How to delete bookmarks on iPhone

If you browse a specific website or multiple websites frequently in Safari, you can save the URLs as bookmarks. Next time, you just simply tap the bookmarks toolbar in Safari on iPhone when you need to visit the website, but don't need to input the site address over and over again. This saving much time and effort in surfing the internet instead of typing and remember web address. On the other hand, too many bookmarks also bring you trouble in looking for a certain one from even hundreds of bookmarks. Then, it is the right time to delete your bookmarks.

2. Tap Edit button located in the lower right corner.

3. Tap the red Minus sign or just left swipe the bookmark, and click Done to delete the bookmark.
