How to Delete Frequently Visited Sites From Safari's Start Page in iOS

In Apple's Safari browser for iPhone and iPad, every new window or tab you open automatically displays the start page, giving you convenient one-touch access to your favorite websites and any other sites you frequently visit, as well as Siri Suggestions and websites recommended to you by friends and family.

Your Frequently Visited sites appear immediately below your Favorite sites. If there's a site showing up in Frequently Visited that you'd like to delete, no problem. Simply touch and hold the site in question to reveal the start page's preview mode and contextual menu.
