Apple has redesigned Safari in the latest iteration of iOS. The most noticeable change since iOS 15 was moving the address/search bar to the bottom of the iPhone display. Instead of viewing a single tab, Apple has created grouped tabs controlled from the new address bar. Fortunately for fans of the classic arrangement there is an option to move the address bar back to its normal location at the top of the screen.
Apple has redesigned Safari with a new tab bar. This address/search bar appears at the bottom of the iPhone screen by default. Many users find this takes some getting used to, as the address bar has always been located at the top of the display. For anyone not enjoying the new setup, Safari makes it possible to bring back the old configuration.
Moving the address bar back to its classic location at the top of the screen can be accomplished two different ways. Either navigate through Settings or make the change directly in Safari on iOS 15 or later.

iOS 15 releases to the general public on Monday, September 20, 2021. In the meantime, find out if your iPhone is compatible with the iOS 15 update.
