There are two tools I like to use when reading in the Safari web browser on my iPad, especially if there are a lot of ads on a page. This is good information for personal use and for teachers to share with students in the classroom.
When there are four lines on the top left corner of your browser, clicking those moves the screen into a reading-friendly view.
By clicking on those lines, you launch the Reading View, and the four lines turn black.
Additionally, there is an aA in the corner, indicating readers can change the fonts and font size.
Images that are included in the article remain, but ads and formatting that can seem cluttered on a small screen disappear.
In the following examples, notice how the Wikipedia notice disappears, and how the screen color and font size and type is adjusted.
Easier reading is just a few clicks away!
