There are a few ways to save pages from the Safari browser for future reference. We've shown you how to save articles and pages to a reading list, so that you can read them on or offline. Now, let's go over how to add Favorites on your iPhone so you can easily visit your favorite pages. *Note* When you bookmark a page on your iPhone or iPad, the page is automatically saved to Favorites, but not every page I want to bookmark is actually one of my favorite sites or pages. My solution is to organize my regular bookmarks into bookmark folders by category, and save Favorites for my most frequently visited pages and websites. 

  1. Open the Safari app on your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Navigate to the website or page you want to add to Favorites and tap the Share icon
