Apple's iOS 13 for iPhone includes features in Safari that make browsing the web a little bit better compared to iOS 12.
While Safari didn WWDC, iOS 13 does not bring plenty of new features to the mix.

So, in the Settings app, you can tap "Reader" and Reader View wants to open to it right away. When you make manual changes in Safari, you'll see those in the "Reader" settings as well. The same goes for the "Request Desktop Website" option in the "Reader" settings. Content Blockers can thus be managed as well.

In past versions of Safari, the app hides the top and bottom toolbars when scrolling down a webpage. To view them again, tap the shrunken url up top or swipe down quickly on the page.

Before, in iOS 12 and under, Private Browsing Mode turns the top and bottom toolbars into a dark gray and the URL bar a light gray. Since iOS 13 has a system-wide dark fashion, it has become private mode in dark fashion, so Apple changed a few things.
First, the gray URL bar is still an identifier, so that's one way , Second, when you open the start page, either from a new bar or from the URL bar, there will be a HUGE box letting you know you're in Private Browsing Mode.
Before iOS 13, to take a full-page screenshot of a webpage, the only built-in way to make a PDF of the webpage.
