Where Are iPhone Safari Bookmarks Stored?

IPhone Safari bookmarks are stored in the same way as MacOS Safari bookmarks, which is in a plist (property list) file called Bookmarks.plist. This file is located under Home Directory/Library/Safari and is stored on a per-user basis, meaning each user has their own bookmarks file. To access this file directly, you need to use either a third-party app or the Files app on your iPhone to access the Library folder. Once you’ve located the Bookmarks.plist file, you can view and manage your bookmarks from there.

Transferring Bookmarks from iPhone to iPhone

Yes, bookmarks can be transferred from iPhone to iPhone. When you set up iCloud for Safari, your Safari bookmarks, Reading List, Tab Groups, and open browser tabs are all stored in the cloud instead of locally on your device. This means that if you log in to iCloud and Safari on a different iPhone, all of your bookmarks will be available there as well. As long as both iPhones are set up with the same iCloud account and have Safari enabled, your bookmarks will transfer across devices.
