6 Swipe to Close
It has been forever ingrained in us that hitting the ‘X’ option is the way to close a window or tab. But iOS has also included a gesture that makes it easy (and possibly more fun) to close a tab in Safari.
- Press the Tabs button in the lower left corner of the Safari app.
- Locate the tab you would like to close.
- Swipe the tab to the left to close it.
