5 Tips for Using and Managing Tabs in Mobile Safari on Your iPhone

5 Tips for Using and Managing Tabs in Mobile Safari on Your iPhone

Tabs are an incredible feature of Safari that help you keep your place on the web, just like the bookmarks of yesteryear! If you’re on an iPhone or iPad, you can use up to 16 tabs at once and switch between them with ease. But did you know there are plenty of other tricks that you can use to make your browsing experience even better? Follow these five tips to make the most out of your tabs in Safari on your iPhone or iPad.

 1) Organize your tabs using folders

One way to stay organized is to create folders for different types of tabs. For example, you could have a folder for work-related tabs, one for personal tabs, and one for shopping tabs. To create a folder, simply tap and hold on a tab until it starts wiggling, then drag it on top of another tab. A new folder will be created with both tabs inside. You can also rename the folder by tapping on the name of the folder and typing in what you want to call it.

To go back to your previous page, just swipe from left to right or from right to left depending on where your most recent tab was. When done browsing, make sure that you close all open tabs by tapping the x next to each one or hitting the done button at the bottom of your screen when viewing all open tabs. The tabs you’ve closed will appear as small dots at the bottom of your home screen, so if you happen to reopen them later, you’ll know which ones are still open.

2) Close a tab by pinching it out

One way to close a tab in mobile Safari is to pinch it out with your fingers. To do this, place your thumb and index finger on either side of the tab you want to close. Then, press and hold the tab while you slide your fingers together. The tab will close and you’ll be taken back to the previous page.

If you have multiple tabs open, you can also close them all at once by pinch out with two fingers. Place your thumb and index finger on either side of the screen and slide them together. All of your tabs will close and you’ll be taken to the home screen.

You can also manage your tabs by long pressing on the tab button. A menu bar will appear that shows how many tabs are open. Tap on the number to jump straight to that tab or swipe left or right until you find the one you’re looking for.

You can also edit the name of a tab if you decide that it no longer fits what’s inside. Tap on Edit and then tap on the text field next to the name of your current tab. Type over what’s there with something new, then tap Done when finished editing.

Finally, feel free to bookmark any sites that you might like to visit again later so they’re always easy to access!

 3) Close all but the current tab by double tapping the button at the bottom

If you’re like me, you’re constantly opening new tabs in mobile Safari on your iPhone. And if you’re also like me, those tabs can quickly get out of control! But there’s no need to worry – with a little bit of organization, it’s easy to keep your tabs under control. Here are five tips that will help you manage the pages in your tab list:

1) Close all but the current tab by double tapping the button at the bottom.

2) Tap and hold an open tab to reorder them (or use drag and drop).

3) Use three fingers or a two-finger swipe to close all but one of your open tabs.

4) Reopen closed tabs by tapping and holding any page on the page list (the left side). You’ll see that page is highlighted in blue – just tap Open when prompted.

5) Clear all closed tabs from memory by pressing the Clear All button at the top right corner of your screen (next to Mail).

4) View all open sites by swiping up from the bottom

Do you ever feel like you have too many tabs open in Safari on your iPhone? If so, you’re not alone. With the release of iOS 13, Apple finally gave us the ability to view all of our open tabs at once. Here’s how First, swipe up from the bottom of your screen to see all open sites.

You can then close individual tabs by swiping left or right across a tab (similar to closing apps). You can also reopen a closed tab by tapping on it. Finally, if you need a new tab, just tap New Tab in the upper-right corner of the screen and choose which site you want to visit next!

 5) Get back to where you were previously by tapping your avatar

It can be easy to get lost in a sea of tabs when you’re browsing the web on your iPhone. But there are a few things you can do to make using and managing tabs a little easier. First, know that if you want to go back to where you were previously, just tap your avatar icon in the top-left corner. You’ll then see a list of all the tabs that are open and just tap one of them to go back. Second, close tabs by swiping right over them: Swipe right over any tab that’s open and it will close immediately.

Keep in mind that this also includes your current tab! To avoid accidentally closing the tab you’re working on, hold down before you swipe. Finally, keep tabs organized by grouping them together: If you have a number of tabs open at once, it might be helpful to group some of them together so they’re easier to manage. Just drag one tab onto another and they’ll create their own group with an arrow as a separator between each.

Grouping your open tabs also makes it easier to find what you need quickly when they all appear together alphabetically rather than being mixed up with other tabs. The only downside is that you won’t be able to access any of the content within those grouped tabs until you scroll past them – but remember,

they’re grouped together because they don’t matter as much. And finally, when opening new tabs from search results or bookmarks, drag and drop it into an existing group or separate window: Dragging and dropping opens up a new window for you to work in instead of having two open windows with different content taking up space. Plus, now you can easily switch between windows without losing your place in either – though scrolling can still get a bit confusing.
