Yes, we are sure that you know all these gestures. That you learned them the first second after you took the iPhone in your hands. But, perhaps, you can still find something new in this collection. Below, we’ll talk about 10 gestures that can be used in the Safari version for iOS.
Perhaps, the most famous and often used gesture, which allows you to move up, not coping dozens of times on the screen. In order to move up the screen, you need to tap on the status bar at the top. If the address line is in a compressed state, you need to tap twice.
Address bar display
In order to display more content on the small screen of the iPhone and iPad, Safari hides the address bar. In order for the application to show it again, you need to tap on the top of the screen or snap the web page up.
Quickly copy or save an image
In order to quickly save the image, you need to hold the finger on it and click “Save Image” or “Copy”. If the dialog box is not displayed, then the image is most likely embedded in the web page.
Going back and forth
You can open past pages in three ways:
- Tap on the arrow “Back”.
- Swipe from the edge of the screen.
- Holding the Back arrow will open a list of all past pages.
You can also open those pages from which you have already gone back earlier. To do this, you need to hold your finger on the “Next” arrow and select the desired page.
Quick add to bookmarks
In order not to go to the sharing menu, you can add a page to the bookmark in another way. You need to hold your finger on the bookmark button (the icon with the open book) and select “Bookmark”.
Swapping open tabs
In the open tab menu, you can not only close pages with gestures, but also change their order. Hold your finger on the desired tab and then move it to the desired location.
And a convenient chip. appeared in iOS 8 allows you to close the tabs in one gesture. To do this, open the tab bar and copy the unnecessary tab to the left.
In order to restore closed tabs, you need to go to the tab bar, hold your finger on the “+” icon and tap on the tab you want to restore.
