Here’s how to automatically set Safari’s Reading View on iPhone and iPad. Safari allows you to use a specialized reader

The web browser application Safari offers several tools to take full advantage of the flexibility and dynamics of the operating system and the powerful processing power of iPhone and iPad. It’s even possible to use experimental features of Safari to enjoy new software that hasn’t officially reached Apple electronics yet.

With iOS 16 and iPadOS 16, the Cupertino-based company has introduced many new features to Safari. But before the latest software updates, there was already an extremely useful feature for iPhone and iPad when browsing websites. We’re talking about Safari’s Reader View, and there’s a little trick to automatically activating the Safari reader only with certain webpages you choose.

What is Safari Reader?

Safari Reader is a reading view mode that completely redesigns the web browser interface into a minimalist and ad-free version that helps you focus on reading the content. It even allows you to customize some elements of its design.

If you want to use Safari reader, you’ll be happy to know that it’s available on iPhone, iPad, and Mac. Activation mode is as simple as pressing a button located in the top left corner of the screen (Command + Shift + R on Mac) next to the URL address bar. When you access a website that can be activated, the text “Reader available” appears next to the Reader icon in the URL address bar.

In addition, as expected, the Safari reader has an auto-activation feature for specific websites on iPhone, iPad, and Mac.
