While Safari is Apple’s own web browser and comes preinstalled on their devices, iOS, and Mac users have other alternatives, especially popular competitors like Chrome and Firefox.
Nevertheless, Safari is a highly secure browser and also fast and easy to use. For this reason, many Apple users prefer it over the competition. It doesn’t mean it offers every feature you could have in mind though. On the other hand, Apple is always implementing new features into Safari and the launch of iOS 10 beta makes no exception.
The ability to close all tabs at once in Safari for iOS 10 is one of its new and small but exceptionally useful features. After all, everyone had a dozen or even more tabs opened at once and closing them all with one tap is a necessary option.
Before this new feature, the only way to close all tabs at once in Safari for iOS 10 was if you were using a dedicated tweak but, of course, this implied your device was jailbroken.

Luckily, if your device is running iOS 10, the system now provides the option to close all open tabs at once. Furthermore, you can now open as many tabs as you’d like, another useful capability which I’m sure many users have been eagerly awaiting.
With that said, here’s how to close all tabs at once in Safari for iOS 10.
On your iPhone or iPad open the Safari app.
Tap and hold on the tab button located in the lower-right corner of the screen.
Now, you will see a pop-up menu with the option to close all open tabs (the actual number displayed depends on the number of currently opened tabs on your device).
All you have left to do is to tap on the “Close X Tabs” option.
The same option can be reached in a different way. While on the tab view screen, tap and hold on “Done” and the “Close X Tabs” option will be displayed.
