If you long-press Safari’s bookmark, new tab, and navigation buttons, you’ll get quick access to various menus and features:
- New tab – recently closed tabs
- Bookmarks – add bookmark, add to Reading List, add to Shared Links
- Back/forward buttons – a list of all pages you’ve visited in that tab, allowing you to quickly skip back to one of them
This works on both iPad and iPhone, though for obvious reasons some of these buttons and their menus are more easy to access on iPad.
