3 useful Safari features that will improve the way you browse the Internet
Safari offers a wide variety of features on iOS and iPadOS

Last week we were discussing a lot of tricks for Safari on iPhone, iPad and Mac through which it was possible to preview content, customize the main screen and play videos in overlay, among others. This time we return to the charge with more tricks for Safari that will help you improve your web browser experience.

Many iOS and iPadOS users are not aware of all existing features in Safari. Some of them are hidden in hard-to-reach drop-down menus. Now that we have your attention, enjoy these Safari tricks for iPhone and iPad.

Safari Tricks and Features

Safari is the default web browser for Apple operating systems. It is a very reliable web browser and offers a number of very useful features that you should be aware of on iPhone and iPad.

Change site URL address bar

Until recently, Safari’s URL bar has always been located at the top of the browser. With the advent of iOS 15, Apple changed its position to the lower area to improve the reach with the use of the iPhone in one hand. However, all users can change the position of the address bar as per their convenience by following these steps.

  • open Settings on your iPhone.
  • Access the section Safari.
  • Choose “Tab Bar” if you want to have the url address bar at the bottom.
  • Choose “One Tab” if you want to have the URL address bar in the upper area.

Add web apps to the home screen

One of the coolest features in iOS 16.4 allows users to have push notifications for web apps. But what are web apps or webapps? Basically it’s about web pages that can be added to the home screen and they look like a normal application. Follow these steps to create your own webapp.

  • open Safari in you iPhone or in you iPad.
  • Next, go to a web page that you want to include on your home screen.
  • Press Safari’s share button or share button.
  • Select the option “Add to home screen”.

Close tabs automatically after a while

Surely many of you already know how to close multiple tabs (by holding your finger on the tabs button) in Safari thanks to the browser tricks we have shared, but did you know that it is also possible to close tabs after a certain amount of time has passed?

Here are the instructions to close Safari tabs automatically after X time:

  • open the app Settings in you iPhone or in you iPad.
  • Then go to the section Safari.
  • Then enter the section “Close tabs” on the “Tabs” panel.
  • Select one of the available options.

With this functionality you can make Safari automatically close all open tabs after one day, after one week or after one month.

Here ends our new collection of tricks for Safari. We hope you have found them useful and we encourage you to share them on your social networks.
