You can close all tabs by long-pressing right on the “Done” button in tab view.
You can also do this by pressing the tab view button at the bottom until the Close all tabs message appears.

Scroll down and click Safari.
Scroll down to the Tabs section again and tap on Close Tabs.
Choose whether you wish to close your tabs after a day, a week, or a month.

10. Handoff Websites
Handoff is a tool that allows you to view a website from your iPhone 12 and open it on your Mac. It’s available on all modern Macs and iPhones. You’ll notice a Safari icon on the Mac with a small iPhone icon. Click on it to open whatever website you are looking at on your iPhone. The same cloud tab interface that you use to close tabs on other devices can be used to open websites from one device to another.
11. Find out which websites are tracking you the most
Trackers are a common feature on most websites. These little scripts of code allow websites to learn about your preferences and how you interact on the site. Google Analytics allows websites to determine which content is the most popular and least popular. Although they aren’t necessarily bad, the information they provide can be used to enhance your experience. However, some people may not like them.
Safari’s new Privacy Report is one of its most useful features. It will show you how many trackers each website has and also how many trackers Safari blocked. A report showing the top trackers-laden websites can be viewed as well. How to Check Your Privacy Report
Tap the aA icon in the upper left corner of Safari.
Click on Privacy Report.
You’ll find the number of trackers Safari blocked over a given month at the top. It’s also possible to see how many trackers your websites have. Scroll down to see a list with all the trackers that you have visited.
