How many Safari history entries are kept on iPads until automatically deleted?
(Not sure if this depends on iPad model or version of iOS…)

  • On iOS 5 (and maybe 6), the limit is a strict 1 week.
  • On iOS 7 and later, the limit is around 1 week depending on iCloud sync status.

It is currently not possible to increase this limit for Safari:

  • What about iOS 8 and 9? Now, on iOS 8, the limit is around 1 month, but not exactly. I want to know the exact limit. Besides, Apple told me about a limit of 4000 entries, if I remember correctly. – Nicolas Barbulesco Feb 29 '16 at 7:47
  • What about iOS 11? – Nicolas Barbulesco Jan 21 '18 at 13:02
