How to Use iCloud Tabs in Safari

Mac and iOS users are able to sync their browser tabs from their desktop computer to their iPhone or iPad. All of the tabs on all devices are shown as a dropdown list.

You are be able to pick up right where you left of. If you were reading a webpage on you Mac at home, but had to go to work, you’ll be able to open Safari on your iPhone and link right back to the tab you were just viewing.

Here is how it works:

icloud has to be activated on all your devices (with the same username of course) and Safari must be selected in iCloud
