- Tap the arrow button next to the URL bar and select “Bookmark.”
- Tap the bookmark button, and then “Edit.”
That’s it. When you have the bookmarklets set up you can instantly do a bunch of different functions directly in Safari. If you’re using Safari on your computer and have syncing enabled, you can also add them there. Head over to Digital Inspiration for the full list of bookmarklets.
