With iOS 10, Apple replaced Define with Look Up; instead of selecting Define to learn what a word means, you’ll now tap Look Up. However, the feature is basically the same in that it gives you the definition of a word, but now it will also show you other possible results from not only the dictionary, but also from Wikipedia, the App Store, Twitter, Suggested Websites, and more. Here’s how to use the Look Up feature in Safari.

If you’re planning to do some Internet scouring but want to keep your history private, there’s an easy way to do that in Safari. Gone are the days of needing a separate browsing app for privacy. Since the introduction of iOS 8, Private browsing on iPhone or iPad has become easily accessible in Safari. Just be sure to turn Private browsing off if you want to leverage stored passwords or History. Private browsing on iPhone or iPad is turned off and on in the same place. If you leave Private browsing on, you'll need to remember to turn it off next time you open Safari. Here's how to browse privately in Safari on iPhone.

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.

If you share an iPhone or iPad with others, you may wish to keep parts of your iPhone web browsing history private. But what if you forget to turn on Private Browsing?

Fortunately, there are options for clearing your Safari history on iPhone selectively. Here’s how to selectively clear your browsing history in Safari on iPhone or iPad.

If you have a favorite website you use daily or a personal website you want quick access to, consider adding the website to your Home screen on iPhone. I do this to have quick access to my blog from Home screen. It’s perfect for quickly access a website without needing to open Safari each time. 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. However, some people would prefer to not have their cookies on, especially when it comes to remembering data and tailoring advertisements to the user. 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.

Subscribing to a feed allows you to easily view and manage blogs, websites, or social media feeds from any Safari page. For example, if you discover a blog you really like, adding it to your subscriptions will allow you to quickly access and read any new posts. 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. For websites that do allow it, here’s how to subscribe to a social media feed.

When you’re browsing the web on  your iPhone or iPad, it’s important to protect your information from malicious or fraudulent websites. The problem with this is you can’t always tell which websites are legitimate and which could cause your device trouble or steal your information. 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. Most of us are familiar with doing this on a computer, but you can also search web pages within Safari. This can be especially helpful on a small screen, as it highlights the words you’re looking for and allows you to easily scan through. Here’s how to search a Safari webpage.

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. Therefore, if you type a website name as a part of your search, Safari will look within that website for what you need. 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.

Luckily, there’s a version of this in Safari on iPhone that’s called Find on Page. You can use Find on Page to search a web page for the information you’re looking for.

Safari Reader Mode is one of those features I completely forget about, but it's a great asset when I'm reading articles online. Reader Mode removes the clutter of a webpage so you can focus solely on the content you’re reading. With iOS 9, there are now more options for personalizing the appearance of Safari Reader Mode, including customized font and background color.
