Add, Edit, and Manage Bookmarks in Safari on iPhone & iPad

We can save the bookmark links and mark them as favorites in the Apple Safari browser. The saved bookmarks can be organized, deleted, and managed within the browser interface.

When signing in with the same iCloud account, these bookmarks are synced across the Apple device.

  2. Open the Website URL that you want to bookmark or favorite.
  3. Tap on the Share icon on the window.
  4. Select either Add to Bookmark or Add to Favorites command.
  5. Optionally, you can choose the location to save the bookmark.
