In Safari every time I close the app or turn off my iPhone, every tab that I have open is deleted. I have absolutely no idea how it started, and it deleted a couple important tabs.

  • And you did not bookmark them – Ruskes Sep 28 '18 at 17:28
  • I did. But that isn´t really what I was after, I just want it to stop deleting everthing everytime I close down the app. :( – EbbZilla Senpai Sep 28 '18 at 17:36
  • OK, just checking you did not loose them. So what you want is to keep the history and reload. – Ruskes Sep 28 '18 at 18:05
  • Thank you, but they´re fine! :) How do I do that? – EbbZilla Senpai Sep 28 '18 at 18:53

Did you try..

Open Safari

Press and hold the back arrow button on the far left hand side of the bottom tool bar.

Your browser history menu will appear on the screen. 

From here, you can tap on a link to open it.

  • Thank you! But I already know this and use it often because of my problem with Safari deleting everything and such. Thank you, anyways! – EbbZilla Senpai Sep 28 '18 at 18:54
  • so are the history tabs there or not – Ruskes Sep 28 '18 at 18:57
  • Well, the history is still there. But the app won´t keep any tabs open, that´s kind of the problem. – EbbZilla Senpai Sep 28 '18 at 21:34
  • That is good, so it remembers them. – Ruskes Sep 28 '18 at 22:10

This post indicates that the problem can be caused by a build-up of stored website data: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/7894860

The recommendation is to clear website data by going to Settings -> Safari -> Advanced (at the bottom) -> Website Data

Then clicking [Remove All Website Data]

The post says that this may have implications for some websites such as having to log in again.
