Any brakes can really ruin the experience of working with an iPhone or iPad, and one of the most unpleasant cases like this is when the Safari browser starts to slow down. Alas, this happens: regardless of the “gravity” of the loaded web page, the browser starts to lag with scrolling, freezes during loading, and for some iOS users, there was a case, even iPhone or iPad Safari crashing.

However, this situation, although unpleasant, is not hopeless. If it’s not the page you are loading, but the browser itself, there are a couple of simple tricks that can significantly speed up Safari.

Clearing Saved Data

The operation of any web browser is associated with the storage of certain data on the device, and Safari is no exception. First of all, we are talking about cookies and browsing history; With active web surfing, such data can accumulate a lot, and cluttering up the memory has never improved performance.

You can correct the situation in the following way:

  • Open the Settings;
  • Select Safari;
  • Tap “Clear History and Website Data”;
  • Tap “Clear” again, confirming the action.

Safari Keeps Crashing on iPad or iPhone?

JavaScript is used for various interactive elements on websites. This is the language that most programs written directly in the browser window are written in: autocomplete scripts, content filtering, etc. All this extends the capabilities of the browser, but slowdown may become a board. So, if the previous procedure did not help, you should try disabling JavaScript:

  • In the Settings, under Safari, tap on “Advanced”;
  • Turn off the JavaScript item in the menu that opens.

This solution is also not without side effects: some elements on websites may not work correctly. At the same time, most of the time, JavaScript that is disabled does not interfere with web surfing, and if necessary, you can quickly turn it back on.


Surely many users are familiar with these methods and put them into practice. But there are those who are not in the know – or in the know, but have forgotten. I hope this article will help you solve problems with Safari!
