How to Backup Safari Bookmarks on iPhone X/8

By Emily Watson, Wednesday, November 08, 2017

iPhone X/8 users often use Safari to browse the internet and save useful URLs as bookmarks. It is necessary to backup Safari bookmarks and history on iPhone/iPad so that we can restore the bookmarks and browsing history when we accidentally delete or lose Safari bookmarks on the phone.

iCloud can back up Safari bookmarks, however, if you don’t use iCloud or want to backup/transfer Safari history and bookmarks to PC, there is a better backup method for you. Let me introduce two effective methods to backup Safari bookmarks on iPhone X/8 one by one.

Method 1. Backup Safari Bookmarks on iPhone X/8 via iCloud

iCloud do backup Safari bookmarks/history on iPhone X/8 by connecting a Wi-Fi network. If you are a new user of iPhone, please follow these steps to sync the safari bookmarks/history on iPhone X/8 to iCloud.

  • Tap Setting > [your name] > iCloud > Safari.

If you want to recover deleted Safari bookmarks, you can restore Safari Bookmarks:

  • Open the official website of iCloud: https://www.icloud.com.

  • Click [your name] > iCloud Settings > Advanced > Restore Bookmarks > Select an archive of bookmarks to restore.

The bookmarks will be restored to your iPhone X/8. However, if you have new bookmarks that haven’t backed up to iCloud, the new Safari bookmarks will be deleted. Also, iCloud only has 5 GB free storage space. If users use the iCloud to backup iPhone/iPad for a long time, there won’t be enough space for backup.
