Apple has kept to a traditional browser user interface for Safari on iPhone for years, ever since the introduction of the first model in 2007. This changes in iOS 15 where the company has popped the address bar at the bottom of the display. Response to this, as with many other Safari changes, was pretty poor, so Apple has now made this optional.

It’s worth pointing out that Apple has also added new settings option to let the users remove website tinting. You can also enable a tab bar while in landscape mode. In the previous beta versions, there was a “Show Color in Tab Bar” accessibility setting that seems to have been renamed as the “Allow Website Tinting” option.

Why is the address bar at the bottom?

When it chose to move the address bar to the bottom of the display we think Apple probably wanted to make iPhones easier to use one-handed while also increasing the amount of available space. I don’t think that has worked particularly well, it means some of the options you most use now need to be clicked through twice and I also think will mean lots of users will end up accidentally searching for things online only to find they’ve been tricked into searching through site-specific search. This is going to create some friction for many – friction I feel will outweigh the convenience Apple had in mind.
