Do you know that you can group all of your frequently visited websites on the Safari browser to a customized folder under the default Favorites Folder? In this guide, I will explain to you the steps to create a custom Favorites folder in the iPhone Safari browser and store the icons of the websites that you access multiple times in a day.

When you want to access multiple websites in a session, instead of typing their URL or searching them in the bookmarks, simply access the custom favorites folder and tap on the icon of the respective website to open it.
