Discover how to easily close all tabs in Safari on your iPhone.

Learn how to easily close all your open tabs in Safari on your iPhone with this step-by-step tutorial. Discover multiple methods to close tabs, including how to keep a single tab open while closing all others and how to set your Safari browser to automatically close tabs after a certain amount of time.

First, I demonstrate how to close all tabs in Safari on an iPhone using a long press on the two squares in the lower right-hand corner of the screen. This method is perfect for users who want to close all their tabs, including the one they are currently viewing.

Next, I show you how to close a single tab by simply tapping on it. This is useful when you only want to close a specific tab without closing all the others.

In addition, I demonstrate how to keep one tab open while closing all others by long-pressing on the tab that you want to keep open and selecting “close other tabs.”

Finally, I cover how to set your Safari browser to automatically close tabs after a certain amount of time. I’ll show you how to access Safari’s settings and select the “close tabs” option to choose from three different time periods: one day, one week, and one month. This feature is especially useful for users who tend to accumulate many tabs over time and want to keep their browser neat and organized.

Keep in mind that it applies to iOS 16, but it may have different results for different versions of iOS. Thanks for watching!
