What’s New in the Safari App

In this lesson for What’s New in iOS 12 on the iPhone, we look at what’s new in the Safari app on the iPhone with iOS 12 including where Apple moved the Autofill Password option and how to show icons in tabs.

Autofill Passwords
Apple moved where the setting is for Autofill Passwords. This used to be located in Safari Settings, but now that the option works for apps too, they moved it from Safari Settings to the Passwords & Accounts settings. When this is enabled, your iPhone will remember passwords and accounts for websites as well as apps that support this feature.

Show Icons in Tabs
When you are looking at your open web pages in tabs, you can now show the website icon to the left of the name. To see your web pages in tabs, you tap on the two squares in the lower left corner of Safari. If you do not see the icons, you need to go to Settings>Safari. You’ll see an option for Show Icons in Tabs.
