Apple's upcoming iOS 13 for iPhone will include new features in Safari that will improve Internet browsing compared to iOS 12. Some changes are minor, while others add features that did not exist before.
While Safari did not find much love during WWDC, iOS 13 brings a lot of new features to the mix. These features, as well as the impressive privacy-related changes that Apple has made over the years, make Safari an impressive mobile web browser (not that there is too much competition on iOS). We'll be looking for more new options, but first, look at all the changes and updates below.
There is a new menu for the site view
There are more tools available in Safari on iOS 13, so Apple needed to find a location for these tools. This location is located on the left side of the top toolbar where the Reader View option used to be. Now the icon is "AA", which makes you think about font sizes, and when you tap it, you'll see new and old options. Some known options are displayed, eg. B. "Show reader view".
2. The Request Desktop Web Site Has Moved
The "Request Desktop Web site" used to be a long press on the "Refresh" button. As you can see above, it is now available in the new menu as the Request Desktop Web site. The old method was not very obvious to new users, and the new way is more explicit.
3. You can change the page size of a site directly
When you visit a Web page, the text may be too small for you. You need to pull it out to zoom in so you can read it. Sometimes the words are too big. In that case you are just unlucky.
iOS 13 changes this, however. In Safari's new Site View menu, you can tap the left "A" to zoom in on all the text and media on the page, or the right "A" to make it bigger. Unlike a pinch zoom that goes beyond the edges, it retains everything on the web page included in your display.
The options are the same as in Safari in Mojave by macOS, with page zoom between 50 and 300 percent. If you tap the percentage in the middle, you will return to the default zoom level of the website.
4. Settings can be customized per site
As you can see in the above GIFs, there is a "Site Settings" option. Safari on macOS already has this option in the menu bar and allows you to change the settings for each site instead of the entire Safari.
In iOS 13, you can choose to always load a website in Reader View. Set the default zoom level and set Camera, Location, and Microphone permissions to Ask, Deny, or Allow – all features in macOS Safari. There's also a setting that sets the desktop site as a default view on a site-by-site basis.
The Safari menu in the Settings app lets you change the default zoom level set for all websites. If you set a custom zoom level while viewing a Web page and then leave the Web site without returning to the default settings for Safari, the zoom you set will be the new default for this Web site. You can also change it here.  Over 20 functions for Safari on iOS 13 that you do not want to miss ” width=”480″ height=”480″ style=”max-width:532px;height:auto;”/>

You can also tap "Reader" in the Settings app and set this Any Website that supports Reader View opens immediately. If you manually make changes in Safari per site, they will also appear in the "Reader" settings. The same applies to the "Request desktop website" option in the "Reader" settings.
. 5 The Toolbars Can Be Hidden While Scrolling
In earlier versions of Safari, the app hides the top and bottom toolbars when you scroll down a webpage. To view them again, tap the downsized URL above or quickly swipe down the page. The latter is problematic because you accidentally open the toolbars several times while scanning a web page. This is still true for iOS 13, but you can also hide the toolbars with "Hide Toolbar" in the new "permanent" menu. All you have to do to get it back is to type in the downsized URL bar at the top, and all controls will reappear as usual.
6. You can quickly scroll through a page
If you press the scroll bar on the right and then move up or down, you can scroll through the web page quickly.
7. There Is An Updated Home Page
When you open the Home page in iOS 13 by either opening a new tab or editing only the URL, things look a bit different than before. In previous releases, bookmarks could only be displayed in a grid view. If you have a lot of bookmarks, even folders can have problems.
Also, folders and favicons now have drop shadows (except in dark mode) and folders have a gray background instead of white.
8. Popular site pages can be viewed in Siri suggestions
Siri's during a Safari search suggested sites are nothing new, but the section and the popular links of some sites that are showing up are there for sure. For example, if you search for "cnn" rather than just getting the link to the website, the CNN website also displays some links to menus below it. "US", "World" and "Politics".
9. Private mode has a new look
Before you enter private browser mode in iOS 12 and later, the top and bottom toolbars turn dark gray and the URL bar turns light gray. Since iOS 13 has a system-wide dark mode, it was difficult to distinguish private mode in dark mode, so Apple made some changes.
First, the gray URL bar is still an identifier, so that's a possibility. Second, if you open the homepage from a new tab or from the URL bar, a HUGE box will appear, indicating that you are in private browser mode.
When you take a screenshot of a web page in iOS 13, after tapping the preview thumbnail, the typical actual screen shot called "Screen" will open. You can, however, switch. Click the "Up" button at the top of the page. However, if the thumbnail disappears before you can tap it, you can later change it to a full page only in the Preview Editor.
11. You can choose photo size for uploads.
If you need to upload a photo to a website in Safari, you can choose the upload size in iOS 13. The choice ranges from small, medium, large or actual, with the file size being clearly indicated next to each option.
12. There is a Download Manager
Just as you would expect from your desktop web browser, iOS 13 has a download manager directly in Safari. When you download a file, it will appear in the upper-right corner of the URL bar. As stated by Apple, you can check the progress of a download, download files in the background, and preview the download.
On an iPad, you can drag and drop the download to another app, such as Mail. On iOS, however, you can send it to anywhere using the Share sheet. You can also tap the magnifying glass icon next to each download to jump to its location in the Files app.
You can even change the file location for downloads in the Safari Preferences so that your downloads always end up exactly where you want them, and you can set the Download Manager list after a day, after a successful download, or is deleted manually.
13. You can bookmark all open tabs.
Want to delete your tabs but are worried about losing those sites forever? Not in iOS 13. The new Safari includes a feature that lets you bookmark all open tabs. This is a feature Safari already offers on macOS. Just long press the bookmark icon on an iPhone. You can even save them in a custom folder in a location of your choice so you always know where your tabs were.
14. Setting a time for auto-closing tabs
Opening the tab Viewers in Safari may display options for automatically closing tabs after a specified time. If the manual method is still preferred but you change your mind later, you can view the "Closed tabs" section of Safari's Safari "Preferences" and automatically close the tabs after a day, week, or month.
15. The URL bar can be used to open tabs
When you type a site into the URL bar that Apple calls "Intelligent Search" If you have already opened a tab for this site, Safari now allows you to switch to this tab immediately from the results.
16. Editing and Deleting Bookmark Folders is Easier
Previously, on the Home screen, you tapped and pressed a Bookmark folder to access the Edit and Delete options. With a 3D Touch iPhone, you must make sure that you do not press too hard. In iOS 13, tapping and holding or long-pressing a folder displays options in a redesigned context menu.
17. And you can open all the bookmarks in a folder in new tabs.
In the new pop-up menu that appears when you tap and hold a bookmark folder or long press, the "Open in new tabs" option does exactly as it should – open everything in the folder in separate tabs.
18. Links Downloadable Files
With 3D Touch on iOS 12, you can press a link in Safari to take a look at it, then slide up to see options such as: B. open it in a new tab and add it to your reading list or share it. These options were also available in a long-pressed action sheet without 3D Touch, and they are still present in Safari for iOS 13, but you no longer need to swipe up or go to an action sheet to display the context menu.  And since there is a new download manager, you have a new option to download linked files. For example, if you tap and hold the title of this article, you can download an HTML version of it.
19. End-to-End Encryption for iCloud Sync
When you synchronize your Safari history and open tabs with iCloud, Apple protects this data with end-to-end encryption in iOS 13. In previous iOS versions, data was only encrypted non-end-to-end. With more secure encryption, only you can access your data-not even Apple-and only devices signed in to iCloud. Of course, if your Mac is open, or you allow someone to use your iPhone, they'll be able to quickly access your browsing history and bookmarks, but that would be your fault.
While you can not control a site with a light theme, your menus on iOS will be dark. However, developers can set dark themes on their websites to get a better overall experience with Safari. Again, this will be done by developers, so it will vary from location to location.
Some & # 39; new features are not new
There are some features that are either not yet online or have been identified as new to users online in iOS 13 Previously Seen:
A new Tap & Select gesture to highlight of words?
In iOS 13, according to 9to5Mac if you tap a word twice, then swipe left, right, up or down without letting go of the finger after the second tap, select one Text group that you can copy or share. However, this is already possible in iOS 12.3 and lower. On iOS 13 and below, you can also select text on 3D touch devices by pressing and dragging. This is also possible on iOS 13.
More options for email sharing?
Apple points out website with the option "With the new options, you can e-mail a web page as a link, as a PDF or in Reader view from the sharing sheet" in the Safari app from iOS 13 can do all this before, so we are not sure yet what that means.
When you tap Mail in iOS 12 and below on the Share sheet, a draft opens with the link to the web page. When you tap Create PDF, the Share button, and then Email, a draft opens with a PDF of the web page. Before opening the Share sheet, open the Reader view, and in the Share tab, tap Mail to open a draft with a link and to the entire text of the web page written underneath , All this will ring in iOS 13, unless a new menu is displayed when you tap "Mail" in the share that is not currently available.
