How to Request Desktop Site in iOS 9 Safari on iPhone/iPad

Access the desktop version of a website in iOS 9 Safari on iPhone and iPad. Check the difference between a mobile responsive design and the desktop version of a website on your iOS device.

Even as we have entered into the mobile era hook, line and sinker, our penchant for desktop will always remain. And we would always compare our experiences of browsing internet & surfing websites on mobile and desktop/laptop computers. With the growing number of smartphone users, websites are accessed on the mobile browser. And that is a different experience altogether.

Web designing agencies provide a responsive design to users, who can check the websites on their smartphones. But they would always like to go back and check how the same website appears on their desktop computers. Well, if the desktop or your lappy is handy, you can easily check any website. But what if you don’t have access to that large screen of desktop? Can you still access the desktop version of a website in iOS 9 Safari on your iPhone or iPad?
