How many tabs can be opened in Safari on iOS 7?
Older versions of iOS limited the number of open tabs in Safari to eight. All this has changed with the redesign of Safari in iOS 7. Open tabs have been optimized and a new Rolodex-inspired user interface displays up to five tabs at once when changing tabs.
While some references have stated that the number of open tabs is unlimited in iOS 7, in reality there's still a cap on open tabs. For example, iOS 7.0.3 running on the iPhone 5 is limited to 24 tabs.
24 simultaneously open Safari tabs is three times the number iOS previously allowed, and provides greater flexibility for iOS users who like to open many browser tabs at once.
