Ever since the first iPhone launched, Safari was the native browser that shipped with the mobile device. Of course, this makes complete sense as Apple is responsible for developing and continually maintaining the Safari web browser.
Some of us (including myself) don't particularly like the Safari browser as much as competitors like Google Chrome. The Chrome mobile browser is sleek, fast, has an excellent user interface, and allows you to easily sync all your tabs, bookmarks, password, and data between your desktop and mobile browsers.
By following a few simple steps that I will guide you through in the next couple of pages, you can completely replace your native Safari browser on your iOS device with Google Chrome. After you have completed this process, you're Safari browser will no longer be accessible on your iOS device allowing for a full Chrome replacement. Don't worry, if you wish to revert back from Google Chrome you are able to re-enable Safari at anytime.
Step 1: Download Google Chrome from the App Store
Step 2: Return To Your Home Screen & Open Your Settings
Step 3: Locate & Open The ‘General' tab
Step 4: Click On ‘Restrictions' & Enable It
Step 5: Find ‘Safari' In The List Under ‘Allow' & Switch It To ‘Off'
Step 6: Return To Your Home Screen & Position The Chrome Icon Where Safari Used To Be
Step 7: Enjoy Chrome As You're Replacement iOS Browser!
