SURF THE WEB WITH SAFARI
Safari, Apple's built-in mobile browser, allows you to surf the web, make online purchases, and save webpages directly from your iPhone. This is an incredibly useful tool if you're in a pinch and find that you need to look something up online.
USING THE SMART SEARCH FIELD
Type URLs and search terms in Safari's search bar located at the top of a webpage or new tab. As you type, a dropdown menu of search results will appear, which you can tap to select. You can also search for words on your current page by typing them in the search bar and then scrolling down the dropdown menu until you see “On This Page.” The first instance will be highlighted in yellow. At the lower left, you'll see two arrows, which you can use to view other matches.
The menu bar at the bottom of the page includes the following buttons: back, forward, share, bookmarks, and tabs. The search bar and menu disappear as you begin to scroll down. To make them reappear, just scroll up. Swiping left or right takes you back or forward in your search history. To return to the top of the page, just tap the top of the screen. To open a new tab, tap the stacked-pages icon in the menu bar, and tap the “+” button that appears in the menu. Tap the Private button on the bottom left to browse the web without saving any history, searches, passwords, or field entries. To close a page, tap the tab icon and swipe left on the page you wish to close or tap the “x” in its top left corner.
SHARING AND SAVING CONTENT
If you'd like to share an article with a friend or save it to read later, tap the Share icon to reveal a variety of options. To view saved articles, tap the open-book icon in the menu bar.
Under Bookmarks, you'll see your search history and bookmarks (which by default are filed under Favorites). Tap the reading-glasses tab to access your Reading List and the @ tab for links that have been shared with you.
AUTOFILL & ICLOUD KEYCHAIN
AutoFill and iCloud Keychain work together so that Safari remembers your name, passwords, and credit card details, and keeps that information synced across your Apple devices. To set it up, go to Settings > Safari, tap Passwords & AutoFill, and enable all of the toggle bars. Under My Info, select your contact from the list. Enter in your credit card information, and tap Done to save. Next, go back to Settings, tap iCloud, and turn on the Keychain toggle. Next time you fill out a web form in Safari, tap AutoFill at the top of the keyboard to automatically fill in your stored information.
