Posted by phil on Lundi déc 16, 2013 Under IPAD, The IPhone Blog

Apple’s web browser, Safari has been given some significant updates in iOS 7. They include a new, unified address and search bar that’s smarter than ever, a new rolodex-like tab interface on the IPHONE, an easier-to-access Private browsing mode, a much-improved Reading List with continuous scrolling between articles, and a similar Shared Links list that surfaces great stuff from the people we follow. Then there’s iCloud Keychain, a simple way to generate, store, fill, and sync passwords, and use credit cards, between all your Apple devices. Finding it all, never mind figuring it all out, can take a little time. That’s why we make ultimate guides, and why we made this ultimate guide to iOS 7 Safari!

How to find web pages, bookmarks, history, and ‘on this page’ with smart search in iOS 7 Safari With iOS 7 Apple has brought the unified address and search bar to the Safari web browser. That means not only can you type in the names of your favorite web sites and get taken right to them, directly, but you can type in any terms you like and get back search results from Google, including top results, standard results, history and bookmark results, and even results from the text of the page you’re currently on. Because some things have moved around, and it’s more tightly packed then ever, it can take some getting used to. But, once you’re familiar with it, the unified smart search field should prove faster and more efficient than ever.

How to quickly close all iOS 7 Safari tabs in just a few taps How to access iCloud Tabs in iOS 7 Safari for IPHONE iCloud Tabs let you quickly and easily access web pages that you’ve already opened in Safari on your other Apple devices, be they other IPHONEs, iPod touches, IPADs, or Macs. That’s right, any and every other Apple device you own, if it’s logged into iCloud with the same Apple ID, will automatically share its tabs with every other device. (Tabs created in Private Browsing mode are excluded, of course – Apple doesn’t judge!) While this isn’t a new feature, and works pretty much the same on Mac and IPAD as it did previously, for IPHONE and iPod touch, the way you access iCloud Tabs has changed in iOS 7. Here’s how it’s done now! How to access iCloud Tabs in iOS 7 Safari for IPHONE How to block adult websites and other pages in iOS 7 Safari If you have children with IPHONEs, iPod touches, or IPADs, or who frequently use yours, and you want to control the type of content they can access when browsing the web in Safari, you’re in luck – iOS 7 lets you do just that.

How to block adult websites and other pages from iOS 7 Safari How to block cookies and stop websites from tracking you in iOS 7 Safari The Do Not Track policy exists to prevent social networks, analytics, and online advertising from following you around the internet and recording your browsing patterns. Browsers that respect Do Not Track – like Apple’s Safari – and websites that respect it, will allow you to surf the web in peace and privacy. Cookies – the way many sites and networks identify and track you – can likewise be blocked in several ways, including just those used by advertisers and third parties, and completely. How to block cookies in iOS 7 Safari How to enabled Do Not Track in iOS 7 Safari How to clear history and cookies in iOS 7 Safari Whenever you visit a webpage using the Safari web browser, it gets recorded in you browser history so you can more easily go back and find that page again should you want to.

If you don’t want a particular page recorded in your history or cookies (we don’t judge!) you can always use Private browsing mode.

How to clear web history from iOS 7 Safari How to clear cookies from iOS 7 Safari How to clear stored website data in iOS 7 Safari Safari, like all modern web browsers, caches data locally not only to speed up access to frequently visited sites, but to let data persist for web apps – including sites like gmail.com – so they can perform more like native apps. However, not only can the stored data build up over time, it can contain private information, or even reveal the names of websites you visit, that you might not want found on your IPHONE, iPod touch, or IPAD (hey, we don’t judge!). Luckily, iOS 7 lets you quickly and easily delete this information – once you know where to look!
