If you regularly make use of Safari’s Reading List feature to save web content for reading later in your free time, you may be interested in checking out the offline reading feature that’s available for reading list items. This makes sure your reading list items are accessible at all times, even if the iPhone, iPad, or Mac is not online.
For those who haven’t tried this feature out, Reading List allows you to save webpages and organize them so that you can check them out later. It’s similar to a bookmark, except that its main focus is written content. However, these saved webpages will still require an internet connection to load up by default and you cannot expect to stay connected to Wi-Fi or LTE at all times. This is exactly where the offline reading list items come in handy. For example, you can load up an iPad, Mac, or iPhone with a bunch of news articles to read before going on a trip.
Whether you have an unreliable internet connection or you want to read content while you’re traveling, you may want to save some of your reading list items offline. Let’s take a look at how this works on iPhone, iPad, and Mac.
