Open Recently Closed Tabs in Safari on iPhone 6
Grimm, Courtney, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, we are going to show you how to reopen recently closed tabs in Safari, on an iPhone 6.
To begin, find the Home button
This is the circular button at the bottom center of the phone.
Give one quick press to the Home button, this will open up the Lock screen
From the Lock screen, swipe or slide across
This will bring us to the Touch ID or Passcode screen, where we need to enter in our Passcode
Alternatively, we can use our finger or thumb print on the Home button
This will take us to the Home screen of the phone
Once we are on the Home screen, we are looking for the Safari icon
This icon is a white square box, with a blue circle inside. This circle has a compass needle inside of it, one-half will be white and the other will be red. The compass needle will be pointing in the NE direction. Underneath, this icon will be labeled "Safari".
Give one tap on the Safari icon, this will open up the Safari application
In our case, we will be brought to the website we last had open which is "gnfc.ge". This is a part of the Georgian Films Studio website.
We will now tap on the series of pages, one on top of the other, located in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen
This will open up our pages area
Here we can tap on the "x", located on the top left-hand corner of each page, to close an opened page
We will close the Georgian Films Studio page that we had opened with the application.
Once we have closed that, we can now press on any other page to open it
For example, we will open the other Georgian Films Studio page on this list.
We can see the Film Studio web page, however, if we want to go back to the other page that we have recently closed, we need to tap again on the icon in the bottom right-hand corner
This icon features two pages on top of each other.
This will bring us back to our pages area
Here we will press and hold on the "+" icon, located at the bottom center of this screen
Once we have pressed and held the "+" icon, we will be on a screen titled "Recently Closed Tabs"
In this section, we now have the ability to tap on the page we have recently closed to reopen it.
Here we will tap on the title of the page we would like to reopen
In our case, we will tap on "GNFC - GEORGIAN NATIONAL FILM CEN...".
Now we will see that the page we have recently closed has been made available to us, once again
We will now attempt to close and reopen multiple pages, by first tapping on the icon in the bottom right-hand corner
This will bring us to the pages area, where we will tap on the "x" on multiple pages to close them
This "x" is located in the left-hand corner of each page. We will close the film page, the iPhone page, the other film page, a public service home page, and lastly a jobs page.
Now we can simply press and hold on the "+" in the bottom center of the screen
This will open up the "Recently Closed Tabs" section, where we will see that all of the pages we have closed will be listed
Each option listed is a page that we have just closed. Should we wish to open one of these pages, we simply need to tap on it.
In this case, we will tap on the "Georgian Film Studios" option
This will reopen the Georgian Film page
When we are finished, we can press the Home button one time
This will take us back to the Home screen, from here we can begin using our phone as we normally would
