How to Email Web Pages on the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad

This tutorial is only intended for users running the Safari Web browser on iPadiPhone or iPod touch devices.

The Safari browser for iOS gives you the ability to email a link to the Web page you are viewing in just a few easy steps. This comes in handy when you want to quickly share a page with someone. Follow this tutorial to learn how it's done. First, open your Safari browser by tapping on the Safari icon, typically located on your device's home screen.

Safari should now be visible on your device. Navigate to the Web page that you wish to share. In the example above, I have gone to About's Computing & Technology home page. Once the desired page has finished loading tap on the Share button, located at the bottom of your screen and represented by a broken square with an up arrow in the foreground. The iOS Share Sheet should now be visible, overlaying the bottom half of your Safari window. Select the Mail button.

The iOS Mail app should now open with a partially composed message displayed. The Subject line for the message will be populated with the title of the Web page which you have chosen to share, while the body will contain the page's Web address. In this example, the URL is In the To: and Cc/Bcc fields, enter the desired recipient(s). Next, modify the Subject line and body text if you wish. Finally, when you are satisfied with the message, select the Send button.
