Maybe you have been using the iPad you share with your wife to shop for an anniversary present. Maybe you are afraid your boyfriend will pick up your iPhone and see you've been looking at unsavory websites. There are plenty of good reasons to want to clear your Safari browsing history. On iPad and iPhone, it's very easy to do.
Clear only some history items
If you don't want to wipe out your entire web browsing history, you can delete just the last hour, day, or two days. You can even selectively delete individual history records.
1. In Safari, tap the Bookmarks button at the bottom of the screen. (On iPad, it's in the upper left).
