While the mobile Safari app that comes installed on your iPhone is a very good browser, you might find that you prefer to use a different option. One alternative is the Google Chrome browser app. It loads very quickly, and is easy to use if you are familiar with Google Chrome. But perhaps one of the best features about the Chrome mobile app is the fact that you can view pages that are stored on other computers in which you are signed in with the same Google account. So if these features are one of the reasons that you have started using the Chrome app, then you are probably happy with the options it provides. But one feature that you may have difficulty finding is the Refresh button. This is the button that you would push if you want to see if any new content has been added to a page since the last time you loaded it. Fortunately this option is available, and can be used with two button presses.
How to Refresh Web Pages in the iOS Mobile Chrome App
I find that I need to refresh Web pages a lot. Whether I am looking at a page that I have written myself and want to see how my changes look, or if I am waiting for sports scores to update, Refresh is a helpful tool. But when I first started using the Chrome app, I had a little trouble locating the Refresh button. Luckily it is still there and, once you know where to find it, you will be able to update Chrome pages on your iPhone 5 as often as you would like.
Step 1: Launch the Google Chrome app.
Step 2: Tap the Settings button at the top of the window (the button with three horizontal lines).
Step 3: Press the Refresh button at the top of the menu.
