Description

This video will show you how to manage your tabs in Safari better by automatically closing unused tabs after 24 hours, a week or even a month. No more opening Safari and being swamped with hundreds of tabs that you’ve forgotten about! A really Quick Tip to make your experience using iPadOS and iOS even better.

Transcript

In Safari, it is very easy to have many tabs open, and over time, you just seem to accumulate more and more. One of the cool new features, which hasn’t been talked about much in iOS 13 and iPadOS, is the ability to close these tabs automatically after a period of time. To access this, go to the Settings app and then scroll down until you reach Safari. Scroll down to where it says ‘Close Tabs’, and tap on here. You’ll see you can choose to have tabs closed automatically after a day, a week, or a month. Head back from here, and I’ll show you one more tip quickly. Just above that setting is one which allows you to ‘Show Icons in Tabs’. If you turn that on and head back to Safari, you’ll see the little favicon at the top of each of your tabs, which helps them stand out a bit if you’ve got multiple tabs open.
