Do not close them for at least a week and their number will grow exponentially, interfering with the comfortable use of the browser. But if you close the tabs manually, you are sorry, let someone do it instead of you. To do this, it is not even necessary to allow someone outside to your device, but just set up automatic closing of open tabs.

Should I close tabs in Safari
However, there is no particular need for automatic tab closing. The fact is that iOS is so effectively managing the device’s resources that it will not allow the browser to use up too much battery or RAM. As a result, even if you have 50 heavy tabs open at the same time, the only reason they should be closed is your convenience, as navigating in such a number of pages is simply uncomfortable.
