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.
