Syncing Safari web extension across devices and platforms

Last year, Apple introduced Safari extensions on iOS and iPadOS. One of the new features in iOS 16 and macOS Ventura this year is that users can enable extension syncing across their iOS, iPadOS, and macOS devices.

In Safari 16 or later, when a user has installed your Safari web extension on one device, they can install your extension on another device directly from Safari Extensions Preferences, without visiting the App Store. When a user enables or disables your extension on one device, the system syncs that change to the user’s other devices that have the web extension installed. The user can disable syncing for a specific extension. Syncing works for all Safari web extensions, including content blockers.

Control your video with your Game Controller

Do you have your iPad at a far distance from you? Then you can use your wireless PlayStation Controller or Xbox Controller to change instantly the volume of that video player, but also to skip or go to the next YouTube video.
