    Hi Everyone,

    I am attempting to put specific contacts on the home screen. This is for my mothers iPhone she is not very good with technology and if it isn’t on the home screen she won’t be able to navigate to it. Any help is appreciated.

    Nothing easy, that I am aware of.

    Maybe an app out there to help with that.

    MAYBE can jimmy up a Safari URL that is maybe Javascript with simple execution of "tel:555-555-5555", at which point, can maybe put on home screen via Share Sheet.

    Kinda in the desired direction, a Shortcut. Three step shortcut, example attached. Can then put that on the home screen. Downside, will drop user back into Shortcuts app when done vs home screen.

    Favorites on the widget/Spotlight screen (aka swipe right from home)?

    It's not the home screen, but can't she set this contact as a Favorite? Then you just click the phone icon (because you want to call someone) and then the Favorites tab (which is the first tab). I definitely get some people not being any good at technology, but this seems simple enough.
