Here's how to bookmark a website on your iPhone using Safari, the default web browser:

  1. Open Safari: Locate the Safari icon on your iPhone's home screen or app library and tap on it to launch the app.

  2. Navigate to the desired webpage: Search for the website you want to bookmark using the search bar or by entering the URL directly in the address bar.

  3. Tap the Share icon: Look for the "Share" icon. It's a square box with an upward arrow pointing out of it, typically located at the bottom right corner of your screen.

  4. Select "Add Bookmark": A menu with various options will appear. Scroll through the options and tap on "Add Bookmark".

  5. Customize your bookmark (optional): A new screen will appear where you can customize your bookmark. Here you can:

    • Edit the bookmark name: By default, Safari might pre-fill the name based on the webpage title. You can tap on the title and edit it to something more descriptive for easier identification later.
    • Choose a bookmark folder (optional): If you have created bookmark folders to organize your saved webpages, you can select a folder to store this bookmark in. By default, it will be saved in "Favorites".
  6. Save the bookmark: Once you've finished customizing (or if you don't want to make any changes), tap "Save" located at the top right corner.

Your webpage is now bookmarked! You can access it later by following these steps:

  1. Open Safari.
  2. Tap on the "Bookmarks" icon. It looks like an open book symbol and is usually located in the bottom bar.
  3. You'll see a list of your bookmarked webpages. Tap on the one you want to visit.

Additional Tips:

  • You can also access your bookmarks from the Safari share sheet on other apps. When you come across a link you want to bookmark while using another app, tap the share button and look for the "Add to Bookmarks" option.
  • Siri can also be used to bookmark webpages. Open Safari to the desired webpage, activate Siri, and say "Bookmark this page".
