I love the bookmark bar feature in Safari as well as other browsers. It just makes getting to your favorite sites that much easier. One thing I noticed when I first got my iPad and used it to surf the web was that I was missing my bookmark bar. Then after some simple searching I found that Apple had made it really easy to get my bookmark bar from Safari on my Mac to Safari on my iPad. Let me show you how.
The first thing you want to do is make sure you have all your bookmarks you want to transfer over on your bookmark bar in Safari. Unfortunately, you cannot do this method in any other browser. I would hope Apple at some point will let a user pick their specific browser bookmark bar. I personally like to use Chrome, so I had to make sure I had all my bookmark bar items from Chrome onto my bookmark bar in Safari first.
Once all the bookmarks that I want are in my bookmark bar in Safari, then I need to sync my iPad to my computer. When you get into iTunes, click on your iPad, then click on info.
Then you are going to want to scroll down until you see the “Other” heading. Then you are going to want to click on “Sync Safari Bookmarks”. Once you do this, you are going to want to sync your iPad to iTunes again.
Once this is done, you should now be able to get your bookmark bar on Safari on your iPad. If for some reason you don’t see it, go to your iPad and click on “Settings”. Then scroll down to “Safari” and click on that. You will then see “Always Show Bookmarks Bar”. Make sure that it is switched to “On”. This should then make it work.
