How to Clear Search History on iPhone 6s Plus

Your iPhone stores a lot of data about what you do. Usually this is used to make things easier for you, such as tracking down a website you’ve visited or finding a call you missed. If you’re worried about someone seeing something they shouldn’t, you can clear the history for the various services on your iPhone, or erase everything completely. There are many reasons as to why you want to delete your search history. No matter what reason you choose, here’s how to clear search history on iPhone 6s Plus.

Thankfully, Apple has made it relatively easy to delete your iPhone 6s Plus browser history and Google search history in Safari.
Note: Apple has made it very easy to open mobile Safari on iPhone 6s Plus in Incognito Mode, or private browsing mode. In Incognito Mode, no websites from your browsing session are saved in your Safari history nor are your Google searches.
how to clear search history on iphone 6s plus
To open up Incognito Mode, either 3D Touch click Safari open on your home screen, or if you don’t have an iPhone 6s Plus, open up Safari and then click on the tabs button located on the far right of the screen. You’ll notice a small button on left side of the screen labeled private: Click this to enable Incognito Mode.
However, if you’re just looking to delete your pre-existing iPhone 6s Plus browser history and Google search history in Safari, what you’ll first want to do is open up Safari. Then, tap the Bookmarks button, which is the button that looks like a book in the Safari menu bar. Navigate back toward the main menu by hitting the < _______ button in the top left. The button will be named whatever folder you are currently in.

Once you’ve reached the main Bookmark menu, you’ll notice that there’s a history menu option. It should have a clock icon and be the second option down. When you click on this, a button titled clear should pop up in the bottom right of the screen. Hit this to delete your iPhone 6s Plus browser history.
This should also delete your Google search history from Safari at the same time.
Alternatively, to delete your delete your iPhone 6s Plus browser history in Safari, you could go to Settings -> Safari -> Clear History and Website Data. This should also delete your iPhone 6s Plus browser history and Google search history in Safari.

I highly recommend an all-in-one iOS cleanup and tuneup utility: Tenorshare iPhone Care Pro, with which you can thoroughly delete Safari cookies on iPhone.
