Almost all browsers allow you to open webpages in a separate tab, including Safari in iOS. While this is a handy feature, it also means that the more tabs you open, the more memory it will consume on your iPhone.
When you have a lot of tabs open, it can be a daunting task to close them one at a time. Luckily, Safari allows you to close all tabs at once and this can save your time if you have many tabs open.
The ability to close all open tabs in Safari was introduced in iOS 10. Apart from this, iOS 10 also allows you to open an unlimited number of tabs. While this is a good thing, it also means that you should be wary of the memory it can consume.
In this tutorial, we will show you how to close all tabs at once in Safari on iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
How to Close All Tabs in Safari
- Open Safari.
- Tap and hold on the tab icon in the bottom right corner.
- This displays a menu with an option that says Close [X] Tabs. Tap on it to close all the open tabs. That’s all you need to do to close all the open tabs at once in Safari.
Alternative Method: There’s also an alternative method to this that is less convenient, but it’s good to know. When you’re in the tabs view, where you view all the open tabs, tapping and holding on the Done button will display an option for closing all the open tabs.
