How to use tab groups in Safari on iPhone and iPad.
Are you overwhelmed by the number of tabs opened in Safari? Using the “tab groups” that come with iOS 15 and iPadOS 15, you can configure them to keep your browser nice and clean.
Similar to how tab groups work in Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge, you can group multiple tabs together and label them. It allows you to easily rediscover and drag your tabs when you need them when you randomize your perspective.

First, you’ll need to open a few tabs in Safari to use the Tabs Group feature. Next, tap the “Tabs” button in the bottom left corner.
The Open Tabs tab count will appear on the bottom bar. Tap the tab count to open the “Tab Groups” menu.
In the “Tabs Group” menu, you’ll find two options. “New empty tab group” means you will first create a tab group and then add tabs to it. If you want to create a group with open tabs, you must select “New tab group from X tabs” (X is a number).
Add a name for your new tab group and click the “Save” button.
Safari will transform you into a new tab group and show you a grid of open tabs. The tab group name appears on the bottom bar. Tap “Done” to save changes.
After creating tab groups in Safari, here are some things you can do.
Tap the “+” (plus) button to add a new tab to the tab group.
To exit the group, press the “x” cross sign at the top right of the tab preview card.
Tap the Open tab and drag it to rearrange.
Press hard on a tab, select “Sort tabs” from the long press menu and select “Sort tabs by title” or “Sort tabs by websites”.
You can always copy links from open tabs in a tab group so you can save them before closing all tabs at once.
