How to Add a Website Shortcut to iPhone or iPad Home Screen


Hey everyone. I’m Max Dalton, and in this video I’ll show
you how to add a website shortcut to your iPhone or iPad home screen. Apple makes it possible to create website
shortcuts on your iPhone or iPad home screen that look just like all of your other apps. When you tap these shortcut links, they open
to the associated website in Safari. Now let’s walk through the steps to add a
website shortcut to your iPhone or iPad home screen. Step 1. Tap to open the Safari app on your iPhone
or iPad, and then navigate to the website you want to create a shortcut for. Step 2. Tap the “Send To” icon along the bottom of
the screen. The Send To icon features a box with an upward-pointing
arrow on it. A menu flys up from the bottom of the screen. Step 3. Swipe up on the menu to expand it, and then
tap “Add to Home Screen.” The Add to Home Screen screen appears. Step 4. The icon that will appear on your home screen,
a name for the website shortcut, and the URL will automatically populate. While you can’t edit the icon or the URL,
you can tap to change the name of the website shortcut icon. Tap “Add” after making any changes. Safari will close and you’ll be taken to your
iPhone or iPad home screen, where you’ll see your newly-created shortcut icon has been
added. Now, going forward, when you tap the website
shortcut icon, Safari will open to the website associated with that shortcut. Let me know what iPhone or iPad model you’re
