How to move the Safari address bar from the bottom of the screen to the top

There are two different ways to revert Safari back to the way it used to look. The first one is the easiest, but the second way lets you go back and forth in case you ever decide you want the address bar on the bottom again.

Reminder: this only applies if you’ve already installed the iOS 15 update that rolled out on Tuesday.

While browsing

While browsing a website, click on the icon with the two A’s next to the website’s URL.
You’ll see a Settings menu for Safari.
Tap the option to “Show Top Address Bar.”



Through the Settings app

Open Settings on your iPhone with iOS 15. It’s the app icon with gears.

Scroll down until you find Safari and tap on it.
Scroll down again until you see the “Tabs” section.
Tap “Single Tab” if you prefer the old style with the address bar at the top. Pick “Tab Bar” if you ever want to go back to the new style.



That’s it!
