There are options to:
- Add to Reading List
- Add Bookmark
- Add to Favorites
- Add to Quick Note
- Fidn on Page
- Add to Home Screen
- and more
There is even an “Edit Actions” button at the bottom of the menu where you can customize the different options that appear on this menu.
You can also send links to contacts that you communicate with a lot, plus you can send Web page links via email, in social media, or open them in other Web browsers that you might have installed.
Speaking of other Web browsers, there are options for the iPhone, like Chrome, Firefox, and Microsoft Edge, that you can use instead of Safari.
If you are using one of those other browsers, you can send Web page links in text messages using similar methods in those browsers as well.
For example, if you are using the Chrome iPhone web browser, you would tap the Share icon in the address bar at the top of the screen, where you will see a sharing option similar to the one found in Safari.
You can also copy a Web page address by tapping in the address field at the top of the Safari page, which will select the URL. Once it’s selected, you can tap and hold on to the address and choose the Copy option. You can then go to the text message, tap and hold in the message field, then select the Paste option.
