New app icons: create Home Screen web links | iOS 11 Guide

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 button (a square with an upward arrow) 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.

Share links with friends

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.
