New Safari Features In iPadOS

The new version of Safari in iPadOS (iOS 13) is now a desktop browser rather than a mobile browser. This means sites should look and work like they do on a Mac, not an iPhone. With this comes new features such as a download manager, zoom buttons, per-site settings, and one new feature that even Safari for Mac is missing.

    OH! So THATS how you can get a whole web page into the Share menu and mark it up! I had been hunting for that!

    Gary, what is the button when making a screenshot? I know what the sleep/wakeup button is, but what is the other button you have referenced?

    Rose: You press the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button at the same time.

    Why don’t I see the download icon?

    Jerry: Have you downloaded something? The button only appears if you have something there to list.

    I hope the new MacOS safari has the same whole page share option! I have been wanting something like this for a long Time. Thanks. – For now, I just share to iCloud Drive and then retrieve on my iMac

    Hi Gary! Thanks for the usual great video!
    The part where you indicate a “Download Icon” in Safari, I don’t see on my iPad Pro.
    Is there a setting I must do?
    BTW…I’m in Canada, does that make a difference?
    Thanks in advance for your answer!

    Robert: Have you downloaded anything? It won’t appear if you haven’t downloaded anything as there is nothing to show.

    Gary, by “downloading something” do you mean something other than from the App Store?

    12 months ago

    Robert: No, I mean a download in Safari. Like downloading a file from a web page, etc.

    Gary, I don’t have a download icon either. I have a tone of stuff downloaded on my IMAC. Do I need to download on my iPad also to have a download icon?

    12 months ago

    Alex: The downloads will only show the recent downloads on that browser. So the button will appear when you download something. Otherwise, there is nothing to show.

    Well done…thanks. I am having trouble removing 2nd browser windows and keeping the previous one after I have finished with the 2nd window. Is there a trick for that?

    CJ: Do you mean in Split View? Or tabs? What are you doing to “remove” the second window?
