How to customize your Safari start page in iOS 15

iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 allow you to customize your start page in Safari. When you open a new tab, you begin on your start page. You can customize your start page with new background images and options. Here’s how:

° Tap  the double pane icon, then press the “+” icon.

° Scroll to the bottom of the page, then tap Edit.

° Choose options for your start page.

  1. Favorites: Display shortcuts to your favorite bookmarked websites. 
  2. Siri Suggestions: As you search, use Siri to suggest webpages.
  3. Shared with You: See links shared with you in Messages, Mail, and more. See.
  4. Frequently Visited: Go straight to the websites you visit most.
  5. Privacy Report: Stay updated on how many trackers and websites Safari blocked from tracking you. 
  6. Reading List: List pages currently in your Reading List.
  7. iCloud Tabs: Show open tabs from other Apple devices where you’re signed in with the same Apple ID and Safari is turned on in iCloud settings or preferences.

Note: Your custom start page settings are updated on all your Apple devices where you’re signed in with the same Apple ID and two-factor authentication is turned on for iCloud.
