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.
