How To Close All Safari Tabs Automatically on iPhone

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 14 or below automatically.

You will see a new popup when you try to close all Safari tabs in iOS 17 or iPadOS 17 or below on iPhone and iPad (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.
