Back in 2017, Apple implemented a privacy feature known as the Intelligent Tracking Prevention. This made the sites difficult to track users and prevented the creation of histories and browsing profiles. The feature barred the websites from being able to trace the browsing habits of users without their permission. Now Apple has an additional upgrade to their security feature, which allows the users to hide their IP address from the sites. It is an interesting feature and can be easily enabled on all your iOS and Mac devices. So, if you wonder how to hide IP address in Safari on iPad and iPhone, have a read.
