How to Create a Safari Home Page on Your iPhone 4S

You may have noticed that there’s no home page website on the iPhone 4S version of Safari. Instead, when you tap the Safari icon, you return to the last site you visited. However, if you want a home page, the trick is to create an icon for it. This technique is called creating a web clip of a web page. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Open the web page you want to use as your home page and tap the action icon.

  2. Tap the Add to Home Screen button.

  3. Type a name for the button.

    You can name yours My Home, as shown:

  4. Tap the Add button at the top of the screen.

    An icon that will open this page appears on your Home screen (or one of your Home screens if you have more than one).

  5. 5.Tap this new web clip icon instead of the Safari icon, and Safari opens to this page instead of the last page you visited before closing Safari.

You can even rearrange the icons so that your home page icon, instead of the Safari icon, appears in the dock (the bottom row that appears on every Home screen).
