Apple has a feature in Safari on Mac, iPhone and iPad that makes it much easier to read news on your favorite websites without having to scroll past a bunch of ads and other filler.
It's called Automatic Reader mode, and when you turn it on, web pages will automatically switch to a much cleaner, easier-to-read format.
For example, this is what a story looks like with Reader View off:
This is what it looks like on:
As you can see, it really lets you focus on the words of the story without other distractions.
Here's how to turn it on:
That's it. Now when you surf the web you'll see clean pages that are much easier to scroll through and read.
There are some downsides, though. News articles with videos embedded don't always show the video, so I turned off Reader View when I wanted to check that.
In addition, it's not perfect: Depending on the site you're reading, it might actually cover the content you're trying to read. When I tested this on ESPN.com, for example, it showed the next story instead of the article I wanted to read.
Last, because Reader View can block certain types of ads, you might be hurting some of your favorite websites, at least if they rely heavily on advertising revenue. But, if there's a favorite site of yours whose ads are so aggressive that they get in the way of the story, at least this fixes that problem.
