Mobile Safari Tips

Rene Ritchie:

To show you more of the page content, Safari hides the toolbar as you scroll down. Instead of trying to make it reveal itself by scrolling back up […] Tap the very bottom of the screen.

[…]

Touch and hold down on the back arrow button at the bottom left to pull up the history list of pages you visited previously.

[…]

Touch and hold down on the tab you want to reorder. Drag it to the position you want it.

[…]

When the time comes to close a tab, you can hit the small X button at the top left, but if you want to be a little more physical, and have a little more fun […] Toss it away to the left.

[…]

Once you find the web page you want, you might still need to find specific text on that page like a word or phrase. You can still do that in the most recent version of iOS, but the option has moved to the Share sheet.

You can also find in a page by typing your search term in the search box and scrolling to the bottom of the suggestions; it'll show "On This Page". I had no idea it was even in the share sheet.

I wish I had known either of the find-on-page tips; I needed to do that on the go recently and could not figure out what had happened to find!

I see the Share sheet is where everything that is not one of the 5 blessed toolbar buttons is stuffed these days :-P
