Can an iOS Shortcut refresh a specific Safari tab? The idea is to keep a certain webpage on my phone active so that it doesn’t hit a certain timeout feature.

1 Answer 1


Use: Safari > "Open URLs"

If the URL is already open it will refresh the existing tab instead of opening a new one.

  • Thanks very much. And I could set that shortcut to run every 25 minutes?

  • Yes - there are a number of options for automation, you can see them all in the Automation tab in the Shortcuts App. Oct 15, 2021 at 16:44
  • Thank you. I noticed you can set an action for a time but not to repeat it on a time interval, such as once every 25 minutes. Is there any workaround possible to achieve that? Thank you
