Designed and developed by Apple, Safari is a web browser specially developed for iOS-based operating systems, including macOS, iOS, and iPadOS. Safari is the default browser on Apple devices.
Apple typically does not have a dedicated customer service hotline or support channel for Safari browser-related issues.

Common Safari Browser Issues & Solutions
Although users trust Apple for its flawless products, this doesn’t make Safari an error-free product. The most common problems encountered by users generally include the following:
- Slow Performance:
- Solution: Clear your browsing history and cache. Disable or remove unnecessary browser extensions or plugins. Ensure your device has sufficient free storage space and memory.
- Frequent Crashes:
- Solution: Ensure you’re using the latest version of Safari. If the issue persists, disable or uninstall any problematic extensions or plugins. Check for software updates for your device.
