Why would I want to block ads?
The Web has gotten messy. Whether it’s ads, social widgets, or spoilers you want to avoid, you can make it a little less distracting by downloading and enabling content blocker widgets after you’ve picked up iOS 9. Here’s how to do so on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.
Where can I block ads?
Only in Safari (or an app using the new Safari View Controller in iOS 9). You’ll also need a device with a 64-bit processor to deal with the background work.
How to block ads on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch?
- Download your Content Blocker of choice from the App Store. (Crystal is recommended) You may not see the Content Blocker option in the Settings app without an applicable app installed.
- Open the Settings app.
- Go to Safari > Content Blockers.
- Enable the blockers of your choice. And that’s it! To disable a blocker, you can just return to this screen and turn off the switch next to it.
