After releasing iOS 15 and iPadOS 15, Apple added a new privacy-focused feature that alters how you use Safari on your iPhone and iPad to explore the web. With the browser upgrade, Safari’s Private Browsing mode will no longer keep track of the pages you’ve viewed or your search history. I’ll describe how to access Private Browser on iOS 15 in this article.
How to Go to Private Browser on iOS 15 (iPhone 13 or iPad)
In iOS 15, using the Private mode in Safari is fairly simple. Each private tab in Safari’s private browsing starts a brand-new session. These brief private sessions are totally isolated not only from one another but also from your main browser window.
Private browsing has the advantage of preventing account log-outs. Also, it won’t save the contents of any forms you’ve filled out, your browsing habits, or your search history. When you close your private browsing window, cookies are immediately destroyed and session data is also deleted.
