Even though Safari makes it really easy for its users to save images, it doesn’t mention the options directly. In other words, when you simply tap on an image, you won’t see the save option immediately. Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Open the Safari app on your device.
  2. Search for the image you want to download.
  3. Tap and hold the Image file for preview mode, and pop up the options list.
  4. Select the option on the Save to Photos option.
