When using Safari on iOS tap on a link with two fingers to open in a new tab (or alternatively with an extra step you can also long press then choose open in a new tab).
iOS SAFARI TIP:— Dark Mode Dave (@davemark) April 16, 2018
Ran into this on Reddit this morning:
- Open a Safari page
- If you tap a link, you’ll slide over to the new page in the same tab (normal behavior)
- If you tap the link with two fingers, you’ll instantly open the page in a new tab
