Now that there is no longer an eight tab limit in Safari, it's possible for your tabs to become unmanageable. Fortunately it's easy to move tabs or get rid of them altogether. Here's how:

Moving Tabs

In Safari, tap on the Tab icon in the lower right corner. You will now be able to scroll through all your open tabs.


To organize tabs into the order you want them, simply tap and hold on a tab. Keep holding as you move the tab up or down, letting go once the tab is where you want it to be.

Deleting Tabs

There are two ways to remove a tab:

1. Swipe the tap left off the screen

2. Tap the x icon on the top left of the tab.
