As of Safari 15, Apple’s browser now has a hidden feature that allows you to copy all web addresses (URLs) from dozens of open tabs. Here’s how you can copy links from multiple tabs to Mac, iPhone and iPad at the same time.
What you will need
Apple has added the new “Copy Links” feature with Safari 15 to export URLs from open tabs on iPhone, iPad and Mac. To use Safari 15, you must be running iOS 15 or iPadOS 15 (or later) on iPhone and iPad respectively. On a Mac with macOS Big Sur or later, you can retrieve the latest version of Safari using the Software Update feature from System Preferences.
How to copy tab URLs in Safari to iPhone or iPad
First, launch the Safari browser on your iPhone or iPad and open any websites whose addresses you want to copy. On an iPad, tap the tab button (four squares) or the plus button (“+”) depending on the layout of the tab bar. On an iPhone, tap the “Cards” button (overlapping squares) in the lower right corner.
All open tabs will appear as a grid of thumbnails and the number of open tabs will appear in the toolbar. Select the button “[Num] Tabs ”on the top bar (iPad) or bottom bar (iPhone), where [Num] is the number of open tabs.
In the “Tab Groups” menu that appears, tap the “Edit” button.
Then, tap the three dots in a circular button and select “Copy Links”.
All the URLs of the open tabs have now been copied to the clipboard. You can paste them into any app that can receive pasted text. After copying all the links, you can close all Safari tabs at the same time if you want.
How to copy tab URLs in Safari on Mac
Copying URLs from open tabs in Safari on Mac is simple. If you already have Safari open with multiple tabs, select the Sidebar button (looks like a rectangle with a sidebar) in the top left corner to open it.
When the sidebar menu opens, right click on the “[Num] Cards ”, where [Num] is the number of tabs currently open.
Select “Copy Links” to copy them to the clipboard. After that, feel free to click the sidebar button again to close it.
That’s all! You can paste those URLs to the clipboard in a message, email, app, or anywhere you like. Happy surfing!
