Reader mode in Safari on iPhone allows you to read a webpage without any distractions. When you turn on Reader mode, only the text and photos are left.

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.

When you search the web in Safari on your iPhone or iPad, the default search engine determines what site is used to look for results. Even if you’re in the Safari browser, you can still choose to use Google search instead of say, Bing or Yahoo. iOS also gives you the option to use DuckDuckGo for Safari, which doesn't track a user's search history, for greater privacy. Changing the default browser on an iPhone or iPad is easy. You can choose what you want your iPhone default search engine to be within Settings. Here’s how to change your default search engine in Safari on iPhone or iPad. Please note that if you set Google as your default browser in Safari it is different from browsing the web with Chrome. To make Chrome the default browser on your iPhone or iPad, simply download the iOS Chrome app from the App Store and browse the web using the Chrome app instead of the Safari app.

Plus maybe the site doesn’t have an app or you don’t want to download, you can turn the website into an icon that looks just like an app and access it directly from your Home screen. Here’s how to add a website to your Home screen.

If you use Google Chrome on your computer, you’re probably familiar with a browser's ability to save your password for login websites. But did you know that Safari on iOS has the ability to suggest passwords for you? And Safari will then store the secure password for later use. This is an awesome feature, because not only does Safari create a far more secure password than your dog’s name plus your birthday, but it stores the password so you don’t need to remember it too. Here’s how to get a Safari password suggestion.

When it comes to 3D Touch, it’s hard to know when you can and can't use it. Since it’s a fairly new feature on the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, even Apple apps are still updating software to include options like Quick Actions or Peek & Pop. One such occasion when you might not realize you can use Peek & Pop for is when viewing your Bookmarks in Safari. This is a great way to see where your saved links lead and makes clearing old bookmarks much quicker.

Internet browsers allow websites to store cookies on your device to improve your experience. When you visit a website and it remembers your email and password for you, that’s a cookie working.

Or, instead of blocking cookies altogether, you can also clear them every now and again. Here’s how to block cookies and how to remove cookies already on your iPhone.

You’ll know which websites allow you to do this by whether or not the Add to Shared Links icon appears in your Share options.

When you’re browsing the web on  your iPhone or iPad, it’s important to protect your information from malicious or fraudulent websites.

However, Safari has a built in function that will warn you with a Fraudulent Website Warning before you open a suspicious website. Here’s how to turn this on.

When you’re searching for specific information on the web, it’s helpful to be able to locate keywords and find the information you need without having to skim whole articles.

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.

On by default, Safari Quick Search uses search shortcuts to look within websites.

For example, type “Youtube cat video” to show YouTube search results for cat videos. If you’d rather this feature be turned off, here’s how.
