Over the past few days I bookmarked a whole bunch of pages at a site but the next day that my iPad 3’s Safari failed to find them. I’m pretty distressed. I see a few other people have experienced the same thing. Is Apple going to share the secret as to why, or just let us flail about in frustration? How to recover them? Any help would be appreciated!
