The iPhone, a multimedia communication device made by Apple, comes with Safari web browser. Safari lets you surf the web on the iPhone. When you are finished surfing the web, you can easily get back to your iPhone's home page. Any page you leave open will automatically save until the next time you open Safari.


Step 1

Click the double box icon in the lower right corner of the Safari browser. The number displayed in this icon is the number of web pages you currently have open.
