Using bookmarks is handy for saving websites that you visit regularly or want to be able to reference in the future. But Safari also offers a Favorites feature that lets you visit your most loved websites with a tap or a click.
Your Favorites will show up when you open Safari, a new tab, or a new window. You can change this, of course, in Safari’s settings. However, using the Favorites feature lets you go directly where you want to each day.
If you’re new to this feature, we’re here to help! Here’s how to add Favorites in Safari on iPhone, iPad, and Mac.
Add Favorites in Safari on iPhone and iPad
It’s super easy to add a website to your Favorites on your iOS device. Navigate to the website you want as a favorite and then do the following.

Manage your Favorites on iOS
