Although your iPhone’s connected to the internet, Safari browser sometimes has trouble loading website page regardless. When Safari doesn’t load a page properly, it leaves a blank white screen after you enter a query in the address bar.
If you have a good internet connection and Safari can’t load pages, there’s a bug in Safari that’s stopping Safari from working. The bug has caused a failure in Safari which is why it’s having problems opening pages.
Luckily, there are a few ways to fix the problem in Safari – If you haven’t already tried restarting your WIFI and your iPhone/iPad, try the steps down below.
Clear Safari Browsing History and Cache
Firstly, you’ll need to clear all the data in Safari in an attempt to get rid of any bugs that are causing pages not to load.
To clear Safari:
- Close all the open tabs
- Go to your iPhone’s Settings
- Click on Safari > Advanced > Website Data
- Remove All Website Data
- Go back to Safari and load the page again
Allow All Website in Restriction
- Go to Settings
- Tap on General > Restrictions
- Tap on Enable Restriction and enter your password
- Under Allowed Content, Click Websites

Reset Network Settings
Although your internet connection may seem strong, there may be an underlying issue with your network that’s stopping pages from loading in Safari. To fix any network issues, go to Settings > General > Reset Network Settings. After your iPhone restarts, open Safari and pages should start loading.
Resetting your network settings wipes all your network settings – this includes cellular network settings, saved Wi-Fi network settings, Wi-Fi passwords, and VPN settings.
Restart your Router
If you have tried all of the previous steps and Safari still can’t load websites properly, there may be a problem with your router.
If your iPhone has connected to WIFI, this doesn’t mean that your router is always connected to the internet.
You’ll need to restart your router or modem to reconnect to the internet or correct your internet speed.
