How to View Your Browser History on Your iPhone
Step 1: Open Safari
To view your browser history on your iPhone, you’ll need to open the Safari app. This is the default web browser on all iPhones and iPads.
Step 2: Access the History Menu
Once you have Safari open, you’ll need to access the history menu. This can be done by pressing and holding the back arrow button on the far left hand side of the bottom tool bar. Your browser history will appear on the screen.
Step 3: Browse Your History
You’ll now be able to see a list of all the websites you’ve visited recently. The most recent websites you’ve visited will appear at the top of the list. You can scroll through the list to find a specific website you’re looking for.
Step 4: Search Your History
If you’re looking for a specific website but don’t want to scroll through the entire list, you can also use the search bar at the top of the history menu. Simply type in a keyword or website name, and Safari will show you any matching results.
Real Life Example
For example, if you’re trying to find a website you visited last week, but can’t remember the name, you can search for keywords that you remember from the website, such as “shoes” or “fashion”, and the browser will show you the websites that include that keyword.
