This is where you dive into the world of web settings. Safari’s settings allow you to control how your browser functions, much like the captain of a ship steering through the seas of the internet.
Find and tap on ‘Advanced’ at the bottom of the Safari settings.
Under the Advanced section, you’ll find the nuts and bolts of your Safari experience. It’s where you can fine-tune the technical aspects of your browsing.
By flipping this switch, you’re telling your iPhone, “Hey, let’s take a break from all that fancy interactive stuff on the web.”
Increased Speed and Reduced Data Usage

Less dynamic content means fewer distractions.
Potential Compatibility Issues
Some web services and applications may become unusable.
Remember, every update to iOS might shuffle settings around or add new features, so it’s always a good idea to stay current with what each new version brings to the table. Staying informed means staying in control.
