iOS 15 introduced a range of new features to the iPhone experience, with one of the biggest being the redesigned Safari browser. Though it was designed to make mobile browsing a simpler experience, if there’s one thing people don’t like, it’s change - and people have been very vocal about one feature in particular.

You see, while the Address Bar has traditionally been at the top of the page, it has been shifted to the bottom of the page in iOS 15. It makes sense, bringing the address bar closer to your fingers for easier access, but muscle memory means those moving over from iOS 14 are used to tapping at the top of the screen to access the Address Bar. 

The good news is that there is a way to move the Address Bar back to the top of the screen in Safari in iOS 15. Here’s how to do it. 

How to move the Address Bar in Safari in iOS 15

Moving the Address Bar in Safari in iOS 15 is simple, once you know how. 

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Scroll down and tap Safari. 
  3. Scroll down to the Tabs section and locate the option to switch between the Tab Bar and a Single Tab. 
  4. Select Single Tab to move the Address Bar back to the top of the screen, or select Tab Bar to move it back to the bottom if you change your mind later on. 

It’s worth noting that while the Address Bar will shift to the top of the screen in Safari, the associated buttons will still appear at the bottom. But hey, at least it’s closer to the old design than it was, right?
