Make Safari better in iOS 15 with these great apps and their extensions
Safari got some improvements with extensions in iOS 15. Here are the best apps to improve your overall mobile Safari experience so far.
Apple has released iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 to the public today, which means that the masses are finally able to access some fantastic new features. These new features in Focus, Live Text in photos, SharePlay, a new Safari design, and of course, brand new Safari extensions.
Even though iOS 15 is new for many people, developers have had it for several months through the developer beta program and have thus developed new apps that take advantage of these new features. Here are some amazing new apps that take advantage of the new Safari extensions capabilities in iOS 15 on the best iPhone.
Grammarly is a popular tool for writers, including many of us here at iMore. With Grammarly, you get real-time writing feedback, including spelling and grammar, so everything looks good, and you don't look like a fool.
The recent update for Grammarly brings it to Safari through the power of an extension. So whenever you're writing something out in Safari, the Grammarly extension will help you out with spelling, grammar, and even punctuation. You'll be able to win all of those internet arguments without looking silly.

Grammarly makes sure that all of your spelling, grammar, and punctuation are correct, no matter what app you're using.
1Password is one of my most-used apps, and plenty of my colleagues here at iMore use it as well. It's a fantastic password manager that lets you generate random, secure passwords, save all of your password info, secure notes, software licenses, email info, and so much more. And now it's even better for iOS 15 with Safari extension support.
That's right — 1Password now works on mobile Safari just like it does on the desktop version. You get password suggestions directly on the page, automatic filling across multiple pages, integration with third-party services, and popover access to all your items. And everything is safe behind your master password, Touch ID, or Face ID.

These days, every major tech company feels like they want to be a publisher of news. And with Google's Accelerated Mobile Pages format, that's pretty much the case. With AMP, it's supposed to work like Facebook's Instant Articles and Apple News. But here's the thing — not everyone likes AMP links.
Amplosion is a Safari extension that aims to fix all of that. Created by Christian Selig, the creator behind the popular Reddit app, Apollo. With Amplosion, you can easily redirect AMP links to their normal counterpart. And once you enable it, everything happens automatically, so you don't even need to do any heavy lifting with your fingers. Of course, there's an option to whitelist sites you like, and there is a counter that lets you see how many times Amplosion has saved you from an AMP link.
