Adding Icons to the iOS7 Home Screen on iPhone
iPhone Home Screen icons for iOS7
The process for adding icons to the iPhone’s Home Screen in iOS 7 has changed somewhat, so we thought we would quickly show you how. This allows you to get a shortcut on your Home Screen through Safari making it quick and easy to navigate to your favourite website. Read on for a step by step tutorial which shows you exactly how it’s done.
Step 1, open Safari on the iPhone iOS7 by tapping on the Safari icon, normally located on your iPhone Home Screen.
Step 2, browse to the website you wish to add a Home Screen icon for by entering the web address (URL) in the address bar.
Step 3, when the website has finished loading; select the bookmark icon located at the bottom of the screen. Choose ‘Add to Home Screen’ from the list which now overlays the browser.
Step 4, enter the name you wish to see appear underneath the icon; something short and descriptive. Tap the ‘Add’ button in the top-right corner of the screen. The website icon will now appear on your iPhone’s Home Screen.
