THINK you are an iPhone lover? There are a few Safari tricks that you might not be aware of.
If you’re a regular iPhone user, you’ll want to be proficient with Safari – as it’s the device’s default web browser.
All of these tricks work inside Safari, and they’re easy enough to learn.
And they are necessary for any Iphone user.
The first trick is to open a private browser.
Click on the bottom right corner of Safari, on the square icon.
Then select New Private Tab.
This will open a tab that won’t record your activity in Safari history.
Perfect if you’re gift shopping and have a partner who has access to your phone.
The second trick is to close all tabs on Safari in one go.
Tap the squares in the bottom right corner again.
You can now choose Close All Tabs to remove your Safari tabs completely.
It’s worth doing regularly.
The third trick is an easy way to switch between tabs.
You don’t always have to go to your big tab menu.
Instead, just swipe left or right along the URL bar at the bottom.
It’s faster, easier, and much more natural.
The fourth trick is how to close tabs.
There is an obvious solution that is to exploit the crosshairs on different tabs.
But you can also swipe them away, much faster if you’re trying to close multiple tabs at once.
The fifth trick is a quick way to copy text or photos from Safari.
First, highlight something you want to copy.
And then you can pinch three fingers to copy text or images.
The second pinch will turn the copy into a cut.
You can then spread three fingers apart to paste the text or photo somewhere else.
Some of these tricks may only work if you update your iPhone to the latest iOS version.
To do this, go to Settings > General > Software Update.
