Safari Reader Mode

The Safari browser has a mode called “reader mode.” This mode is useful when you are searching the internet for research or sifting through news articles. Once enabled, reader mode will remove all the ads and unnecessary content on the screen so you can get to the important information quicker. This is done by locating the URL bar at the top of the Safari browser. Tap on the AA icon and select “Show Reader View.” Please note this is not available for all sites, but should work on most research and news sites. Check out the article titled, “iOS 13: How to use Reader View on iPhone and iPad” by to see how this is done.

If you’re having trouble with this feature, stop by the IT helpdesk in the Perkins Library. If you have a tip you want to share or think your peers should know about, please submit them to
