Automatic tidying

You can configure Safari to automatically clear away open tabs when you no longer need them.

Load up the Settings app and navigate to the Safarisection. There, look for a button marked Close Tabs. By default, it’ll be set to Manually.

However, if you’re tired of having countless tabs open on your device, you can set Safari to automatically close tabs after one day, one week, or one month. It’s a useful way to keep Safari under control.
