Step 1: Open Safari
Safari is the default browser that comes preinstalled on iPhones and iPads. It’s a competent web browser that has a lot of security features that help protect your privacy. However, sometimes Safari can have problems. If this happens, here are a few ways you can try to fix the issue and get Safari working again.
First, make sure that the problem is with Safari, not your internet connection. For this, open an app like Facebook or Chrome and see if the website or feed loads correctly. If it does, then your internet connection is probably the culprit.
Next, open the Settings app and tap Safari. From here, you can adjust a number of things, such as how links are opened and whether you want to switch right to a link or open it in a new tab.
You can also set up a shortcut that opens links in a new tab when you tap them. This can be useful if you’re browsing the same site several times and want to quickly jump back and forth between them.
Step 2: Tap the Advanced button
Once you’ve selected the option, you’ll be presented with a number of options that let you customize your Safari browser. Among them are things like search settings, pop-up settings and tab options.
One of the more important options on this page is the Advanced button. Located right at the bottom of the menu, the Advanced button allows you to toggle certain features of your Safari browser.
While this isn’t the only option available on the Advanced page, it is the most useful and can be a helpful feature for improving your experience on your iOS device. You can also use this button to enable some of the most important features on your iOS device including Bluetooth, WiFi, AirPlay and more.
It’s a bit of a hidden gem in the iOS app world, but it’s still well worth checking out. In addition to allowing you to toggle the most important features of your Safari browser, it can help you identify any issues you’re having with your iOS device.
Step 4: Tap the Off button
