Searching your iOS Safari tabs, fast closing just the ones you find

This is a combination of two tips, both good to know, especially if you keep a lot of pages open in iOS Safari.

First, there’s this from MacRumors:

In a nutshell:

  • Tap the “show all pages icon” at the bottom right. This will show all your open tabs.
  • Pull down to reveal a “Search Tabs” field.
  • Type in the field to reduce the open pages to just those that match the search. The non-matching tabs are still open, they are just not shown in this view.

This is cool enough. But then add this tip:

Press and hold the cancel button and you’ll be prompted to close all the search-reduced tabs. This is handy.
