2. Rearrange or delete your favourites
Speaking of your favourite sites, you actually have more control over their appearance in Safari than you might think. For example, try this: tap the address bar to reveal your favourites, tap and hold one of the site icons, then drag the icon to rearrange it.
You can also unfavourite a site by tapping and holding its icon, then tapping the Delete button that appears. Want to rename an icon? Tap and hold it, then tap Edit. While you can’t rearrange or edit ‘frequently visited’ sites, you can (assuming you haven’t turned them off entirely) delete them one-by-one by tapping and holding an icon, then tapping Delete.
