Navigate Forward and Backward between Pages in Chrome on iPhone & iPad

Are you looking to navigate forward and backward in Chrome browser? Learn how to move ahead or return using the arrow buttons under the Menu.

Google Chrome includes a built-in navigation button with Forward (left-facing) and Backward (right-facing) arrows to make the desired action. If you tap and hold these navigational buttons, it will display the page history.

It also supports swipe navigation, allowing us to swipe left or right on the screen to navigate within browsing sessions.

In this guide, we have shared the steps to navigate to the previous and next pages within a browsing session in the Google Chrome app.

Navigate Backward to the Previous Page

If you’re browsing the internet and want to visit a page you’ve read, then you can use the backward navigation to revisit the page. Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Launch the Chrome app on your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Open a website of any choice and navigate as you wish
  3. Click the Back button to go to the previous page.

You can also use the back button to see previously visited websites, mainly browsing history.

Navigate Forward to the Next Page

If you’ve navigated backward from the last page, the forward navigation arrow will become active, and you can tap again to visit the next page. Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Open the Chrome app on your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Open a website of any choice and navigate as you wish.
  3. Click the Forward button to go to the next page.

You can also use the forward button to see all possible preloaded pages.

Bottom Line

When surfing news websites or any web magazine portal, you might want to return to the previous page. If you are already on the previous page, go next.

Moreover, by pressing and holding the navigation button, you can open a new tab or view your browsing history. But if you don’t see the buttons working, you are already at the first or the last page.

Similarly, you can navigate backward and forward within Chrome on computer. You can click and hold the navigational arrow button to open the page history.
