How to Download Apple Safari on Computer and PC?

Safari Browser is the default browser for iOS and macOS devices with bunches of new features. But unfortunately, these features can only be enjoyed by Apple users. This is because Apple has now restricted the Safari Browser to iOS and macOS users only. The Window OS and Linus OS users can no longer download any latest version of Safari for their devices. Also, the older versions are too outdated to be used. For Apple users, Safari is pre-installed and cannot be uninstalled in any case.

You can easily download the Apple Safari browser on any computer and laptop using the download links below. Safari is the proprietary software of Apple. Hence it’s the default browser available for all the Apple devices like MacBooks, iPhones, iPods, etc. Apple used to support the Windows OS in the past, however, they stopped developing new iterations in recent years.

But, you can still download the last version of Windows and even on Linux OS using the below-mentioned steps. But, as a word of caution, there will be compatibility issues as well as security flaws. Hence, I strongly recommend not to use the Safari browser anywhere except Apple devices.

My sister insisted on downloading Safari on her laptop but I warned her against it. Nevertheless, her stubborn nature won over and I had to teach her how to download Safari for Windows.

Download Apple Safari for Linux OS

Unfortunately, the Safari browser is not available for any Linux OS. Apple has restricted its browser only to Apple devices. However, you can use the software program called wine which can help in downloading the Safari browser for any Linux OS.

Please note that in the below setup guide (credits) we will be using the same SafariSetup.exe file which is outdated. Hence, I strongly recommend skipping Safari in Linux.

Follow these steps to download Safari browser on Linux OS:

  • Install Wine on Linux OS using the below command
    sudo apt-get install -y wine
  • Then create, download, and build a directory
    mkdir -p ~/build/safari
    cd ~/build/safari
  • Download Safari (version for Windows)
    wget http://appldnld.apple.com/Safari5/041-5487.20120509.INU8B/SafariSetup.exe
  • Open using wine
    wine SafariSetup.exe

Follow the setup instruction on the Wine window to complete the installation for Safari on Linux OS. However, it is not at all recommended to download the Safari browser for Linux OS. The first issue that you will face is that of compatibility and being an older version, it might not work properly on your Linux device.

    I would like to download Safari Browser for Windows on my PC, but it seems not be possible.
    I know that it is an old version , without updates.

      Hello, you’re correct. Safari is Apple’s proprietary web browser and has stopped supporting Windows PC long ago. If it’s of utmost importance to use Safari, then you may need to install the Virtual Machine running on MacOS to use Safari. It’s technically challenging but not impossible. However, this should be considered as running Safari on Windows, but housing the entire MacOS on Windows.
