then tap the X to close it.

  • View all tabs

    Tap the two squares icon to view all your open tabs on one screen. Tap the X for each page of tabs that you want to close. Tap Done.

  • Automatically closing open tabs

    Speaking of tabs, the pages that you open in Safari grow and grow until the browser fills up with dozens of open tabs. With iOS 13 and iPadOS you can set a specific time to close all open tabs automatically. Go to Settings> Safari> Close tabs . You can choose to close all tabs manually or have them closed automatically after a day, a week or a month.

  • Private navigation

    Tap the two squares and select Private to open a site in private navigation mode; tap the plus icon to open a new page. In private mode (which adds a dark background to the address bar), Safari does not track which sites you visit, your search history, or the auto-complete information you enter on web pages (but you are not completely anonymous). To leave private mode, tap the double squares> Private> Done.
  • Save open tabs as bookmarks

    You may have many open tabs that you want to close but that you do not want to lose those pages. With iOS 13 and iPadOS you can save your open tabs as bookmarks. To do this, press the bookmark icon at the top or bottom of your screen. Tap the Add Bookmarks for Tabs command in the menu and your tabbed pages will all be saved.

  • Bookmark Page

    Do you want to create a bookmark for your current page? Tap the Share icon and select Add Bookmark or Add to Favorites.

  • View bookmarks and history

    Tap the Bookmarks icon to view your bookmarks. For a peek into your history, tap the clock icon to see the & # 39; s pages you've recently visited. When you are finished, tap the Bookmarks icon again to close the menu.

  • Read offline

    You can save a web page to read it offline. On the page you want to save, tap the Share icon, and then tap Add to Reading List.

  • Access to reading list

    Tap the Bookmarks icon and tap the Glasses icon to open pages in your reading list online or offline. . Tap the page that you want to read. By default, the page disappears from the reading list after you have read it. To view all pages, including the ones you have already read, tap the Show All link at the bottom of the menu; tap Show unread to return to a list of unread items.

  • Access to fast settings

    With iOS 13 and iPadOS you will find certain settings tucked away in a special place. Tap the double A icon to the left of the address bar. A pop-up menu provides commands to change the zoom level, show the current page in Reader View, hide the toolbar, request the desktop or mobile version of the site, and access even more website settings.

  • Reader View

    Reader View, as the name suggests, makes it easier to read. To do this in iOS 13 or iPadOS, tap the double A icon in the address bar and select the command to show Reader View, or press and hold the double A icon until the page appears in Reader View.

    In Reader View, tap the double A icon again and you can change the font and then hide Reader View to return to normal view.

  • View two pages next to each other

    This function works on an iPad with iPadOS 13.1 or higher. Using the tablet's multitasking skills, you can view two web pages & # 39; s side by side. Open a page for this. Then drag a link on that page to the right of the screen until it opens in the Slide Over view. You can then move the second window so that both pages are in the split view with a vertical bar that you can drag to the left or right to change the width of each window.
  • Sharing links

    You can send or copy a link for the current web page to other apps and services. Tap the Share icon. You can now choose to send a link via SMS, email, reminder, Facebook or Twitter. From here you can also add the page to your home screen or print it.
  • Sharing Options

    With iOS 13 and iPadOS 13, there is another way to share webpages. After tapping the Share icon, tap the link at the top for Options. You can now choose to share the page as a regular web page, as a PDF or as an archive.

  • Downloading files

    With iOS 13 and iPadOS, Safari introduces a Download Manager to make it easier to download files from a website. To download a file, press its link. From the pop-up menu, tap the command to download the linked file. Tap the down arrow button at the top right to view all your downloads. Tap a specific file to view it. You can also access downloaded files from the Files app by selecting the location for your iPhone or iPad and then navigating to the Downloads folder.

    By default, Safari’s Download Manager saves files in the Downloads folder on iCloud. But you can change the location. Open Settings> Safari> Downloads and send them to your iPhone, iPad or another location. Here you can also choose to delete downloaded items after one day, after a successful download or manually.

  • Take a screenshot of the Enter page

    With the screenshot function on your iPhone or iPad you can take a picture of your current screen, including web pages & # 39; s in Safari.

To do this, press the appropriate buttons on your iPhone or iPad to take a screenshot. Tap the preview thumbnail of the recording. Tap the Full Page button in the preview screen. An image of the entire webpage is then stored in the location that you choose.

  • Privacy and security

    Scroll down to the Privacy and security section. You must enable all settings here, except Block all cookies, as you may still want to allow cookies for sites that you visit directly. For more information about these settings, tap the & # 39; About Safari & Privacy & # 39; link.
