Were you aware that Safari has a limit of 500 tabs? Without slowing down your iPhone or iPad, it will remember up to 500 tabs. Of course, it won’t cache all those web pages and it can be quite difficult to manage those hundreds of tabs as well. I’m one of those people who don’t like to close tabs even with a quick shortcut (tap and hold the tab switch). It seems as if the Cupertino designers are empathizing with me as there is a new way to close Safari tabs in iOS 13 automatically.
You will see a new popup when you try to close all Safari tabs in iOS 13 or iPadOS 13 (using the tap and holding gesture on the tab switch). This will only appear when you do this for the first time. It will ask you if you want to close Safari tabs automatically in the future. Every day, every week or every month you can ask Safari to do this for you. I think the monthly timeline is the best option for most people.
How To Enable Automatically Closing Safari Tabs in iOS & iPadOS 13
- Launch the Settings app.
- Tap Safari.
- Head over to Close Tab option
- After that, you can choose the best option for you: Manually, After One Day, After One Week, and After One Month.
