Reader mode in Safari on iPhone allows you to read a webpage without any distractions. When you turn on Reader mode, only the text and photos are left. This makes it easy to focus on reading the article you’re looking at; I’ve also found that Reader mode makes the text easier on the eyes. Here’s how to use Reader mode in Safari on iPhone.

How to Use Reader Mode in Safari
Open Safari on iPhone and navigate to the page you want to read.
In the URL bar on the left, you’ll see a small icon that looks like a paragraph of lines. Tap that to turn on Reader mode. Note that Reader mode is not available on home pages or on every website.
That’s it; now you can read your article. I often forget about Reader mode, but it’s a feature I really love when I remember to use it. Reader mode makes the text and images center stage, leaving the webpage’s design and interruptions out of it.
