How to Clear iPhone Browser History

Safari is the default browser that comes preinstalled with all iPhones. By default, the Web browser keeps historical records of the websites you visit and images you view. The sole purpose of this is to increase the retrieval speed when you want to view the same websites again. If you prefer to keep your browsing history anonymous, clear your browsing history anytime you want.
