How to Bookmark Web Pages in Safari on Your iPhone

By Edward C. Baig, Bob LeVitus

It’s simple to bookmark a web page directly on the iPhone. You already know how useful bookmarks are and how you can synchronize bookmarks from the browsers on your computer.

1Make sure that the page you want to bookmark is open, and tap the action icon, in the bottom-middle area of the screen.

You have the opportunity to tap Mail, Message, Twitter, Facebook, Add to Home Screen, Print, Copy, Bookmark, and Add to Reading List.

2Tap Bookmark.

The Add Bookmark screen arrives with a default name and folder location.

3Decide whether to go with the default bookmark name and location.

To accept the default bookmark name and default bookmark folder, tap Save, in the upper-right corner.

To change the default bookmark name, tap the X in the circle next to the name, and enter the new title (using the virtual keyboard). Tap Save unless you also want to change the location where the bookmark is saved.

To change the location, tap the > symbol in the Bookmarks field, tap the folder where you want the bookmark kept, and tap the Add Bookmark button in the upper-left corner of the screen. Then tap Save.

4To open a bookmarked page after you set it up, tap the Bookmarks icon at the bottom of the screen.

Then tap the appropriate bookmark. If the bookmark you have in mind is buried inside a folder, tap the folder name first, and then tap the bookmark you want.
