iOS 13

Apple has included a brand new Website View menu that combines useful options for browsing web pages, making them less difficult to navigate and easier
on the eyes.
The Website View menu includes one-touch settings that allows you
change text size options,

request the desktop version of a website,

and much more. In this article, we are going to explore the new Hide Toolbar option.
In previous versions of iOS, Safari hides the top and bottom toolbars when scrolling down a web page, and to view them at a later time you must tap the URL or
swipe down on the page.
In iOS 13 however, you can easily customize Safari to hide the toolbar totally when navigating a website, which allows for a less disruptive experience.
You can get the Website View menu in what’s referred to as the Smart Search field located at the top of the Safari window.
