How to Transfer Chrome Tabs Between iPhone, iPad and Mac
As long as you’re signed into the same Google account in the Chrome browser for your iPhone, iPad, and Mac, you can easily transfer tabs between all your devices. Make sure the “Sync” feature is turned on.
In Chrome for Mac, click the ‘Profile’ button and make sure ‘Sync is turned on’.
On your iPhone or iPad, tap the “Menu” button and choose the “Settings” option.
Check here in ‘Sync and Google services’ if it says ‘Sync is enabled’.
This action will automatically display all open tabs and devices in your Google account. The process for transferring tabs between your iPhone, iPad and Mac depends on your device.
Transferring tabs from Chrome on Mac to your iPhone and iPad is quite easy.
Open the page you want to submit, then click the URL bar. Select the “Transfer” button here. Choose one of your devices from the drop-down list.
The tab is transferred to the device. Now open the “Chrome” app on your iPhone or iPad.
You will see a banner saying that you have received a tab from another device. It only stays here for a few seconds, and once it’s gone there’s no way to bring it back. Here, tap the “Open” button to open the tab.
Transferring a tab from iPhone or iPad to Mac (or another iPhone or iPad) is a longer process.
Open the website you want to transfer to another device and tap the “Share” button in the URL bar.
Here choose the option “Send to your devices”.
You will see all available devices. Choose your device, scroll down and tap the “Send to your device” option.
If you’ve sent the tab to your Mac, you’ll see a notification about it. Clicking on the notification will open the website in a new tab.
Once you’ve sent the tab to your iPad, you’ll see the Tab Received banner in the Chrome app. Tap the “Open” button to open the website in a new page.
How to Open Chrome Tabs from Other Apple Devices
Tab transfer is great when both devices are open and the Chrome app is running. Using the “Open Tabs” feature in the History section of Chrome, you can open tabs from your iPhone or iPad without touching them.
To use this from your Mac app, open the Chrome browser and click the “Menu” button. Go to the “History” section here. You will see tabs from all of your other devices here. Click on a website to open it.
You can also see all open tabs from a particular device in the History section of the menu (use the Chrome keyboard shortcut Command + Y). Here choose the option “Tabs from other devices” in the sidebar.
On your iPhone or iPad, you can access this feature from other devices in the tab switch. Open the “Chrome” app on your iPhone or iPad and tap the “Tabs” button.
Switch to the “Devices” tab from the top of the screen. Scroll down to see open tabs from all your other devices. Select a webpage to open it on your iPhone or iPad.
Want an easier way to organize all your open Chrome tabs on Mac? You can use the Tab Groups feature to create different groups for related tabs.
