Ask an Expert – Safari favorites

No time to drop into the Apple Store and ask the Genius Bar for help with your iPhone or iPad? Maybe one of our resident experts can help!

As Apple nerds, we get asked a lot of tech support questions – and some of those questions crop up time and time again. Here’s a recent query that we think will be familiar to many of you.

“How do I find the websites I’ve favorited in Safari?”

There are two ways to find your saved Favorites in Safari. The easiest is to press the Tabs button at the bottom of Safari and then the + button to open a new tab.

By default, new tabs show some of your Favorites along with Frequently visited websites and Siri suggestions. Simply tap Show More for the full list.

There’s another way to access your Favorites, but it’s a little buried in the menus. First, tap the Bookmarks button on the tab bar in Safari (the icon that looks like a book).

There are three tabs available on this next screen – again, make sure you have Bookmarks selected at the top rather than Reading List or History.

Many of the web pages you’ve saved will appear here, but for anything specifically saved to ‘Favorites’ simply tap the Favorites folder to see them all.
