How To Search For Text On A Webpage on iPhone (CTRL+F)
Have you ever been surfing the web using Safari on your iPhone, and came across a page with a lot of text that you wanted to search to find a certain word? Most of us have. On a desktop computer you would use CTRL+F or Command+F to do so, but how do you do it on a smartphone? The good news is that the iPhone has a built in feature to let you search for words on a webpage.
This is how to search for text on a webpage on the iPhone:
Make sure you have Safari open (the default iPhone web browser).
Tap the Search Field at the top of your screen (where the address bar is located).
Type in the word you want to search for on the webpage. Once you type in the word you want to search for, you should see a new view showing Suggested Website, Google Search, and On This Page.
Then, under On This Page, tap Find "word or phrase you're searching for".
You will then be returned to the webpage you were on, with all instances of the word or phrase you are searching highlighted in yellow.
When you're done, you can click the Done button in the bottom right corner.
