Safari has received several visual changes with iOS 15. One of them was this feature called Website Tinting. As you can guess from the name, this feature adds a shade of color to the top portion of the Safari app on your iPhone. This tint changes according to the current color scheme of the webpage you have open.
If you wonder how Safari looks with Website Tinting enabled or disabled, you can enable it to see for yourself. You can also find quick steps to turn off Website Tinting below if you dislike this feature.
What does Safari Look Like with Website Tinting On and Off?
Say you are on a site with a mauve-colored top bar; when Safari Website Tinting is turned on, your iPhone status bar, where you see the time and battery status, will adopt the same color as the website, which would be mauve in this example.

When you turn off Website Tinting, the top portion of your iPhone screen will be the usual white and gray. Or, it will be black and deep gray (while you are using Dark Mode).
