Accessing Recently Closed Tabs in Safari

Sometimes it’s almost too easy to accidentally close a tab in Safari on iOS, especially when you’re using an iPhone 6 Plus or iPad in landscape view. Of course, the normal browser history is okay if it’s something you’ve opened in the past little while, but many of us tend to leave tabs open in our browsers throughout the day, and sometimes even for days at a time, meaning it can be a challenge to figure out not only what you just accidentally closed, but when you first opened it.

While fans of Chrome will know that it provides an obvious way to get at your recently closed tabs via a list right in the history screen, the good news is that Apple hasn’t forgotten to include this feature in Safari either — they’ve just hidden it well. If you tap and hold on the “+” button normally used to open a new tab, a “Recently Closed Tabs” list will pop up. Tap on anything here to open it back up again in a new tab. Keep in mind that reopening an item from the “Recently Closed Tabs” list will remove it from there, but it will also be placed at the top of your browser history as if it were newly opened.
