Close a Website Tab in Safari on iPhone


How to Close a Single Tab in Safari on iPhone

First, open the Safari app. While viewing any page, tap the tabs button (two overlapping rounded squares) in the lower-right corner of the screen.

(In iOS 15 or higher, if your address bar is at the bottom of the screen, you can also swipe upward on the address bar to see a list of open browser tabs.)

Tap the "tabs" button in Safari on iPhone.

After tapping the tabs button, you’ll see a list of your currently open website tabs with a thumbnail preview for each. To close a website (tab), tap the small “X” button in the upper-left corner (iOS 14 and earlier) or upper-right corner (iOS 15 or later) of the site’s thumbnail.

Tap the "X" on the thumbnail to close the tab.

Repeat this with any other tabs you’d like to close. In iOS 15 or later, you can also quickly swipe the thumbnails to the left to close them.

How to Close All Safari Tabs at Once

If you need to close many Safari tabs (even dozens or hundreds of them) and you don’t want to tediously tap or swipe through them one at a time, you can quickly close them all at once.

To do so, press and hold the tabs button (the two overlapping squares) until a menu pops up. In the menu, select “Close All Tabs.”

Tap "Close All Tabs."

A confirmation message will pop up. Tap “Close All Tabs” again, and all your tabs will disappear.

If you’ve made a mistake and closed something important, hold down the plus (“+”) button at the bottom of the screen. You’ll see a “Recently Closed Tabs” list that you can use to re-open the tabs you need. Happy browsing!
