Bookmarks are a helpful way to save sites that you like to visit. By creating a bookmark, you make it much easier to find a site that you have browsed previously.

But as you create more and more bookmarks, it can become difficult to scroll through all of them to find the one that you are looking for.

One way to manage this issue is by creating bookmark folders, and saving sites to the correct location. This provides a nice level of organization that can make your bookmarking a lot more efficient.

Creating bookmarks on your iPhone is a similar process to sending someone a link to a Web page, or posting a link on social media.

Once you have created a bookmark, you can navigate to it by opening the Bookmarks menu at the bottom of the screen in Safari, then you can open the folder where you placed the bookmark to visit the page.

Our tutorial above has shown you how to bookmark on iPhone, as well as create a bookmark folder in the Safari browser on your iPhone.
