You can manually launch multiple pages -- similar to tabs on your desktop browser -- when using the Safari browser on your iPhone. From time to time, however, an empty page may appear -- as a result of a site that failed to load, for example, or a download that didn't initiate successfully. These extra, empty pages can be cleared from your browser's work space in a few taps.

Step 1

Tap the "Pages" icon -- which looks like two stacked squares -- to display a tab view of all open pages.

Step 2

Swipe through the page tiles and locate a blank page.

Step 3

Tap the "X" at the top left of the page or swipe the page offscreen to the left to remove it.

Step 4

Tap a page to return to normal Web browsing in Safari.
