You can customize settings for a specific website you visit often on your iPhone or iPad.
So, next time you visit the website your device will remember your preferences.
To customize a website…
1) Go to a website you visit often, and tap the “Aa” icon in the address bar.
2) Tap “Website Settings”
3) Switch on “Request Desktop Website” if you’d like to always see the non-mobile version. Mobile versions of websites often don’t show as much as desktop versions. They are simplified to run on mobile devices.
With this setting, you can decide for each website if you’d like to see the stripped-down mobile version or the full desktop version of the website.
4) Switch on “Use Reader Automatically” if you’d like to always see the Reader View of this website. The Reader View removes a lot of the website’s visual content and leaves only the text for you to read.
With this setting, you can decide for each website if you’d like to always see the text-only reader view of the website.
5) Scroll down a little, and you’ll also see the options to set the “Camera”, “Microphone”, and “Locations” permissions for this specific website.
You can choose between “Allow”, “Deny” or “Ask”. Leave it on “Ask” if you’re not sure, or if you sometimes allow these permissions.
And there you have it! Next time I visit TheBeatles.com…
My iPad will remember to show the Desktop Version in Reader View.
And I’ll be asked if TheBeatles.com wants to access my Camera, Microphone, or Current Location.
