Change Safari Homepage On iPhone, iPad & Mac

While you may not think much about what your Homepage is on Safari, this can be the handiest way to see your favorite site first. Every time you open Safari, you can visit the website you like most right off the bat or when you hit your Home button.

To make sure you get to your favorite website quickly each day, here’s how to change your Safari Homepage on Mac, iPhone, and iPad.

Change your Safari Homepage on iPhone and iPad

Things are currently not as simple on iOS as they are on Mac. There isn’t a setting for Homepage in Safari on iPhone and iPad. But there is a workaround you can use to always open Safari with your favorite page. You’ll do this by creating a shortcut on your Home screen and here’s how.

Step 1. Open Safari on iPhone or iPad and go to the site you want to use.

Step 2. Tap the Share button at the bottom.

Step 3. Select Add to Home Screen.

Step 4. Name your shortcut and tap Add.

Now, whenever you want to open Safari to that “Homepage,” just tap your shortcut.

Note: If a website you use opens in a reader or mobile mode, you may not see your normal Safari options (tabs, bookmarks, etc.). So, use the desktop version of the site instead. Before performing the steps above select Share button > Request Desktop Site. Then, follow the instructions to add it to your Home screen.

Change your Safari Homepage on Mac

Open Safari on your Mac and then follow these steps to change your Homepage.

Step 1. Click Safari > Preferences from the menu bar.

Step 2. Choose the General tab.

Step 3. In the box next to Homepage, enter the URL of the website you want. If you are currently on that site, just click the Set Current Page button. This will change that URL for you.

Set your Homepage for new windows and tabs

By making that change above, each time you click the Home button on your toolbar or HistoryHome from the menu bar, you’ll land on that page. But you can set it up so that whenever you open a new Safari window or tab, you’ll go directly to that page too.

In the same Safari Preferences window, above Homepage, you’ll see the options for New windows open with and New tabs open with. You can click the drop-down box and choose Homepage for both or just one.
