How To Block Ads On iPhone & iPad Super Easy: After releasing so many updates Apple had finally featured the support for ad blocker plugins for Safari in iOS 9 update. Now users can install apps on their iPhone or iPad that are solely designed to block ads like AdBlock Plus & Crystal, so the user can browse stuff from internet ad-free and faster. Which seems like a great idea because the internet has become a messy place. And why shouldn’t you block ads if the iOS is letting you do this!
You can block those privacy-infringing ads by downloading and installing Adblock for iPhone apps. So here we are going to show the simplest method of blocking ads on your iPhone, iPad, and iPad Touch by using best ad blocker add-on app.
Where can you block ads?
Well, you can stop ads from appearing in Safari and other apps using the Safari View Controller. But if you are using Ad Blockers then your iPhone needs extra space on its accumulator. For that, you need a 64-bit processor device to process all the background work without harming the performance of your iPhone/iPad/iPad Touch. Below is the list of those Apple devices:
- iPhone 7
- iPhone 7 Plus
- iPhone 6s
- iPhone 6s Plus
- iPhone 6
- iPhone 6 Plus
- iPhone 5s

How To Block Ads On iPhone & iPad Super Easy
Crystal and Adblock Plus are two of the best apps available to block ads on iPhones and iPads. But I personally like Crystal due to its performance and moreover it unbiasedly removes every single ad. Now the question arises, how to use an Ad-blocking software/app?
Well, installing Crystal on iPhone or iPad is a straightforward process. After installing the plugin a new option gets added in the Safari settings. Here is how to install and use Crystal on iPhone or iPad:
- Download Crystal (Or Adblock Plus if you like to) from App Store.
- Open the Settings app.
- Go to Safari
- In Safari settings find the Content Blockers option.
- Enable the blocker that you have installed.
That’s it you are done and good to go for surfing. If you use any other ad-blocking software still the process will remain almost same. But I think Crystal is the easiest and effective software to block ads on any iOS device.
To disable any adblocking software on iPhone, you have to go to the same Content Blockers page and diable the app you had enabled previously. These extensions work only inside Safari and next time you open-up the app there won’t be any ad. But advertisements will still appear in other apps.
Now if you want a free Ad blocker then Adblock Plus (ADP) is the best option. You can setup the app using the same steps I mentioned above for Crystal Adblocker. After installing the app, open the app directly and follow on-screen instructions to configure it properly. Here you can manage the white-listed advertisements and customize the blacklist too. Adbloack Plus runs in the background and doesn’t consume much of the resources.
