Additional Information

If you do not want to close all of your tabs, you must do it separately.

To do so, launch Safari, tap the Tabs icon, and then tap the small X in the corner of the tabs you want to shut.

It’s worth noting that closing all of your tabs will not remove them from your history.

Go to Settings > Safari > Clear History and Browsing Data > Clear History and Data to erase your Safari history, cache, and browsing data.

You can also use the Private Browsing Mode, which you can access by hitting the Tabs button in the Safari browser and then selecting the Private option from the dropdown menu at the bottom-center of the screen.

It can also be time-consuming to shut each tab separately, so knowing how to close all iPhone 14 tabs with the techniques above can make this a lot easier.
