I'm working on an iPhone app and we are currently designing the navigation.
I'm wondering what would be the best option (and why) when it comes to going back to the previous page.
Back icon + 'back' label
Back icon only
Thanks for your help :)

Use icon + text when the back icon is on the top navbar. Here's why:
iOS uses the < symbol for Back. This takes very less real estate so having text makes sense
It may get missed when used on the top-left corner of the screen
The only scenario where you could use icon without text is when you are using it as browser actions like so
