Create an iPhone Icon
Once you have chosen which mobile theme to use, another nice touch is to create an icon for iPhone and iPad users.

Upload that to your hosting and then add the following code between the <head> </head> tags of your site :
&amp;amp;amp;lt;link rel=&amp;amp;amp;quot;apple-touch-icon&amp;amp;amp;quot; href=&amp;amp;amp;quot;http://yourdomainhere.com/iphone-icon.png&amp;amp;amp;quot; /&amp;amp;amp;gt;
