When we type something into Safari’s address bar on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac, suggestions appear in the address bar. Here’s how to disable this feature if you don’t like it.

Safari, the macOS and iOS browser, includes “Tips” in its searches, elements suggested by the Internet, iTunes and the App Store that take into account cinema programming, nearby places of interest and much more.

With this function – enabled by default on both the Mac and iOS devices – you can see suggestions on the fly in the address bar; sometimes what is proposed is convenient (e.g. to take into account searches already present in the history) but sometimes it is annoying.

If you do not like this feature, both on Mac and iOS devices you can disable it. Here’s how to proceed:

  • Disabling tips in Safari on iOS
  • Go to Settings and select “Safari”.

In the “Search” section, deactivate the entries: “Search engine tips” and “Safari tips”.

These options disable similar searches, which should be able to anticipate when we search or locate plausible results or results related to the history of our web browsing.

Disabling Safari tips on Mac OS

  • On your Mac, open Safari and select “Preferences” from the “Safari” menu.
  • Go to the “Search” section and disable the “Include search engine suggestions” and “Include Safari suggestions” items.

Similar to iOS, “Include hints” allows Safari to provide hints while typing something into the smart search field. Similar to the iOS version you can get tips for news, Wikipedia articles, iTunes music, weather forecasts, sports teams and player information, stock quotes, help from Apple and more.

The “Include search engine suggestions” option allows Safari to ask the search engine to provide search suggestions based on terms entered by the user.
