A Quicker Way To Close All Tabs in iOS Safari


iPad Safari Close All Tabs

Ever find yourself with too many tabs open in Safari on your iPad or another iOS device? They do seem to accumulate pretty quickly for me over the course of a couple days of browsing.

Well, here’s a very handy reader’s tip for closing all open tabs more quickly, without even leaving the Safari app – it’s simple to do and it goes like this:

— Tap the + button at the top right of the Safari screen to add a new tab

— On the new tab screen tap on the ‘Private’ button/word at bottom left

— You’ll get a popup dialog that asks if you want to Close All or Keep All tabs.

— Select ‘Close All’ then tap on Private again and you’ll be back to normal browsing mode with a clean slate and no tabs open.

Voila, that’s all there is to it. Big thanks to reader Joe for sending in this tip. If you know of a quicker, slicker method for closing all the tabs in Safari be sure to tell us about it in the comments.
