Although there are some websites that still force you into the App Store when tapping on a link in Safari, there is a way to stop Safari from automatically opening app variants of it when you click a link. # So... When you tap on a link (that has an app variant of it [that is also installed on your phone]) it will redirect you to the app, correct? Once you're at the app now, on the top left of your status bar—you should see, "< Back to Safari", then on the very right you should see the website link, example: "reddit.com >" if you tap that, it will redirect you back to your Safari and your device will now remember to never redirect you to the app unless you tap on the grey banner underneath the URL link. I just realized this... because I was wondering why my iPhone 6s kept opening up only webpages while my iPad or old iPhone kept opening up the apps!
