Genius iPhone trick lets you close all your tabs instantly without swiping for ages

by Mary Sewell

Having too many Safari tabs open on your iPhone can slow down your browsing experience.

Luckily, there’s a quick way to close them all, and you just need to follow the simple steps below.

How to close all iPhone Safari tabs at the same time

  • It’s possible (but not practical) to complete all your Safari web browser tabs by swiping them away.
  • But if you’ve got dozens of tabs open, it’ll take you age – and you’ll probably miss a few swipes too.
  • Deleting all the tabs is much quicker.
  • To close them all, first, open the Safari app.
  • Then press and hold the squares icon in the bottom right corner.
  • Two red options will pop up.
  • One will say “Close all tabs,” revealing just how many you have open.
  • The other option is just to close the tab you’re currently viewing.
  • Click to close all the tabs.
  • You’ll then be asked to confirm this.
  • Before following these steps, make sure you do actually want to close all the tabs.
  • If you want to leave it open, you’ll have to go through it individually and close the ones you don’t want.

How to re-open closed Safari tabs

  • We’ve all done it: you’re getting rid of tabs, and you accidentally bin an important one.
  • Don’t fear – there’s an easy way to make your iPhone restore any closed tab you like.
  • First, press the overlapped squares in the bottom right-hand corner of Safari.
  • Then hold down on the + icon at the bottom of your browser.
  • That will pull up a list of all the tabs you’ve closed recently, giving you a chance to restore them.
