How do I turn on Safari Audio on my iPhone?

Answered by Cody Janus

To turn on Safari audio on your iPhone, you can follow these steps:

1. Open the Safari app on your iPhone. It is the browser icon that looks like a compass.

2. Tap on the “Settings” icon, which is usually located at the bottom right corner of the Safari app.

3. In the settings menu, scroll down until you find the “Safari” section. It should be towards the middle of the page.

4. Tap on the “Safari” option to open the Safari settings.

5. In the Safari settings, you will see various options. Look for the “Settings for This Website” option and tap on it.

6. A pop-up window will appear with settings specifically for the website you are currently on. Here, you can customize the audio settings.

7. Look for the “Auto-Play” setting. By default, it may be set to “Never Auto-Play” or “Stop Media with Sound,” which prevents audio from playing automatically.

8. Tap on the “Auto-Play” setting to open the options. You will see a list of choices such as “Never Auto-Play,” “Stop Media with Sound,” and “Allow All Auto-Play.”

9. Choose the “Allow All Auto-Play” option. This will enable audio to play automatically on websites when you visit them using Safari.

10. After selecting “Allow All Auto-Play,” you can simply click away from the settings window to dismiss it. The changes will be saved automatically.

11. If necessary, you may need to refresh the website or reopen it for the changes to take effect. Once done, audio should now play automatically on Safari.

It’s important to note that enabling auto-play for audio can be convenient for certain websites, but it can also lead to unexpected noise while browsing. If you find it disruptive, you can always go back to the Safari settings and disable auto-play by choosing “Never Auto-Play” or “Stop Media with Sound” again.

In my personal experience, enabling auto-play for audio on Safari has been useful for websites that have audio-based content, such as news websites with video clips or music streaming platforms. However, it can also be annoying on websites that have excessive advertisements or intrusive videos. It’s a personal preference, and you can always adjust the settings based on your needs and browsing habits.

To summarize, to turn on Safari audio on your iPhone, you need to access the Safari settings, find the “Settings for This Website” option, and change the “Auto-Play” setting to “Allow All Auto-Play.” Remember to refresh the website or reopen it for the changes to take effect.
