Safari Reading List on an iPhone
Khamosh pathak

If you use Safari as your default browser on your iPhone, iPad or Mac, you don̵

7;t need an external read-later service like Pocket. You can use Safari’s built-in Reading List feature to save articles for later reading in an environment without distraction.

Using Reading List in Safari for iPhone and iPad

Safari’s Reading List feature syncs all saved articles across your devices, so you can save an article to your Mac and read it on your iPhone or iPad at your leisure.

You can save open articles as well as links in the Reading List. To start, open the Safari app on your iPhone or iPad and open the page you want to keep for later.

Then tap the Share button on the toolbar.

Tap Share from Safari

Choose the option “Add to Reading List”. This method also works in apps that use Safari’s in-app browser.

Tap Add to Reading List from Share Sheet

To quickly add the current page to the Reading List, simply tap and hold the bookmark button and choose the “Add to Reading List” button in the popup.

You can find all of your reading list articles in a separate tab in the Bookmarks section. To get there, tap the bookmarks icon on the toolbar.

Use Reading List Offline on iPhone, iPad and Mac

By default, the Reading List feature does not download the articles for offline use. If you want to read articles on your commute to work, this can be a problem. Fortunately, there is a setting that enables the offline reading list feature.

Open the “Settings” app on your iPhone or iPad.

Visit Settings on iPhone

Go to the “Safari” section.

Tap Safari from Settings

Then, in the “Reading list” section, enable the “Auto save offline” option.

Tap to enable offline reading list

You can enable the same feature for Mac as well.

After opening Safari on Mac, click on the “Safari” button in the top menu bar and choose the “Preferences” option.

Click Preferences from Safari Settings

Navigate to the “Advanced” tab and enable the “Automatically save articles for offline reading” option.
