iOS 9: Distraction-free browsing on iPad with Safari’s Reader View

You can access Reader view while browsing the web in Safari. This strips out all the adverts and lets you focus on just the text and images.

To switch to Reader view, tap the status bar, then tap the Reader icon (four lines representing a page of text) to the left side of the website address. To return to the normal view, tap the Reader icon again.
