Open Recently Closed Tabs in Safari on iPhone/iPad
1. Open Safari and tap on the tabs icon at the bottom right corner.
2. Now, long press/long tap the + icon at the bottom center. Please note that you have to long press/long tap and not just a normal tap.
3. Soon, Recently Closed Tabs screen will appear. It will list all the web pages/websites you have closed a short time ago.
