The new iOS 15 has not changed much compared to iOS 14. Many readers of our Telegram chat considered the iOS 15 update useless: there are few external differences, and the new features simply did not like it. Actually this iOS has a lot of small innovations, extensions in Safari are one of them. Apple’s browser has always lagged behind Chrome on this issue, and now it has something to brag about. We figured out the new function: what it is, how it works, why use it.

Why do we need browser extensions
Extensions not only decorate the browser, but also make it much easier to use
We notice extensions in the browser when there are none. New ones are constantly appearing in Google Chrome: downloading music, blocking ads – it’s not so interesting anymore. It’s bad when there are no similar features in iOS. The Safari browser in iOS 15 now has support for extensions that make the browser easier to use. Unfortunately, there are not so many of them yet, especially those for which you do not need to pay – extension developers bank in full, raising the price of their plugins to the limit. There are not many Safari extensions yet, but there is something interesting.

Some extensions may get bored or find another more interesting analogue. To prevent the two plugins from duplicating each other, it is better to disable the old one or even remove it altogether. How to do it?

Useful extensions for Safari iOS 15
Unfortunately, there are few interesting plugins in the App Store. But Apple motivates developers to create them. At the moment, various ad blockers are especially popular. I managed to find something interesting and free. The extensions are not only beautiful but also very practical.
The Momentum extension changes Safari in a cool way
It has chrome counterparts, but it looks amazing on the iPhone. The application greets you and sets a pleasant landscape from its own library, displays the weather and geolocation. On the start screen, you will be asked to enter your name and goals for the day. As you complete tasks, you can cross them off the list. Such small pleasant things will allow you to take a break from the routine and rethink your actions. The extension sends daily mantras in order to reboot, or will store yours. Overall, the best extension besides AdBlock. Of the minuses : there is no Russian language.

Turn off the lights
The plugin allows you to darken the screen not only when watching a video, but also while reading
Another unusual extension that can be useful in everyday use. It allows you to dim the entire page when you watch a video. Just click on the icon to disable the feature. By the way, if you don’t like bright light, you can activate a reading extension, for example, our Yandex.Zen – it’s very convenient!
