Restore closed tabs without backup (iOS)


I accidentally closed all windows in safari and wondered if there is any way to reopen them? Some of them had been open for days so I don’t know if I can find the correct ones from history. No back up.

If your device is running with iOS 8, you can access a list of the last 5 closed tabs. This can be done by:

  1. Open Safari
  2. Press the Tabs button in the lower right corner of Safari
  3. Press and hold the + symbol for a new tab
  4. Wait for the “Recently closed tabs” window to appear. Access from there.

If the tabs don’t appear in that list, you’ll need to browse the history to retrieve them. Note that if you are using private browsing, no closed tabs (nor history, for that matter) are displayed.
