iOS 13 Tip: Quickly Activate Reader Mode in Safari

In previous versions of iOS it was fairly easy to activate reader mode while on a supported page in the Safari Web browser. All that was needed was to navigate to the Reader button, located toward the upper left hand corner below the status line, and, if you are a VoiceOver user, double-tap. iOS 13 has somewhat changed this procedure as it is now necessary to first activate the Format Options button in order to locate and then activate the reader view. However, there is a quicker way to activate the reader mode that is almost as fast as it was with iOS 12 and earlier. Simply double tap and hold the Format Options button. This will enable the reader view.
