How to Change Safari Theme Color Based on Website on Your iPhone

If you are using iOS 15, iPadOS 15, or newer on your iPhone or iPad, you might have come across the option “Website Tinting” in Safari settings. So, what is it? Safari Website Tinting gives you an immersive reading experience while visiting websites and blogs.

Let’s see website tinting in action on Safari for iPhone.

Whats Is Safari Website Tinting?

Website Tinting is an additional visual improvement Apple just gave to the Safari browser on your iPhone or iPad. While visiting websites or reading blogs in Safari, you might have noticed the iPhone status bar at the top in gray color. If you ever found this uncomfortable to look at, website tinting is the way to make it go away.

When you enable Safari Website Tinting, the status bar of your iPhone will change to the top-most color of the website you are in. This makes the border between the website and the iPhone status bar disappear. You will get a more immersive and comfortable view while visiting any website from your iPhone. Take a look at the image below for a detailed comparison:

  1. My website comes up red on some views and I have no idea why. It looks like safari is flagging a virus or something. Is there a way to force sarfari to a specific color through HTML? metatags or something?
