How to use Safari's Reading List feature on your iPhone, iPad, and Mac

Reading List is a feature in Safari that allows you to bookmark pages you want to remember to check out or read later. The best part is that your iPhone, iPad, and Mac all support the feature and, as long as you've got iCloud enabled, you can pick up where you left off on any of your devices.

Not sure where to start? Follow along and we'll get you up and running in no time.
