iOS 5: Quickly reopen recently closed tabs in mobile Safari on iPad iOS devices
In the latest version of Safari for iOS, pressing and holding the add tab [+] button will show a list of recently closed tabs. Touching one of the listed pages will open it in a new tab.

[crarko adds: I tested this, and it works as described, although it seems a bit inconsistent in how it handles the list. Closing Safari with no open tabs clears the list, but if there are tabs still open the list is maintained. Actually quitting Safari (clicking the 'X' in the multitasking bar) clears the list whether there are tabs still open or not.

Note: As mentioned in several of the comments, this only works on an iPad.]

This "mobile Safari in iOS" means "mobile Safari on the iPad", right?

Because it doesn't work this way on my iPhone with iOS 5.

Must be iPad only. Mobile Safari on my iPhone 4 with iOS 5.0.1 doesn't even have a +-button to open a new tab. Let alone a list of recently closed tabs.

The hint says iPhone, but it really seems to be iPad only.

It says iOS, not iPhone

iOS relates to the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. This hint may be used with an iPad, but not the other two. This is why the hint should refer to the iPad only, and not refer to iOS, which applies to two items to which this hint is not applicable.

Nope, there's an icon that says "iPhone" right at the top of the hint, and has the icon of an iPhone, but the hint doesn't apply to iPhones.
