If you have a favorite website you use daily or a personal website you want quick access to, consider adding the website to your Home screen on iPhone. I do this to have quick access to my blog from Home screen. It’s perfect for quickly access a website without needing to open Safari each time. Plus maybe the site doesn’t have an app or you don’t want to download, you can turn the website into an icon that looks just like an app and access it directly from your Home screen. Here’s how to add a website to your Home screen.
