Use content blockers
With iOS 9 and iPhone 5s or later, you can use content blockers in Safari. Content blockers are extensions that let Safari block cookies, images, resources, pop-ups, and other content.
To set up content blocking:
- Download a content blocking app from the App Store.
- Tap Settings > Safari > Content Blockers, then set up the extensions that you want. You can use more than one content blocker.
