    Unlimited in the sense that no sane person would open 500 tabs on a mobile device. Thanks for pointing out the obvious though. :rolleyes:

    Start a class action lawsuit, and see who cares.

    Can confirm, 500 tabs is the limit (tested on an iPad Air 2).

    Is unlimited tabs even possible? I mean hardware restricts tabs to a certain number no?

    Do you know what "Unlimited" means?

    They should have said "Practically unlimited" instead. That would've left it open enough to take it as "You most likely will never actually reach the limit, but there is still technically a limit"

    Being a that this is America, someone should sue Apple for false advertisement.

    The damages suffered in this case are huge, like Donald Trump 'uge.

    One who hasn't ever learned to keep tabs clear, may find the act of deleting them sheer lunacy. I know some people who delete emails and keep history clear, though that's not the way I taught myself how to use history and emails, nor do I plan on making either of those things a habit. Though in this case, I had the habit of deleting tabs when using Safari, but asked myself what the purpose of that behavior was. After finding no compelling answer, I decided to experiment for myself and see if deleting tabs was more or less beneficial than not.

    One could argue that it takes <= the same amount of time as deleting tabs.


    You can design a video game so intense that your machine can't run it. Similarly, you can design Safari, or web browser, to have unlimited tabs. Eventually though, the machine will be unable to run it. Safari in iOS 10 is not designed with unlimited tabs. It has an artificial limit of 500 tabs, rather than the natural limit of the machine.

    TBH, I don't even know if the claim was made by Apple itself or claimed and propagated by the rumor mill. Either way, the idea of a lawsuit was not part of the intention of my post.

    lol thats me, it drives me nuts to have more than 2 tabs open at a time even though i will probably get back to the same page a few moments later again. same with email. i almost cannot sleep knowing theres an email that i dont need. its the same with iTunes, if a song or artist does not start with an capital letter it is driving me crazy
