If you keep certain pages bookmarked in Safari on your iPhone or iPad and want to export those same bookmarks to your Mac or PC, then you’re in luck because there’s a way you can do this without wasting too much of your time.
Adobe today released a new security-focused update for its Flash Player software in an effort to patch a series of vulnerabilities that could give attackers control of your computer. Although Safari on macOS Sierra disables web plugins like Flash by default, Mac owners who have a standalone Flash Player installed on their system are at risk, even if they’re using Flash Player that’s built into Google’s Chrome browser.

MinimalisticUI is a new free jailbreak tweak that aims to make the UI throughout iOS a little less noticeable while you peruse through content in various apps.
The tweak can be used to adjust the transparency and more of tab bars and navigation bars so that they appear to ‘fade’ away as you scroll up and down. Read More
In iOS 10, Safari hasn’t received a major facelift like some other Apple apps have. That’s not saying Safari doesn’t have a few tricks up its sleeve that make browsing the web a more pleasing experience for everyone. One of the little things about iOS 10 that I’m sure many folks will appreciate is the ability for Safari to play videos inline on the iPhone and iPod touch, too.
This feature has been present on iPads for years.
Thankfully, iOS 10 now lets you watch most web videos inline on your iPhone and iPod touch, even while multitasking in Safari. Telling Safari to play a video inside the webpage isn’t as obvious as it could have been, so here’s a little tutorial to get you up to speed. Read More
There are going to be times when you’re browsing the web on your iPhone or iPad and you will have more than one browsing tab open in Safari, but you’re not going to want to keep all those tabs opened forever.
Up until now, you had to close each tab individually, which proved to be rather time consuming. Rather than tapping on the close button for each and every individual one, iOS 10 has two new actions you can use to close out of all opened tabs at once, and we’ll show you each in this tutorial.

Because your iPhone doesn’t have as large and immersive of a display as your computer does, every single last pixel you can squeeze into a website as viewing space can make the web browsing experience better, depending on the circumstance.
It’s that time of the year again and Apple’s September 7th keynote will be kicking off tomorrow in what is expected to bring the unveiling of the next-generation iPhone and some other exciting surprises.
If you’re ready to tune in and see what Apple has to offer, we’ll be showing you in this piece how you can live-stream the event on various devices. Read More
Contact groups can be useful, but as your list of contacts changes over time, you may outgrow the need for some you already have, or develop a need to make more. In this tutorial, we’ll show you how you can delete a contact group from iCloud.com.
Spring-cleaning your contact group list helps reduce clutter in the Contacts app and makes it easier to find the contacts you want right when you need them. Read More
One of the things I find very bland about the Safari web browser for the iOS platform is how all of the bookmarks show the same icon. Not only does this look repetitive and fatiguing for the eyes, but it isn’t as friendly to interact with.
Most modern desktop web browsers show the actual website icon when you bookmark a web page, and the mobile Safari web browser should be no different. If you’re jailbroken, you can install a new jailbreak tweak called BookmarksIcons to accomplish this. Read More
Over the weekend, Pangu and 25PP launched a jailbreak for iOS 9.2-9.3.3, and not long after, iOS developers found a way to make the jailbreak possible via the Safari web browser without the need to use a computer.
Among other enhancements, Safari on iOS 10 boosts the animated GIF experience for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users while preventing spammy autoplay videos from interrupting your browsing, according to the WebKit blog. On iOS 9, an animated GIF won’t start playing until it’s tapped.
With the new Safari, silent videos autoplay on webpages when they’re visible because iOS 10 respects their “autoplay” attribute when source video tracks have no audio or have been muted.
But if a video gains an audio track without user interaction, like those spammy autoplay video ads on websites, playback automatically pauses. Read More
For those who are unaware, Pangu launched a new jailbreak for iOS 9.2-9.3.3 over the weekend. Now, an iOS developer from the jailbreak scene has made it possible to jailbreak your iOS 9.3.3 device directly from your iOS device itself without the need for a computer.
It’s officially JailbreakMe-style, and in this tutorial, we’ll show you how to do it! Read More
Chances are, you download a lot of files on your Mac from day to day. Whether they’re apps, work files, school files, photos, or something else you want to have on your computer, all those downloads have to go somewhere.
On the Mac, the default folder for downloads in Safari is the Downloads folder. In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to change that so your downloaded files go somewhere else on your Mac. Read More
It looks like iOS 10 may not be the only Apple operating system to include dark interface assets as Mac developer Guilherme Rambo tweeted out a number of screenshots showing a dark interface theme in several stock applications on macOS Sierra, including Safari and System Preferences.
This mode is different in appearance than macOS’s existing setting for enabling dark menu bar and the Dock in System Preferences → General. Read More
Love it or hate it, Apple’s Safari is a zippy web browser that performs well on the Mac, and it continues to get more and more competitive with other web browser platforms as OS X, soon to be known as macOS, continues to evolve.
Since Apple wants you to use Safari on your Mac, it’s a no-brainer they’re going to make it easier to migrate your web data from one web browser to another.
In this tutorial, we’re going to show you how you can transfer your web data from a third-party web browser to Safari with just a few clicks. Read More
Safari Technology Preview, an experimental version of the Safari browser meant for testing upcoming new capabilities and web technologies, is a good place to look for clues regarding new features in development.

My colleague Andrew first broke news yesterday that Dark Mode resources have been found within iOS 10’s Messages app. Now, Dark Mode was expected to make an official appearance in iOS 10, but the WWDC keynote came and went without any mention of this feature.
Now Mac Aficionados tweeted out screenshots depicting a dark interface in other iOS 10 stock apps, including an automatic dark mode in iBooks, in addition to the Clock app, Safari and the iTunes Store.
As it turns out, dark interfaces in these apps (sans Clock) have been present for years, indicating Apple’s been testing how users might accept a Dark Mode option on iOS. Read More
Last week, we showed you how you could customize the toolbar on your Mac’s Finder window to better suit your needs, but there are other apps throughout the OS X operating system that come with toolbar-editing capabilities as well.
In this tutorial, we’ll show you how you can customize the toolbar in the Safari web browser to make your web surfing experience the best it can be for your specific needs. Read More
