Tired of all the ads, videos, and popups on websites? Let Safari remove all that and simplify web pages to make reading articles more enjoyable.

Safari’s (also called Mode) allows you to read articles on websites without items like annoying ads, videos, sponsored content, and popups asking you to subscribe to newsletters. View removes these items and presents you with a clean page showing only the article text and images.

You can manually activate Reader View in Safari for and Mac on any web page containing an article. But, as of Safari 11 in Sierra and High Sierra and 11 on iPhone and iPad, you automatically activate Reader View where it’s available on certain websites or on all websites. Today we’ll show you how.

Use Safari’s Reader View Automatically on an iPhone or iPad

Enabling Automatic Reader View in Safari on your iPhone or iPad is easy. Navigate to the web site you want to activate automatic Reader View on and open an article on the site.

When viewing a web page with an article in Safari, you’ll see the Reader View icon on the left side of the address bar, which only shows up on web pages with an article.

Tapping the icon activates Reader View for the current web page. To activate Reader View for all article pages on the current site, tap and hold the Reader View icon.

Let Safari Take Care of Simplifying Web Pages for You

Many websites have so much extra stuff on their web pages that it’s hard to read an article without being interrupted by an ad, a video, or a popup dialog that blocks the entire page asking you to sign up for a newsletter.

Reader View simplifies web pages making reading articles easier and more enjoyable. And having Safari automatically activate Reader View when available makes it even simpler.
