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 browse a web page. Pull down so you are at the top of the page. Press 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 options. In addition to displaying only some of your bookmarks, the page displays icons for frequently visited websites as well as Siri suggested sites. Click the Show more or Show less link in the upper right to see more or fewer icons.

    After you open a new tab, browse to another site. You can continue to open more websites in this way. Click on an existing tab to open its website, and then press X to close it.

  • Show all tabs

    Touch the icon with the two boxes to see all your open tabs on one screen. Touch X for all tabs you want to close. Touch Done.

  • Auto Close Open Tabs

    Speaking of tabs, the pages you open in Safari have a way to grow and grow until the browser gets messy with dozens of open tabs. With iOS 13 and iPadOS, you can set a certain amount of time to automatically close all open tabs. Go to Settings> Safari> Close Tabs . You can choose to close all tabs manually or choose to close them automatically after a day, a week or a month.

  • Private Browsing

    Tap the two boxes and select Private to open a Web site in Private Browsing mode; press the plus symbol to open a new page. In private mode – which adds a dark background to the address bar – Safari will not keep track of the websites you visit, your search history or the auto-fill information you enter on web pages (but you are not completely anonymous). To leave the private mode, press the double boxes> Private> Ready.
  • Save open tabs as bookmarks

    You can 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 save your open tabs as bookmarks. To do this, touch the bookmark icon at the top or bottom of the screen. In the menu, press the command to add tab bookmarks and your tab pages are all saved.

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

  • Access quick settings

    With iOS 13 and iPadOS, you can find some settings in a special place. Click the double A icon to the left of the address bar. A pop-up menu offers commands to change the zoom level, view the current page in reader view, hide the toolbar, request the desktop or mobile version of the site, and access even more site settings.

    Reader view, as the name indicates, makes it easier to read. To do this in iOS 13 or iPadOS, touch the double A icon in the address bar and select the Show Reader View command, or just hold down the double A icon until the page appears in Reader view.

    While reading the view, press the double A icon again and you can change the font and then hide the reader view to return to normal view.

  • View two pages side by side

    This feature works on an iPad with iPadOS 13.1 or higher. Using the tablet's multitasking skills, you can view two web pages side by side. To do this, open a page. Then drag and drop a link on that page to the right of the screen until it opens in the Slide Over view. You can then move the other window so that both sides are in split view with a vertical bar that you can swipe left or right to change the width of each window.

    With iOS 13 and iPadOS, Safari introduces a Download Manager so you can more easily download files from a website. To download a file, press the link. Click the command to download the linked file from the popup menu. Click the down arrow button in the upper right to see all your downloads. Click on a specific file to see 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.

Open Settings> Safari> Downloads and send them to your iPhone, iPad or anywhere else. Here you can also choose to delete downloaded items after a day, after a successful download or manually.

  • Take a screenshot of the Enter page

    The screenshot feature of your iPhone or iPad lets you capture an image of your current screen, including web pages in Safari.
