For Seniors: How to Search the Web on iPhone 4S

You can search the web with the built-in browser, Safari, on your iPhone 4S. If you don’t know the address of a site (or you want to research a topic or find other information online), get acquainted with Safari’s Search feature on iPhone. By default, Safari uses the Google search engine.

  1. With Safari open, tap in the Search field. The onscreen keyboard appears.

  2. Enter a search term. You can tap one of the suggested sites or complete your entry and tap the Search key on your keyboard.

  3. In the search results that are displayed, tap a link to visit that site.

    To change your default search engine from Google to Yahoo! or Bing, in iPhone Settings, tap Safari and then tap Search Engine. Tap Yahoo! or Bing, and your default search engine changes.

You can browse for specific items such as images, videos, or maps by tapping the corresponding link at the top of the Google results screen. Also, tap the More button in this list to see even more options to narrow your results, such as searching for books or YouTube videos on the subject.
