Have you ever looked at the Tabs window in the Safari browser on your iPhone SE? If you aren’t in the habit of closing those tabs very often, then the number of open tabs can be extremely high. This is due to the fact that Safari opens new tabs for many of the links that you click in emails or other apps, plus many links that you click from Safari tabs are designed to open a new tab as well.
Navigating all of your tabs can be difficult, and can even start to slow your phone down. Manually closing individual tabs can be pretty fast, but it can also be tedious when you need to do it dozens of times. Fortunately there is a way to quickly close all of the tabs that are currently open in your iPhone SE’s Safari browser.
