Check the Current Installed Version of the Safari app

Do you need to check the currently installed version of Safari app? Learn how to view the version of the browser running on your device.

The Safari browser assigns a build and version number with every new minor and major update. We can check the currently installed version number under the About Safari menu on Mac and under General Settings for iPhone/iPad.

The built or version number is helpful when we need to report an issue or check if we are running on the latest update.

In this guide, we have shared the steps to check the current build and installed version of the Safari app.
