  1. I can’t delete them when I no longer want them! I thought you’d just hold the icon until it wiggled and then delete it like for apps but it doesn’t wiggle! Please explain how. Thanks.

      • I’m running ios7. Just to clarify, I can delete ordinary bookmarks easily from the bookmarks list but I can’t delete any webpage Home Screen bookmarks. When deleting an app from the home screen, holding it makes it wiggle. But when I hold a home screen bookmark, nothing happens except it just goes grey. This is the same on my ipad and iphone. Thanks

        • Ok. Do you know if your device has been jailbroken in the past? There are some issues with jailbroken devices where the bookmarks on the home screen cannot be deleted. There are also a couple other potential fixes. If that isn’t the case, you can also check the restrictions section in the settings. Open the settings app and go to General –> Restrictions. Make sure that there are no restrictions enabled. Finally, the other thing you can try is to Reset all settings. This won’t erase your content but it will reset all the settings. So, be sure to do a backup before hand just in case you need to restore the device from the backup. Here is how to reset all settings: open the Settings app and navigate to General –> Reset –> Reset All Settings. Once you have done this, try to delete the bookmarks again by tapping and holding on each till it wiggles. Hopefully the “x” will now appear. Let me know how it goes.

  2. I think you have solved the question of why I couldn’t delete them as I bought the phone off Ebay so could possibly have been jailbroken. Thanks for your help
