Maybe you’re doing some research, you have a number of different websites open that are in a tab group. You would like to add those to a note, or we can easily do this with Safari on the iPhone. Let’s see how we copy tab groups on the iPhone. Let’s go to my iPhone.
So I’m in Safari here and I have a number of different websites open up in a tab group. Now, if you’re not familiar with tab groups, let’s go ahead and open up all of my tabs here, I tap on this. If you’re not familiar with tab groups, what we can do is group all of these tabs here, you can see I have four tabs, all of these tabs here are grouped together in a Work tab group. I have another tab group. I’m going to tap on Work here. I can go over to News. These are going to be all of the websites that pertain to news. So that’s the basics of what a tab group is. It’s a way that you can group specific websites together.
Now, as I mentioned in the introduction, what we’re also able to do with these tab groups is copy all of the URLs from a specific tab group and paste them into another document, such as the Notes app. The way that we do that is by tapping on our tab group down here at the bottom. From here, I can select from my different tab groups, but instead of just selecting one, what I do is I tap and hold on the group that I want to copy. So let’s say I wanted to copy all of the websites that are in my Work tab group. If I tap and hold or long press on it, I get an option to where I can copy those links.
When I tap on this, it’ll copy all of the websites that are in that specific tab group. I have four websites and my Work tab group. So it just copied all four of those websites. Now, what I can do is I can paste those into another app, such as my Notes app. Lets sayI was doing research. I want to add those websites to a note. Well, let’s open up my Notes app and see how this works. I swipe up from the bottom here and now I’m going to swipe over, and go over to my Notes app. Let’s create a new note. I just go down to the bottom here and tap on the new note.
And now all I have to do is just paste what I copied when I paste, I’m going to tap on here to paste it. We tap on paste. You’re going to see I have my four websites and they are my Work tab group.
So if you have a number of websites open up in a specific tab, what you can also do is copy all of those websites. All of the links to those websites, all you have to do is just tap on the tab icon in the lower right hand corner, to where youcan see all of your tabs in a specific group, and then tap on the group down at the bottom. When you tap on that and then long press on any one of the groups, you’re going to have an option to copy all of the links, just copy all of the links. It’ll copy all of the websites from that specific tab group that you long pressed on, and then you can paste it into another document.
So that’s how you can copy all of the websites from a specific tab group on the iPhone.
