Regardless of platform, internet browsers have handily added features over the years that let people recover any tabs they might’ve closed.
If you’re a Google Chrome user, you might be used to seeing your recently-closed tabs available in a dropdown menu. But with Safari, things are slightly more hidden — especially on iOS.
On Safari for iOS and Mac, you can tap/click and hold on the + icon to show a popover of Recently Closed Tabs, which shows any webpage you’ve opened and exited within a few hours.
Next time you find that you’ve swiped a window away accidentally, lost something important while closing all your tabs, or just experienced a mis-tap and didn’t mean to hit the small X on a tab in Safari for iPad, just remember to tap and hold on the new tab button to quickly bring it back.
