3. Change Reader mode font and background colour
One of the most handy features in Safari, Reader mode reformats a cluttered web page to make it easier to read. To activate Reader mode, all you have to do is tap the little four-line button on the left side of the address bar. By default, the background colour for Reader is bright white, while the font is the relatively boring sans-serif San Francisco – better than trying to read tiny text on a busy web page, certainly, but not as soothing as the silky fonts and warm background hues in the iBooks app.
If you look in the top corner of a Reader-enabled page, you’ll see a telltale ‘aA’ button. Tap it, and a menu of alternative fonts and background colours will appear, perfect for switching to a supple serif font with an easy-on-the-eyes cream backdrop.
