After upgrading to iOS 13, many users have noticed that every time they try to open the context menu of links in Safari, for example, to open them in a new tab, copy or share, it displays a small preview window of the web page. Not to say that his appearance had caused particular inconvenience, but many expressed a desire to disable this item. In the end, it may be distracting, and some even interfere. Then why suffer, if it is possible to easily hide obtrusive component of the browser?

IOS 13 there is a correct tendency, when control elements of the application – not just Safari – gradually move the apps themselves. If earlier to change the browser configuration, we had to follow to “Settings” and there to conjure with options, but today everything is done much easier. Similarly, Apple did with the app “Camera” in which there were separate buttons to change resolution and framerate of the video. Unfortunately, such examples are not many, but judging by the content of the coming beta releases, Apple is actively working in this direction and very soon all settings are available directly in the applications.
