iOS 15 introduced a redesigned Safari interface that puts the address bar at the bottom of the screen. If you prefer to keep it at the top of the screen—like most web browsers—it can be easily swapped.
There are a few advantages to having the address bar at the bottom. First, it’s easier to reach with one hand on a large screen. Second, it puts all the browser controls in one place. If you’re still not convinced to give it a try, let’s switch it back.
First, open the Settings app from the home screen.
Scroll down and select “Safari.”
Go to the “Tabs” section and switch it to “Single Tab.”
There you go! The address bar is back at the top of the screen and the other browser controls are still at the bottom.
Regardless of which interface you prefer, the same amount of content is visible, so it’s just a matter of what feels more comfortable to you. Apple continues to make changes and add features to Safari, but it’s not your only browser option.
