How to specify referrer URI when navigating to a page in Storyboards WebView in Swift

 When navigating a Storyboards WebView to a new URI, you may want to specify a referrer URI. When using the WebView, we can do this using the load function. To use this function, we need to create a URLRequest. From a URLRequest, we can add a value for referrer to the request, then pass it into the load function of the WebView like so.


let myURL = URL(string"")

var myRequest = URLRequest(url: myURL!)

myRequest.addValue("", forHTTPHeaderField: "Referer")


This will navigate the WebView to the specified URI with the specified referrer URI.
