More Information

If you don’t want to close all of your tabs, then you will need to close them individually.

You can do this by opening Safari, touching the Tabs icon, then tapping the small x at the corner of the tabs that you wish to close.

Note that closing all of your tabs won’t erase them from your history.

If you want to delete your Safari history, cache, and browsing data, then you can go to Settings > Safari > Clear History and Browsing Data > Clear History and Data.

You can also try using the Private Browsing Mode, which you can access by tapping the Tabs icon in the Safari browser, then touching the dropdown menu at the bottom-center of the screen and choosing the Private option.


Closing all of your tabs at the same time in Safari on the iPhone 14 is a good thing to do periodically, especially if you have dozens of open tabs.

All of those open tabs can cause the phone to run a little slower, and it can make it difficult to find a tab that you want to use.

It can also be tedious to close each of the tabs individually, so once you know how to close all tabs on iPhone 14 with the steps above, then it can make this a lot easier.
