A TIKTOK tech guru highlighted two tips that make browing the web on your iPhone a doddle.
Sabrina Badin, an ex-employee at one of Apple’s U.S. stores, shared the Safari hacks in a video posted last year.
They make it easier to handle multiple tabs in the iOS version of the popular web browser.
The first trick allow you to search your Safari tabs for specific words or phrases.
It’s a handy way to find what you’re looking for if you’ve got dozens of them open at once.
To try it for yourself, open Safari and tap the button in the bottom right of your screen to display all of your tabs.
Type in a word of phrase that you want to search for. If you’re looking for an Apple webpage, for instance, then type “Apple”.
Safari will then present you with all of your tabs containing that keyword and hide those without it.
A second trick shared by Sabrina provide a quick and easy way to close all of your Safari tabs at once.
It’s a handy way to shut down dozens of tabs without wasting time by tapping to close each of them individually.
To do that, open Safari and then tap and hold the icon in the bottom right corner of your display.
From the menu that pops up, you can open a new tab or close the tab you currently have open.
You can also close all of your Safari tabs by tapping “Close All Tabs”.
It’s far from the only useful Safari trick that’s been shared to TikTok.
Last year, user @roxanna.roxi highlighted new features added to the browser via a recent software update.
Roxanna showed one Safari trick that makes it easier to view all of your open tabs across multiple devices.
Open the iOS app and tap the “tabs” button in the bottom right. The icon looks like two squares laid over the top of one another.
Safari will then show you all of your tabs as a list of pages that you can search through. Simply tap one to open it, or hit the cross in the top right to close it.
The list syncs across all of your Apple devices, meaning you can see tabs open on your Mac, iPhone or iPad in one place.
Among her other must-use tips, Roxanna revealed a way to save time while you are downloading photos.
She explained there was an easy method to move multiple photos at once – rather than dragging them individually.
Simply tap and hold an image on the Photos app or in Google images and then tap a succession of other photos that you want to move.
You can then easily move them around as a group into a folder or other new location of your choosing.
