Create Home Screen Icon From Safari Website

You and I have certain websites we access frequently. Every time we go to one of these Favorite websites we go through the same motions. This can become a little tedious over time. There is a way to remove all this process by creating an icon for the website in question on your iPhone Home Screen using the Safari web browser. Here is how you do that.

Home Screen Icon

To create this Home Screen icon, you need to go to the website in question in Safari in iOS or iPadOS. Once on the website, tap on the “Share” icon at the bottom of the window.

In the next screen, scroll down and tap on “Add to Home Screen”.

The next window describes what will happen. Just tap on “Add” and an icon of the website appears on your Home Screen.

This is what my icon looks like on my iPhone.

When you no longer need that website icon on your Home Screen, you can delete it. All you have to do is press and hold on the icon and select “Delete Bookmark”.

Remember, you are not deleting an App, you are deleting a bookmark.


If you access certain websites frequently, you can place an icon for the site on your Home Screen for ease of use.
