Guide: make custom iPhone app icons for any website | iOS 9

Did you know an app icon can be created for any website and added to the home screen?

Tap near the bottom in Safari to reveal the toolbar. Tap the share (the square with an upward arrow) icon followed by the Add to Home Screen option.


Some websites supply an icon, for others, a shot of the current view is used. Tapping the icon on your Home screen launches Safari and takes you to the website directly.

Stumbled across a web page you really want to share? Simply tap the share icon at the bottom of the screen and select from the options.
