dozens of new keyboard shortcuts for browsing using Safari

iPadOS has a very ambitious goal: to make the iPad the main device of the general user. Not to tell him that the iPad is a computer, but to convince him that the iPad will always be an iPad but that it already covers all the basic needs he may have.

To achieve this, Apple developers have added several new details to cover the requests that more users are launching. One of them is a good catalogue of keyboard shortcuts to navigate more efficiently with Safari , so let’s go over what those shortcuts are to get a clear idea of what we’ll be able to do once iPadOS is released on a stable basis for everyone.

All these shortcuts will work with any physical keyboard that we connect to the iPad , either official (the Smart Keyboard Folio or a Magic Keyboard) or a Bluetooth keyboard of any other brand. Of course, we’ll need to have iPadOS installed for them to work, which we can do from late September, and these are shortcuts that will be present in Safari. Alternative browsers such as Chrome or Firefox will have their own shortcuts.
