    for those who have iPad OS 13 installed on iPad mini can you tell me in Safari loads up the desktop sites or not? I’ve seen on a YouTube video someone says it loads mobile still. I’m not sure if that is. Snug or if it’s because it’s the smallest iPad in the range.

    Thanks.

    It won’t be for all sites because not all sites are setup for such.

    Apple states in their release notes “some” sites....”

    No it won’t. It’s still loading mobile sites.

    Maybe for you. I have ipadOS loaded and as I said, YouTube and some sites do load in desktop.

    If you do it’s not as seamless as on the iPad Pro 11 inch that I have. That loads up pretty much all sites that I’ve tried in desktop mode without fiddling with anything. Definitely a different experience.

    I finally forced my mini to load sites in desktop mode by clicking on the “Aa” and requesting desktop sites. It’s not on by default the way it is on the 11.

    It’s a bit of a mixed bag for me—sites like YouTube, MacRumors, and Ars Technica all load in desktop view on my Mini 5 running iPadOS 13 while others load a mobile version. Personally I tend to prefer mobile layouts, especially for readability while multitasking on the Mini’s smaller display. ;)

    At least you can configure on a per-site basis easily now. Best of both worlds.

    It depends on how the site is developed and at what resolution the full vs compact version kicks in.
