How to Open a Recently Closed Tab in Safari on Your iOS Device
Accidentally close a browser tab in Safari on iOS and want to open it back up? There’s a simple gesture for that, which you may not know about.
All you have to do is open up the tab view in Safari and long press on the „+“ icon to get a look at all of the tabs that you’ve recently closed.
Even if you’re aware of the gesture, it’s worth a reminder that this feature exists in case someone gets ahold of your phone and checks your browser. Even if you’ve closed out a tab, it’s still going to be visible in Safari, unless you were using a private browser window or have cleared your browsing history.
