The swanky new software update, which is available for people with iPhone 6S and newer devices, gives your iPhone a number of impressive new features which include: a more comprehensive FaceTime, a brand new ‘Focus’ feature and ‘SharePlay’ – a feature which allows users to share music and movies over video calls.
But for all the slick new details added into the update, some Apple users have been left frustrated by the changes that have been made to Safari, Apple devices’ default browser app.
The update sees the URL bar, that was once sat at the top of the screen, migrate to the bottom of the display, and disappears entirely as you scroll.
The reasoning behind this change, according to tech magazine WIRED, is to make one-handed scrolling easier for users.
However, some people have found the new adjustment mightily annoying.
Taking to Twitter, one peeved iPhone user wrote: “I got iOS 15 and I am about to ask for apple’s manager if they don’t put the search bar back at the top of Safari.”
A second said: “Ok Apple wtf [sic] did you do to Safari, what is the point of the search bar on the bottom now? This is unnecessary.”
While a third person asked: “Sorry but who at Apple decided to move the search bar in Safari to the bottom of the page in the new iOS update??”
Well, fear not, as there is a way to get the ‘classic’ view of Safari back even after you’ve updated.
If you go into the Settings tab and scroll down to the Safari menu, there’s now a way to move the URL bar.
If you click from Tab Bar to Single Tab, you should find the website address bar has migrated back to its original position.
You can thank us later. Happy scrolling!
