If you've been having trouble with pop-ups on your iPhone whenever you try to browse online, you're probably hoping for a way to block pop-ups on Safari. Luckily, your iPhone does have a way to disable pop-ups in Safari so that you don't have to deal with these annoying interruptions anymore. Conversely, you may want a website to be pop-up enabled but realize that the pop-up blocker on your iPhone is stopping pop-ups you actually need. Let's get started learning how to disable pop-ups and enable them again in Safari on your iPhone so you can browse the web in peace. (Note that this article doesn't cover how to disable in-app rating requests on the iPhone; you will need to do that in the App Store settings.)

Many advertisers on the web use a bit of software called cookies to follow you around so they can continue to advertise to you across the web. People are simply more likely to make a purchase if they’re familiar with a product, so cookies essentially make you familiar in the hope that you’ll eventually decide to buy. But with iOS 11 on iPhone, you can ask Safari to prevent this cross-site tracking so that ads aren’t able to follow you around the internet. If you’ve ever clicked on an ad, only to have that same ad suddenly appear on every website you go to, this setting is designed to make that stop. Here’s how to stop advertisers from following you around the web in Safari with iOS 11 on iPhone.

When you do a search in Safari, it preloads the top search result in the background so that if you do indeed select that result, the page will appear almost instantly. What this means, though, is that if that's not the web page you want, you've already used up some of your data to preload it. This is fine if you're on Wi-Fi or an unlimited data plan, but perhaps not a good idea if you're trying to keep down your data usage. Fortunately, you can turn off this feature, thereby avoiding data usage for web pages that you may not want to access.

At one point or another, you’ve probably opened the Amazon app on your iPhone or iPad and tried to buy a Kindle e-book, only to realize you can only download a sample. This may or may not have left you yelling at the screen and Googling, “why can’t I buy a Kindle book on my iPhone?” The whole frustrating experience may lead you to wonder if you can read Kindle books on your iPhone or iPad; thankfully you can. The Kindle Reader app is free to download from the App Store, and you can use it to read Kindle books on your iPhone or your iPad, but you can’t buy Kindle e-books or download books in that app either (you can still buy hard copy books though). I’ll tell you why below, then we’ll go over a workaround that will allow you to buy Kindle books on your iPhone or iPad.

Multitasking on iPad added Split View in Safari when iOS 10 was introduced for iPad. Previously, you could only open up two different apps simultaneously on iPad using Split View. But it only makes sense to use Split View in Safari since we often have multiple tabs open anyway—might as well be able to view two at the same time. There are multiple ways to open Split View in Safari on iPad; here’s how.
