Full screen without menu bar

Postby simonmason » Sat Mar 29, 2014 7:46 am

This may have been covered already but searching "full screen" pulls up too many hits! Is it possible to set Safari to launch into full screen mode on my iTouch so the Apple Menu bar at the top is hidden? I see that there is a jailbreak to do this but I was wondering if it was possible in native OS? This is a 4th gen iTouch so running IOS 6 I believe. Thanks.

If you are talking about the 20 pixel top bar that shows the time and battery status then there is no way to hide it. If it is the Safari toolbar you want to hide then you need to save the page to the Home Screen. To do that you will need to press on the center button on the bottom of the Safari toolbar that brings up the system options. You'll see an icon to "Add To Home Screen". Do that and then quit Safari. Then launch the app from the new icon on the iTouch's home screen.

Yes, I was talking about the Apple bar. I will jailbreak the units and run the maximize hack to hide it. Thanks.
