how to translate webpages in safari iPhone

Safari is Apple’ default browser. There are only a few iPhone/iPad users who would download any other browser to surf web on their iPads or iPhones. There are two primary reasons for that; first, Safari itself is an excellent web browser that works smoothly on iPads and the second reason is that Apple doesn’t allow you to set your default browser to any browser other than Safari.

Recently, some iPad users have complained that Safari keeps on crashing on their iPads. It Is not often the case that iPads face issues like that. The best thing about Apple devices is that users can easily troubleshoot almost every problem by themselves. So, if you are one of the iPad users facing this issue, here is what you can do about it.

Clear History and Website Data

The first thing you need to do is to clear your Safari’ web history and website data. Frequent surfing of websites without clearing history regularly can affect the performance of Safari. It sometimes can inject bugs in the application which can be dealt with by deleting the website data. Here is how you can clear history and website data on iPads.

1. Go to the Settings of your iPad.

2. Scroll down, locate the option Safari and tap on it.

3. Now find the option Clear History and Website Data and tap on it.

4. Confirm your action by tapping the option Clear History and Website Data in the pop-up box.

Remove All Website Data

1. Go to the Settings of your iPad.

2. Scroll down, locate the option Safari and tap on it.

3. Scroll down to the bottom of your screen and tap on the option Advanced.

4. Tap on the first option on your screen which is Website Data.

5. Tap on the option Remove All Website Data located at the bottom of your screen.

6. Tap the option Remove Now to confirm your Action.

Disable iCloud Syncing

If your Safari is crashing quite frequently then you should turn off iCloud Safari Syncing for time being. There is not much explanation of how this method helps, but it has paid dividends for many users. Here is how you can do that:

1. Go to the Settings of your iPad.

2. Tap on your Apple ID.

3. Locate the option iCloud and tap on it.

4. Now locate the option Safari and toggle it off. It will turn off the syncing.

You can enable it after an hour or so and see if things work fine. If they don’t, then it is recommended that you should keep iCloud Safari Syncing disabled.

Turn Off Suggestions and Autofill

Another reason why Safari crashes often is due to Suggestions and Autofill features being turned on. Turn both these features off and it will troubleshoot the issue with Safari. Here is what you need to do.

1. Go to the Settings on your iPad.

2. Locate the option Safari and tap on it.

3. Next tap on the option Autofill.

4. Now toggle the option Use Contact Info/Names and Passwords/Credit Cards to off.

5. Go back to Safari Settings.

6. Now toggle off the option Safari Suggestions.

Disabling/Enabling the JavaScript

JavaScript also plays a vital part in web surfing. It is either JavaScript being turned on or off that could cause the browser to crash. You need to check JavaScript settings, and for that, you should:

1. Go to the Settings on your iPad.

2. Locate the option Safari and tap on it.

3. Now scroll down to the bottom of your screen and locate the option Advanced. Tap on it.

4. Next, locate the option JavaScript. Toggle it on if it is off or vice versa.

Shutting Down Tabs

The chances of Safari getting crashed are high if you have opened too many tabs on your browser. Too many tabs mean 7-8 tabs open in the same Safari window. To close them down, you need to:

1. Open Safari by tapping on the icon. Usually, you will find the Safari icon located at the bottom of your home screen.

2. Locate and tap the Overlapped Squares icon at the bottom right corner of Safari.

3. Upon tapping a pop-up would appear, now choose either close all tabs or close this tab.

4. If you don’t want to close all tabs then close unnecessary tabs one by one.

Try Private Browsing

If your Safari is crashing every time you open a website then you should use Private Browsing Mode instead of the normal mode. You can do it by:

1. Open Safari by tapping on the icon. Usually, you will find the Safari icon located at the bottom of your home screen.

2. Locate and tap the Overlapped Squares icon at the bottom right corner of Safari.

3. You will see the option Private Browsing at the bottom left of your screen. Tap on it.

4. Tap Done.

Turn off Background App Refresh

If you have just updated your iPad to latest iOS and feel that Safari is slowing down or crashing too much then you should disable background app refresh for time being. You can do it by:

1. Go to the Settings on your iPad.

2. Tap on the option General.

3. Tap on the option Background App Refresh.

4. Toggle if off for Safari.

Reboot your iPad

Press-hold the Home button and power button until the Apple logo appears on your screen. Doing this will refresh the features including Safari and it might start working fine.

Reset All Settings

If rebooting doesn’t work, you may have to Reset All Settings on your iPad. It doesn’t erase any data or content from your iPad so iCloud backup isn’t necessary. You can do that by:

1. Go to the Settings on your iPad.

2. Tap on the option General.

3. Scroll down to the bottom of your screen and tap on the option Reset.

4. Next, tap on the option Reset All Settings.

5. Let the iPad complete the procedure. Check if Safari is working fine once the device is ready to use.
