Using and customizing Safari on your iPhone or iPad



  • Open Safari

    First, let's look at what you can do in the app itself. Open Safari and navigate to a webpage. Swipe down to be at the top of the page. Tap the plus sign (+) to open a new tab.

  • New Home Page

    On iOS 1

    3 and iPadOS, the Safari home page, which displays when opening a new tab, now offers more choices. The page not only displays some of your bookmarks, but also icons for frequently visited websites and sites suggested by Siri. At the top right, tap the More or less link to see more or fewer icons.

    After opening a new tab, navigate to another site. This will allow you to open more websites. Tap an existing tab to open the site, and then tap the X to close it.

  • Show all tabs

    Tap the squares icon to display all open tabs on a screen. Tap the X for any tab page you want to close. Touch Done.

  • Automatically close tab opening

    Speaking of tabs: The pages opened in Safari grow larger and larger until the browser is crowded with dozens of open tabs. On iOS 13 and iPadOS, you can set a specific time to automatically close all open tabs. Go to Settings> Safari> Close Tabs . You can close all tabs manually, or set them to close automatically after a day, week, or month.

  • Private Browsing

    Tap the two squares and select Private to open a site in private browsing mode. Touch the plus icon to open a new page. In private mode, which adds a dark background to the address bar, Safari does not track the websites you visit, your search history, or the AutoFill information entered on web pages (but you are not completely anonymous). To exit private mode, double-tap > Private> Done.
  • Bookmarking open tabs

    You may have many open tabs that you want to close, but you do not want to lose those pages. With iOS 13 and iPadOS, you can bookmark your open tabs. Press the bookmark icon at the top or bottom of the screen. On the menu, tap the Add Bookmarks for Tabs command to save all the tab pages.

  • Bookmark page

    Do you want to bookmark your current page? Touch the Share icon and select Add bookmark or Add to favorites.

  • Edit bookmark

    If necessary, change the name of the bookmark. Touch Save to save it.

  • Show bookmarks and history

    To view your bookmarks, tap the bookmark icon. To take a look at your history, tap the clock icon to see the last pages viewed. When you're done, tap the bookmark icon again to close the menu.

  • Read Offline

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

  • Accessing Reading List

    To access pages in your Reading List online or offline, tap the Bookmark icon and then the Glasses icon. Touch the page you want to read. By default, the page is removed from the reading list after reading. At the bottom of the menu, tap the Show all link to see all pages, including those already read. Tap Show Unread to return to a list of unread items.

  • Get Quick Settings

    See iOS 13 and iPadOS for specific settings in a specific location. Touch the double-A icon on the left side of the address bar. A pop-up menu provides commands for changing the zoom level, displaying the current page in Reader view, hiding the toolbar, getting the desktop or mobile version of the site, and accessing other site settings.

  • Reader view

    The reader view makes reading easier, as the name implies. In iOS 13 or iPadOS, tap the double-A icon in the address bar and select the command to display the Reader view or hold down the double-A icon until the page appears in the Reader view ,

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

  • Show two pages side by side

    This feature works on an iPad with iPadOS 13.1 or higher. With the tablet's multitasking capabilities, you can display two web pages side by side. Open a page. Then drag a link to this page and drop it to the right of the screen until it opens in the Slide Over view. You can then reposition the second window so that both sides are in split view and have a vertical bar that you can drag left or right to change the width of each window.
  • Share links

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

    On iOS 13 and iPadOS 13, there is another way to share web pages. After tapping the sharing icon, tap the options link at the top. You can now share the page as a regular web page, as a PDF or as an archive.

  • Download files

    With iOS 13 and iPadOS, Safari introduces a download manager that lets you download files to a website more easily. To download a file, click on the appropriate link. In the pop-up menu, tap Download Linked File. Touch the down arrow button in the top right corner to see all your downloads. Tap a specific file to view it. You can also access downloaded files through the Files app by selecting the location for your iPhone or iPad and then navigating to the Downloads folder.
  • Changing the Download Folder

    By default, the Safari Download Manager saves files in the iCloud download folder. But you can change the location. Open Settings> Safari> Downloads and send it to your iPhone, iPad or other location. You can also choose to remove downloaded items after a day, after a successful download, or manually.

  • Create screenshot of the Enter page

    The screenshot feature on your iPhone or iPad allows you to capture a picture of your current screen, including the web pages in Safari. In the past, the screenshot function just grabbed the visible part of a web page and cut the rest of it off. With iOS 13 and iPadOS, you can now capture the entire page. To do this, press the correct buttons on your iPhone or iPad to take a screenshot. Touch the preview image of the recording. On the preview screen, tap the "Full Page" button. An image of the entire website is then stored at any location.
  • Safari Settings

    Let's take a look at the key settings that you can customize for Safari. Open Settings> Safari> Siri & Search . Here you can choose where information from Safari will be displayed when you ask Siri a question.

  • Default Search Engine

    Under Search settings, you can change your default search engine to Google, Yahoo, Bing, or DuckDuckGo.

  • AutoFill Settings

    Tap the option for AutoFill where you can choose Which information is automatically entered on websites? You can choose to fill out your contact information, but not names and passwords or credit card information.

  • Customizing Safari

    You can tell Safari to keep track of frequently visited sites, allow access to your favorites when you perform a search or create a new tab, open new tabs in the background, show the Favorites bar, and Show the tab and block pop-ups.

  • Privacy and Security

    Scroll down to the Privacy and Security section. You should enable all settings except "Block all cookies" here, as you may still want to allow cookies for websites that you visit directly. To learn more about these settings, tap the About Safari & Privacy link.
  • Deleting cookies and other data

    If you want to delete the cookies, history, and other data stored in Safari, tap the Clear History and Site Data setting. Then tap Delete in the pop-up box.
