How to Check Safari Version on iPhone, iPad, and Mac



Check Safari version

Quick Answer

  • Check Safari Version on Mac: Open Safari browser → Choose About Safari → Get the Version number.
  • For iPhones and iPads, the device’s firmware version is the Safari version number.

The Safari browser on iPhone, iPad, and Mac eliminated one major issue for all users. The browser can’t be updated manually. When you update your iPhone, iPad, or Mac to its latest firmware, the Safari browser will be updated automatically. This is where my curiosity kicked in, and I searched for possible ways to check the version number of Safari.

What I found out is not an expected one. In the Macbook or iMac, you can get the defined version number of the Safari browser. But with iPhones and iPads, there is no specified version number for Safari. The version number of Safari is mentioned as the OS version on the Apple official site. The iOS or iPadOS version number is the Safari version. If you want to find the version number of the Safari browser, you can follow the steps below.
