- You can automatically close tabs on your iPad with iPadOS 13 or later through the Settings app, where you can configure Safari to automatically close open tabs after a period of time, such as after a day, week, or month.
- By default, your iPad’s Safari browser never closes tabs, so you’ll probably accumulate a lot of open tabs over time.
- If you prefer, you can leave the tab control set to manual, but you’ll have to close unwanted tabs yourself.

One of the mundane inconveniences of using Safari on your iPad is that open tabs tend to accumulate. If you use Safari often, it’s likely that right now you have a veritable rat’s nest of a dozen or more tabs open in your iPad’s browser.

How to automatically close tabs on your iPad
1. Start the Settings app.
2. Tap “Safari.”
3. Tap "Close Tabs."
4. On the Close Tabs page, you can choose how frequently you want tabs to be automatically closed. You can select "After One Day," "After One Week," or "After One Month."
If you prefer, you can leave the setting on "Manually," in which case tabs will never close on their own - meaning that you will need to close unwanted tabs yourself.
