Step 4 Select Allowed Apps.

Showing Hidden Home Screen Pages

How to Add Safari to Your iPhone Home Screen

Want to have easy access to Safari the moment you unlock your iPhone? Here's how to add it (back) to your Home Screen.

Did you accidentally remove the Safari app, and you're now wondering how to get Safari back on your iPhone's Home Screen? Look no further, as there are a few ways you can add Safari back to the Home Screen.

Fortunately, Apple doesn't allow deleting or uninstalling the Safari app since it's the native browser on iOS. So, it's not permanently gone from your iPhone.

So, if you removed the Safari app from your iPhone's Home Screen and cannot find it anywhere, this guide should help you put it back on the Home Screen.

1. Add Safari From the App Library

iPhones come with the App Library feature that shows you all the installed apps grouped in folders of their categories. If you've removed Safari from the Home Screen, you can check the App Library on your iPhone and add it from there.

  • Swipe to the right-most Home Screen page on your iPhone until you reach the App Library .
  • Tap the search bar on top and type Safari. The Safari app will appear in the search results.
  • Long-press on Safari's icon and tap Add to Home Screen .

You can also drag the Safari app to the Home Screen if the Add to Home Screen button is missing from the menu.

2. Add Safari From Spotlight Search

Another way to add the Safari app back to the Home Screen is by searching for it using Spotlight. This feature lets you find apps, settings, contacts, and more.

Here's how you can use the Spotlight search feature to find and add the Safari app back to the Home Screen on your iPhone:

  • Tap the Search icon at the bottom of your iPhone's Home Screen (above the dock).
  • Type Safari, and you'll find the app in the search results.
  • Tap and hold the Safari icon.
  • Select Add to Home Screen .

Alternatively, you can drag the Safari app to one of your Home Screen pages from here.

3. Unrestrict Safari From Screen Time Settings

If you can't find Safari in the App Library or Spotlight search, it's likely because the app is restricted in the Screen Time settings. Follow the steps below to remove the Screen Time restriction for Safari on your iPhone:

  • Launch Settings on your iPhone.
  • Go to Screen Time > Content & Privacy Restrictions > Allowed Apps .
  • Toggle on the switch for Safari .

That's it. You should be able to see the Safari app on your Home Screen after toggling on the Safari switch. Editing your Screen Time settings is also one of the best ways to fix Safari not working on an iPhone .

4. Reset the Home Screen Layout

If none of the above methods worked, you should try resetting your iPhone's Home Screen layout. Doing this will delete any folders you've created on your Home Screen, and all the apps, including Safari, will return to their original location. Here's how you can do it:

  • Open Settings on your iPhone.
  • Go to General > Transfer or Reset > Reset .
  • Choose the Reset Home Screen Layout option.

After doing this, you should see the Safari app back on your iPhone's Home Screen.

Put Safari Back on Your iPhone's Home Screen

Safari comes pre-installed on all Apple devices, including the iPhone, iPad, and Mac. So, even if you accidentally removed the Safari app from your iPhone's Home Screen, it's not completely gone from your device.

You can easily fix this issue by adding the Safari app from the App Library, removing the screen time restriction for Safari, or resetting your iPhone's Home Screen layout. But if you still can't find Safari on your iPhone, it's time to report your issue to Apple.

Just like Mail and Messages, Safari is a part of the app package that comes pre-installed on iOS and macOS. Safari is also the default browser on iPhone, iPad, and Mac. Hence, you cannot Offload or delete Safari unlike a few other pre-loaded apps on iOS such as GarageBand, iMovie, Pages, and Keynote.

In case, Safari is missing from your iPhone then you might be looking to reinstall it. Well, you can’t reinstall Safari on iPhone because the app is already there on your iPhone or iPad. Moreover, you cannot update Safari from the App Store as it updates automatically when there is an iOS update.

That said if you can’t find Safari on your iOS device then you shouldn’t worry. The app is intact on your iPhone with all the settings and data including browsing data and logins. Possibly, Safari isn’t appearing just because you accidentally removed it from your home screen, moved it to an app folder, or disabled the app at some point in time.

Thankfully, you can easily add Safari back to the home screen and access it like before. Let’s find out how to restore Safari icon on iPhone running iOS 14 .

Thank you! There were many other sites whose only solution was to reset the home screen which, apparently, reverts it to factory settings! I did not want that. Your solution to restore the (in my case) Safari icon was fast, easy, and accurate! I knew there had to be a better way! Thank you, again!

How to Add Safari Website Shortcuts to iPad's Home Screen

For iPads running iOS 7 and above

add to home screen on safari

What to Know

  • Open Safari > go to web page you want to add as Home screen icon > Share icon > Add to Home Screen .
  • Next, edit the shortcut name (optional) > select Add to save the shortcut.

This article explains how to add an iPad Home screen icon for a specific web page to serve as a shortcut to that page.Information applies to iPads with iOS 7 through iPadOS 16.

How to Add a Home Screen Icon for a Web Page

The iPad home screen displays icons for navigating through your applications and settings. Among these apps is  Safari , Apple's web browser, which is included with all its operating systems. One especially useful feature is the ability to put shortcuts to your favorite web pages on the iPad Home screen.

Making a Home screen icon for a web page that you visit frequently saves time. Here's how to do it.

Select the Safari icon to open the main browser window.

Go to the web page that you want to add as a Home screen icon. Select the  Share  button at the top or bottom of the browser window. It's represented by a square with an up arrow.

In the window that opens, scroll across or down and select  Add to Home Screen .

In the interface that opens, edit the name of the shortcut icon you are creating, if needed. This step is optional, but a short name is best. It represents the title that displays on the Home screen under the icon.

Select  Add to save the shortcut.

Your iPad's Home screen now contains an icon that takes you directly to your chosen web page.

If you have multiple home screens, it may appear on a screen that isn't filled.

You can move the shortcut and organize it like any other app icon. When you no longer need it, delete it in the same way that you would delete apps from the iPad .

Safari 101 : How to Save a Website or Webpage to Your Home Screen for Instant Access

How to Save a Website or Webpage to Your Home Screen for Instant Access

The internet is full of fun, cool, and interesting websites. Bookmarks and favorites can help keep your favorite pages on hand, but they aren't the most convenient method. In iOS, Apple lets you save whatever webpages that you want to the home screen, so you'll have as easy access to them just as you do apps on your iPhone.

This feature is just about as old as the iPhone itself. However, it isn't super obvious, so even the seasoned iPhone owner might not know about this trick. Once you've learned, however, saving webpages to your home screen is quick and easy, and will make returning to those links again and again even faster. This is most important for websites you visit frequently that have no dedicated iOS app.

Saving a Webpage

To begin, launch Safari and load up any webpage you want to save. Make sure the Safari tools are visible, so either scroll up on the webpage or tap the top bar to make them appear if they're not already. Next, tap the share button at the bottom (or top if you're in landscape mode). Look at the bottom row of activities in the share sheet, then swipe left until you see "Add to Home Screen," and tap on it.

On the next page, everything should be filled out for you already. You will see an icon preview of what the saved webpage will look like on your home screen, taken from the website's favicon , and Apple will default to using the website's name, plus possibly its tagline, for the new "app" name. You can change the title to whatever you want, however, you'll want to to keep it short and sweet to avoid any irregular formatting on the home screen.

When you're finished, tap either "Done" in the keyboard or "Add" up top.

Safari 101: How to Save a Website or Webpage to Your Home Screen for Instant Access

Note that as of iOS 11.3 , some of the webpages you save may actually be progressive web apps (PWAs) that work like mini-versions of their apps in the iOS App Store, if they even have one in there. These webpages are treated more like apps that bookmarked webpages. More on that later.

Arranging & Deleting Your Saved Webpages

Your saved webpage will now appear on your home screen just like any other app. To move it somewhere else, simply tap and hold until the icons begin to shake, then drag the webpage to a new location. To delete the webpage, tap and hold again, but this time, tap the "X" icon. When prompted, tap "Delete."

Safari 101: How to Save a Website or Webpage to Your Home Screen for Instant Access

Viewing Your Webpage

When you're happy with your webpage's location, simply tap on it to open the link. The webpage will open as a new tab in Safari if it's from a regular website. If you already had the page open when you tapped on your home screen shortcut, it will promptly reload.

As for any PWAs that you added to your home screen, they should open up as their own app and not as a tab in Safari. This is the prime indicator for knowing if a webpage you saved is a PWA or not. For more information on how PWAs work and why they are nice to have, check out our roundup of cool PWA apps .

Safari 101: How to Save a Website or Webpage to Your Home Screen for Instant Access

Interestingly, there seems to be a bug where webpages saved to the home screen do not always launch in Safari. Instead, they open as their own "app," meaning that Apple still has some work to do when it comes to supporting PWAs, since iOS sometimes confuses non-PWAs and PWAs. If you experience the bug, try force-closing Safari or restarting your iPhone . Afterward, your saved webpage should open normally in Safari. If it was actually a PWA, well ... then you now know it's a PWA.

How to add a website to the home screen on iphone and android.

Put websites on your Android or iPhone home screen for quick access.

Quick Links

How to add a website to the home screen on iphone or ipad, how to add a website to the android home screen, how to make a website an app on iphone or ipad, how to make a website an app on android, key takeaways.

To add a website to the home screen on iPhone, open Safari and tap the share button. Choose "Add to Home Screen" from the menu. On Android, open Chrome, Edge, or Firefox and select "Add to Home Screen" or "Add to Phone" from the menu. The same process works for installing web apps.

Your Android phone, iPhone, or iPad home screen isn't just for apps. Whatever device you're using, you can add a website shortcut to the home screen for easy access. In some cases, you can even make the website work like an app.

On iPhone or iPad, you can only add websites to the home screen with Safari . Browsers such as Google Chrome are not able to do it.

First, open Safari and navigate to the website you'd like to add to the home screen. Tap the share button (up arrow within a square) in the toolbar.

Scroll through the share sheet and tap "Add to Home Screen." If you don't see this option, it can be added from the " Edit Actions " option at the bottom of the share sheet.

Next, you can edit the name for the home screen shortcut and tap "Add."

The website shortcut will be added to your home screen! You can move it around and put it in folders just like an app icon, but it won't appear in the App Library .

Unlike the iPhone, it's possible to add websites to the Android home screen from a variety of browsers. We'll demonstrate with Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and Mozilla Firefox.

First, open Google Chrome and navigate to the website you'd like to add to the home screen. Tap the three-dot menu icon in the top right.

Select "Add to Home Screen" from the menu.

Now you can edit the name for the home screen shortcut and tap "Add."

A pop-up from your home screen launcher will appear, and you can tap and hold to drag the icon to the home screen, or automatically add it by tapping "Add to Home Screen."

For Microsoft Edge , select the three-dot menu icon in the toolbar, then tap "Add to Phone."

With Mozilla Firefox , tap the three-dot menu icon in the toolbar, then select "Add to Home Screen."

That's it! The website shortcut app icon can be moved around and added to folders just like an app, but it won't appear in the app drawer.

Progressive web apps can be added to the iPhone and iPad home screen in the same way as regular websites, but they open in their own instance, like a native app. The process is the same as adding a website to the home screen.

Open Safari and go to the web app you'd like to place on the home screen. Tap the share button (up arrow within a square) in the toolbar.

Select "Add to Home Screen" from the share sheet. If you don't see this option, tap "Edit Actions" at the bottom of the share sheet and add it from there .

Next, change the name of the shortcut if you'd like, and tap "Add."

The web app will be added to your home screen! When you launch the web app, it will open in its own independent instance, not just a tab in Safari.

Progressive web apps on Android can be "installed" in a similar way to native apps. When you "install" a web app from the browser, it opens in its own instance like a native app. Mozilla Firefox on Android cannot install web apps.

Sometimes, a web app will tell you it can be installed. If that's the case, simply tap the "Install" button.

In Google Chrome, tap the three-dot menu icon and select "Install App."

Web apps installed from Chrome are added to the app drawer along with the home screen. They even appear in the Android share menu.

In Microsoft Edge, tap the three-dot menu icon and select "Add to Phone."

Web apps installed by Edge will only appear on the home screen, but they still open in their own instance like a native app.

For websites you access often, this is a great time-saving trick. It's right up there with in-app home screen shortcuts as an undervalued feature. As more web apps become available, there's less of a need for native apps .

If you're using a Windows 10 or Windows 11 PC, you can add website shortcuts to your taskbar . You can also pin websites as apps to your Mac's dock .

This iPhone Setting Will Make It Easy To Switch Between Pages On Safari

E ven though Safari is Apple's official browser app for its devices, you can actually change your iPhone's default web browser to a third-party option. If you do, though, you may miss out on some of the features and upgrades Apple's made to Safari over the last few years. For instance, in 2022 with iOS 16, Apple added passkeys, a more secure way of logging in to apps and service while browsing the web than standard passwords. Meanwhile, those who've recently upgraded to last year's iOS 17 can enjoy an overall faster search that provides more relevant related suggestions. The company also added a feature to lock private browsing tabs between uses.

With the imminent release of iOS 18 this fall, it can be easy to overlook iPhone features that came out long ago. For Safari, there are  little known features  like the ability to create tab groups. Apple's also added features to change the location of the Safari address bar, a setting that  initially irked iPhone users . This setting though actually unlocks a pretty useful and seemingly underutilized feature that makes it easy to page-hop on the browser app.

How To Change The Tab Bar Location

Since Apple released iOS 15 in 2021, iPhone users have had the option to pick between two address bar placements for the mobile browser's interface: the original that places the search field at the top of the screen, or a newer "tab bar" layout that places it at the bottom of the screen instead. Here's how you can make modifications to how Safari looks like on your iPhone:

  • Launch the Settings app.
  • Scroll down and go to Safari.
  • Under the Tabs section, select Single Tab to place the address bar up top. Otherwise, pick Tab Bar to have the address bar placed at the bottom.

The top tab bar option is likely what a lot of mobile browser users are accustomed to as top-of-page is often the default placement of address bars across a variety of browser apps, including those used on computers. If you want more flexibility in your use of the browser app on your iPhone though, there is merit to picking the lesser known page layout instead. Not only is it more thumb-friendly, but it adds certain browsing features that are only accessible when you do so.

Surfing Safari's Tab Bar Layout

If you opt for the bottom Tab Bar view in the Settings app, you can easily switch from one web page to another by swiping left or right on the address bar at the bottom of the screen. If you have several browser tabs open at once, you can essentially flip through them, as if you're reading a book. Meanwhile, if you choose to stick with Safari's Single Tab layout, you can only view one page at a time. You'll also need to click on the Tabs switcher icon to see all your open pages or any tab groups that you may have.

Based on testing, embracing the unconventional bottom-of-the-screen address bar placement has a few perks. It makes it more convenient to use Safari and operate your iPhone one-handed . You can quickly type in new searches or websites into the search field since it's closer to the thumb of the hand holding your device. It's also easier to scroll through your tab group carousel — that's also located at the bottom of the iPhone screen — when you hit the Tab switcher icon to view all your open tabs.

If you want to, you can send Apple feedback. They won't answer, but at least will know there is a problem or a suggestion for change. If enough people send feedback, it may get the problem/suggested change solved sooner.

Thanks a bunch for your reply. Such a simple, yet so complicated. How could Apple’s UX team make a such huge mistake in the U.I. after all the experiences they’ve gathered throughout the years. A demarcation line, or a hint should be in place in the U.I. so users know that there are more options if they swipe upwards. If there is a change in the U.I. those changes should help million of users, not vice versa. How many minutes, hours and days users globally might spend on this, rather for them to spend their energy on something more useful? ;)
