When you bring up a web page on Safari, and you would like to save it as a favorite, there is a really easy (visual) way to do this…… but it’s kind of hidden.
So let’s go and find it. 🙂
Let’s start by using Safari to bring up a website that you would like to save.
Here I have summoned the website for one of my favorite podcasts, A Way with Words.
To save it as a favorite, just touch the search bar, again. Suddenly, you will see several “squares” representing the websites that your iPhone thought you might like favorited, like Disney and ESPN.
Now, pull DOWN on the page. Two hidden buttons appear, “Add to Favorites” and “Request Desktop Site.”
Tap on “Add to Favorites” and your website will be saved with its own little square icon, as you can see, here.
(The other option allows you to view the regular desktop site instead of the abbreviated mobile one.)
If you need to delete a “Favorite” in the future (or delete the “favorites” that Apple chose for you), just tap and hold a square. “Delete” will appear above the square as an action-option. Now touch “delete” and the square-favorite vanishes. Poof! Gone!
