  4. From the options tap the Add to Homescreen option, you can notice an icon of the website or screenshot of website added to your devices Homescreen instantly

  5. Tap the icon from Homescreen, then the Progressive Web App of your website will be loaded.

  6. You cannot see the Splash Screen with icon and background color which you set upon Manifest right now, as both are not supported upon iOS.

  7. Upon PWA navigate via some of the web pages you like, after that disconnect the internet on your iOS device and close the web app

  8. After that tap the web app icon again, you can notice that all the pages which you viewed earlier during online can be viewed and all the pages that you haven’t viewed will showed by an Offline page that you set upon the service worker.
