Apple products are all about customization and freedom of expression. For years, we’ve been able to customize our iOS devices, either with sleek presets created by Apple or with our own photos, videos, and elements. Not many casual iOS users know that you can change more than your lock screen, home background, and ringtone. There’s a whole other world of iOS customization hidden in your phone’s settings that you may not be aware of. That’s certainly the case with people not knowing how to change Safari webpage fonts.

Other iOS Safari Hacks
If you’re enjoying your new fonts on Safari, you might have gotten a taste for some more customization. There’s a whole new world out there when it comes to customizing your Safari app. Here’s some more you can enjoy.
Organize Tabs Into Groups
If you frequently share content with friends and family, you may have found it tedious to individually copy and paste each link and send it to them. This may be a bit easier on a computer as you can utilize copy and paste shortcuts. Instead, iOS devices have tab groups. In Safari, click on the new tab button on the bottom right corner of the app and click on the Tab button in the middle of the new screen. You can see the Tab Groups tab slide up, where you can create tab groups that allow you to send groups of links easily.
Customize Your Start Page
Not enough people utilize Safari’s start page. What’s great about it is that you can put shortcuts to your favorite websites, view frequently visited websites, access links that have been shared with you, or even customize the background. You can fiddle around with all these elements, but perhaps the most fun is changing the background photo. To do this, open a new fresh tab in Safari to access the start page. Scroll down to the bottom and find the Edit button. Here, you can change what modules you wish to see on the start page and choose your background image! You can choose from Apple’s presets or upload your own.
Install Some Extensions
Not many people know that Safari has a whole host of extensions available on the App Store. That’s right, just like your computer browser, you can customize your Safari with certain apps like shopping lists, coupon collectors and adblockers. Simply head over to your Settings app and scroll down until you find Safari. Navigate to the Extensions tab and click on it. Here, you can see any you’ve already installed or tap on Get to see more. You’ll be taken to the App Store, where you can navigate a bunch of different extensions you can install!
