How to Load the Desktop Version of a Web Site on an iPhone

Did you know that some Web sites have separate desktop and mobile versions? The reason is in theory each version provides the best browsing experience for its platform. That sounds good in theory, but in some cases, the mobile Web sites sometimes leave out necessary features or hide content. That’s especially annoying if you’re browsing on an iPad, where the desktop site would work fine. If you run across such a site while browsing in Safari on the iPhone or iPad, you can ask for its desktop version. To access the Desktop version, press and hold the Reload button at the right side of the address bar, and then tap Request Desktop Site. If the site allows such a request, as do Wikipedia and the New York Times, the desktop version loads (to read the small text, you may need to pinch out to zoom the page).

Want to change your Email Signature from “Sent from my iPhone”?

When you use Apple’s Mail app on your iPhone to send email, the default signature is “Sent from my iPhone.” The iPad is not much different as it’s default signature is “Sent from my iPad.” If you’d prefer to change it to something more personal and not advertise the fact you have an iPhone or iPad with every email you send, don’t bother poking around in the Mail app itself. Instead, go to Settings > Mail > Signature, where you can change the signature to anything you like. You can also delete it entirely. If you have multiple email accounts configured, such as one for work and one for home, you can also set a different signature for each of these accounts in the Mail settings.
