How to Find Text on Webpage in Safari on iPhone or iPad [Guide]

If you are reading a long article on the web and want to find a specific word from it using the Safari web browser on the iPhone or iPad. Then, you’re in the right place. Here’s the step by step guide, by which you can find text on Webpage in Safari on iPhone or iPad (running on iOS 14).

Finding a specific word or phrase is pretty easy on the Mac or Windows, thanks to the Ctrl+F or Command+F command. But, things are not the same on the mobile platforms. Yes, finding a text within a webpage in the Safari web browser on iPhone or iPad isn’t so obvious. But, the feature is still available, there are two different ways by which you can find text on the webpage in Safari on iOS 14.

Although the “Find on Page” feature is available on the Safari web browser, there is also a more convenient way by which you can do this, dubbed Smart Search bar. Luckily, both features can be accessed without sideloading any third-party app or extension.

Let’s dive right in.

How to Search Text Within a Webpage on Safari using Find on Page

  1. At first, Open the Safari web browser on your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Now, navigate to the page that you want to search.

  3. Then, tap on the share icon (weird square box with an arrow pointing out) available at the bottom of the screen.
  4. Pull up the share options page and tap on Find on Page option.
  5. Now enter the word, you want to find on that particular page. In this case, I type the word “swivel” and then tap on the search button. It will automatically highlight the “swivel” word in yellow color, from the particular page. If the word is repeated in this article, you can click the up/down arrow button to dive into the next section.

The Safari will show you the first instance of “swivel” word results, but you can tap on the up/down arrow button to check the next instance or use the same particular word on the same page.

The afore-mentioned ways are one of the best ways to find a particular text on a Web Page. In case you’re using Chrome or Firefox, then you can tap on the three-dots menu icon and use the Find in Page option on your iPhone or iPad running on iOS 13 or iOS 14.
