Apple Pay on the Web

Give customers an easy and secure way to make purchases in Safari 10. Apple Pay allows customers to quickly pay without entering payment, shipping, or contact information on supported websites from their Mac, iPhone, or iPad. Because card numbers aren't used and every transaction is confirmed with a fingerprint or passcode, Apple Pay is more secure than accepting credit and debit cards.

Picture in Picture

Now users can keep an eye on web video while they multi-task on Mac. Picture in Picture lets users float a video window from Safari over their desktop or full-screen app. Users can play video in any corner of their desktop and resize the window to see more or less of what’s behind it. The window stays put even if they switch desktop spaces. The default HTML5 video player in Safari automatically supports Picture in Picture. And if you use a custom video player, it’s easy to add a Picture in Picture control using the JavaScript presentation mode API.

Safari Extensions on the Mac App Store

For the first time ever, you can sell and distribute Safari Extensions through the Mac App Store. The future of extensions development takes place in Xcode, where you can bring new capabilities to your extensions using powerful native APIs and familiar web technologies. Xcode makes it easy to create Safari Extensions using App Extension templates. And if you’ve already developed an app, it’s easy to give users access to your app’s functionality and content, right in Safari.

HTML5 and Legacy Plug-ins in macOS

To deliver faster load times, better battery life, and stronger security, Safari is optimized for HTML5, and will load this content whenever it is available. For websites that use proprietary formats, Safari supports the use of plug-ins such as Flash. In Safari 10, plug-ins are supported for websites where HTML5 is unavailable and may be enabled by users for each individual website. Users can choose to enable plug-ins for one session or every time they visit a specific website. For frequently-visited websites, enabled plug-ins will remain active. For infrequently-visited websites, plug-ins will be disabled.

Content Blockers on macOS

If you previously created Content Blockers for Safari on iOS, you can easily bring them to macOS. You’ll be able to distribute and sell Content Blockers through the Mac App Store. Just like the new Safari Extensions, Xcode makes it easy to create Content Blockers using App Extension templates.

Autoplay and Inline Video on iOS

To help users easily discover your video content, you can now autoplay videos and play them inline with other content on your webpages on all iOS devices. Safari supports autoplay on iOS devices for videos without sound, keeping down the number of distractions on the web.

Split View in Safari on iPad

Users can now view two websites at the same time on their iPad using Split View. Responsive Design Mode makes it easy to see how your websites will render in this view — just tap the iPad preview until it turns into a Split View.
