The Safari Reading List on Your iPhone

The Safari Reading List, available on your iPhone browser, provides a way to save websites that contain content you want to read at a later time so you can easily visit them again.


  1. With a site you want to add to your Reading List displayed, tap the Menu button.

  2. On the menu that appears, tap Add to Reading List. The site is added to your list.


  3. To view your Reading List, tap the Bookmarks button and tap Reading List.

  4. On the Reading List that appears, tap the content you want to revisit and resume reading.


If you want to see both Reading List material you’ve read and that material you haven’t read, tap the All tab in the Reading List pane. To see just the material you haven’t read, use the Unread tab.

To save an image to your Reading List, tap and hold the image until a menu appears, and then tap Add to Reading list. To delete an item, with the Reading List displayed swipe left or right on an item, and a Delete button appears. Tap it to delete the item from Reading List.

The Safari Reader feature gives you an e-reader type of experience right within your browser, removing other stories and links as well as those distracting advertisements. When you are on a site where you’re reading content such as an article, Safari displays a Reader button on the right side of the address field.


  1. Tap the Reader button. The content appears in a reader format.


  2. Scroll down the page. The entire content is contained in this one long page.

  3. When you finish reading the material, just tap the Previous button to go back to its source.

    To enlarge the text in the Reader, tap the large A in the top-left corner.
