How to Search for Text within a Webpage on an iPhone

Learn how to search for text within a webpage on an iPhone in this Howcast video.


Hi, Lisa here. I'm going to teach you how to search for text within a webpage on the iPhone. So, first we're going to go ahead and open up Safari. And on this page, I'm on the Wikipedia page for the iPhone. So, what you're gonna do is at the very top where you see the address bar for the actual webpage, so here it says, you actually tap on there, you clear out what you have, and then you type in what you're looking for.

So I'm going to type in iPhone. Now, when you scroll down, first you see your Google search options, you see bookmarks and history that you have with that word, and at the very bottom you have on this page and you can say find iPhone. It will tell you how many mentions there are of that word. So in this case, we have 26. So then you tap on find iPhone, and it will highlight in yellow every occurrence of the word on the page. At the bottom, you have little arrows that will take you to the next occurrence. So you can click forward, and you can keep going through to every mention of it.

Once you've found the one you want, you can hit done on the bottom right and resume your reading from there. And that's how you find text on a webpage on the iPhone.
