Command+F & Ctrl+F in Safari for iPhone | Find text on iPhone Safari

Trying to find something – some text – on Mobile Safari on your iPhone?

With web pages become more and more dense with information, sometimes it’s very difficult to get into something you are looking for. There’s just too many text, images, videos and some other distractions.

On Mac or PC to find text/portion of text, you can simply hit “Command + F” (Mac) or “Ctrl + F” (PC) and the browser starts to show search interface where you can key in any text you want to find within the browser page.

Though Apple labelled iPhone as “Brilliant in every way”, but its not so brilliant when it comes to search and find text in a browser.

Unfortunately you can’t simply do the same thing when it comes to Mobile Safari for iPhone. Until today – at the time this article is written, Apple is going to release iOS 13 to the public soon – Apple doesn’t embed “Command + F” or “Ctrl + F” feature on Mobile Safari for iPhone.

So in case you need to find text / portion of text on sea of paragraphs and text in Mobile Safari, how can you do that?

The same method can also be used for iPod touch and iPad.

1) On Safari for iPhone or iOS, open the web page you want to search.
