The steps in this article are going to show you how to reload or refresh a Web page that you are viewing in the Chrome app on your iPhone.
- Open the Chrome app.
- Open the tab containing the page to refresh.
- Touch the menu button at the bottom-right of the screen.
- Choose the Reload option.
Web pages will often be updated with new content that is generated by the site owner, or even by an action that you have taken on the page itself.
But the page may not always update to reflect those changes, so it’s something that you might need to do yourself.
In Web browsers on your computer this is typically accomplished by clicking a refresh button, or by pressing the F5 key. But in a mobile Web browser, such as the Chrome browser for the iPhone, that isn’t an option.
Luckily it is possible to refresh or reload a Web page in Chrome on an iPhone, although it may not be obvious how to do it at first. Our tutorial below will show you how.
