A TIKTOK tech guru has highlighted two tips that will make browsing the web on your iPhone a breeze.
Sabrina Badin, a former employee at one of Apple’s US stores, shared the Safari hacks in a video released last year.
They make it easier to deal with multiple tabs in the iOS version of the popular web browser.
The first trick allows you to browse yours safari Tabs for specific words or phrases.
It’s a handy way to find what you’re looking for when you have dozens of them open at once.
To try it out for yourself, open Safari and tap the button on the bottom right of your screen to see all your tabs.
Enter a word or phrase you want to search for. For example, if you’re looking for an Apple website, type “Apple.”
Safari will then show you all your tabs that contain that keyword and hide those without it.
A second trick Sabrina shared offers a quick and easy way to close all your Safari tabs at once.
It’s a handy way to close dozens of tabs without wasting time tapping to close each of them individually.
To do this, open Safari, then tap and hold the icon in the lower-right corner of your display.
From the menu that appears, you can open a new tab or close the currently open tab.
You can also close all your Safari tabs by tapping “Close All Tabs”.
It’s far from the only useful Safari trick shared with TikTok.
Last year, user @roxanna.roxi new features highlighted added to the browser via a recent software update.
Roxanna showed a Safari trick that makes it easier to view all your open tabs across multiple devices.
Open the iOS app and tap the Tabs button at the bottom right. The icon looks like two squares placed on top of each other.
Safari will then show you all your tabs as a list of pages for you to browse. Just tap one to open it, or press the cross in the top right to close it.
The list is synced across all your Apple devices, so you can see the tabs open on your Mac, iPhone, or iPad in one place.
Among her other must-have tips, Roxanna shared how to save time when downloading photos.
She explained that there’s an easy way to move multiple photos at once—rather than dragging them one at a time.
Just tap and hold an image in the Photos app or Google Images, then tap a bunch of other photos you want to move.
You can then easily move them as a group to a folder or other new location of your choice.
