How to Save a Website Bookmark in Safari on iOS 11

While browsing the web, when you find a website that you’d like to bookmark, do the following:

1.) Tap the “Share” icon, found at the bottom of the Safari screen. (It looks like a little box, with an arrow pointed upward coming out of it.)

2.) Tap the “Add Bookmark” icon.

3.) Now, you can either simply save the bookmark in the default “Bookmarks” folder, or you can edit the title for the bookmark, and also select a Bookmarks sub-folder to save the bookmark too.

That’s all it takes, now you can visit your favorite sites by simply tapping the “Bookmarks” icon and tapping the title of the website. (The Bookmarks icon is just to the right of the Share icon.)
