How to Clear Safari History And Website Data iPhone and iPad

Want to keep the privacy about what you search intact? You can choose to clear Safari history and website data on your iPhone and iPad. Moreover, the cleanup will also help the web browser run a bit faster and smoother. Head over to get rid of the unwanted data from your iOS device!

To help you instantly access the websites you visit, Safari keeps a record of the history. I find it enormously helpful, as you don’t have to enter a site name every time you want to visit it. But if you don’t clear Safari history and website data on your iPhone or iPad from time to time, it might clutter the web browser.

Luckily, deleting the Safari history is pretty upfront. Hence, you won’t have to spare much time to get rid of the unwanted cache. Wish to find out how the cleanup process works? Let me walk you through the steps!
