How to open recently closed tabs in Safari on iPhone and iPad

We’ve all done it more times than we’d like to admit, unintentionally closed a tab in Safari on iOS, and to reopen them we’ve had to tap the Bookmarks icon on the toolbar, then History, and then find the last closed tab that way. Since iOS 8, Apple has made it a little easier to get back your recently closed tabs on iOS…

This is a very little known feature in iOS, the great thing is that it works on all iPhones and iPads running at least iOS 8.

1. Tap the tab icon in Safari

2. Then hold the ‘+’ for a second or two

3. You’ll then be presented with a list of your recently closed tabs

What do you think about this cool Safari feature?
