Get the most from iOS Safari

We all know Safari, Apple's browser that comes standard on all your devices. Many may already know how all the possibilities it offers in its version for iOS, but just in case, you have some indications for which you may take advantage.

Desgraciadametne has a limitation, which is that as iOS does not have a "folder" where you save all files in the system, we can only access the folder of photos and videos, so for example if you have a blog, you can directly upload photos or videos. You only will have to proceed as normal as if you were doing on your computer.

Once you download the page, just have to use the book-shaped button on the bottom and access Reading List.
