How to Remove a Favorite from Safari on an iPhone 14: Step-by-Step Guide

Got a favorite website on Safari that you no longer visit? Want to declutter your browser and remove it from your favorites? It’s pretty easy, and I’ll guide you through the process on your iPhone 14.

Step by Step Tutorial to Remove a Favorite from Safari on an iPhone 14

Before diving into the steps, let’s understand what we’re about to do. Removing a favorite from Safari will declutter your browser and make room for new favorites. This won’t delete any data from the website itself, just the shortcut from your favorites.

Step 1: Open Safari

Open Safari on your iPhone 14.

When you open Safari, you’ll be greeted with your homepage, which includes your favorite sites. This is where we’ll start the editing process.

Step 2: Access the Bookmarks Menu

Tap the book icon at the bottom of the screen to access your bookmarks.

This book icon may look a bit small, but it’s the gateway to all your saved bookmarks and favorites.

Step 3: Navigate to Favorites

In the Bookmarks menu, tap "Favorites" to view all your saved favorite websites.

You might see different folders here if you’ve organized your bookmarks, but "Favorites" is typically at the top.

Step 4: Edit the Favorites

Tap "Edit" at the bottom-right corner of the screen.

This will allow you to modify your list of favorites, either by reordering them or removing them.

Step 5: Remove the Favorite

Find the favorite you wish to remove and tap the red minus sign, then tap "Delete."

You’ll be prompted to confirm the deletion. Once you tap "Delete," the website will no longer be in your favorites.

After completing these steps, the website you chose to remove will no longer appear in your Safari favorites. This will make your browsing experience cleaner and more tailored to your current interests.

Tips for Removing a Favorite from Safari on an iPhone 14

  • Ensure your iPhone 14’s software is up to date to avoid any glitches when managing Safari favorites.
  • Consider organizing your favorites into folders for easier management in the future.
  • If you accidentally delete a favorite, you can always re-add it by visiting the website and selecting "Add to Favorites."
