iOS 10 finally removed the limit on how many tabs you can have open in Safari. Now you can open unlimited tabs. But with unlimited tabs comes unlimited clutter. And if you’re like me, you don’t clear your tabs ever, until it’s too late. And then you need to swipe 89 times. Thankfully there’s a better way. It’s a bit hidden, but it’s there.

How To Close All Open Tabs in Safari

To fastest way to do this is to open Safari and press and hold the tab view button in the bottom right.

This will bring up an option that says “Close x tabs”. Tap it and all tabs will be closed. Viola!

Alternative Way

If you’re already in the tab view and are browsing through all the open tabs, you can tap and hold the “Done” button to get the same option.
