Use larger keyboard for entering Web addresses

Safari Bigger, horizontal keyboard When you tap on the Web address bar in Safari, a keyboard pops up to allow you to enter the Web address. You don’t have to enter the prefix (“http://” or “www.”) or the suffix (“.com”) on a Web address. Safari will still find the age. You can also make the keyboard a little larger and easier to use. Simply rotate your iPhone or iPod touch to horizontal position (Fig. 6) before you pop up the keyboard.
