It is possible to have bookmarks from Safari appear on your iPhone's homescreen as a stand-alone icon. This way, you can access your favourite websites directly from the icon, rather than opening Safari to access them.
Here are the steps required to accomplish this:
- Open up Safari and load a web site.
- At the bottom of the screen you'll see this icon:
- Tap that button.
- Click Add to Home Screen. You may need to scroll left and right through the list.
- This will prompt you to add a name for the icon. When you are done, click Add, and the icon will appear on your homescreen!
