It looks like that the data older than 7 days are automatically wiped from the iphone.

What's the database that stores that data, in case one exist, so that by jailbreaking my iphone i can have direct access to it and hopefully, extract the data i need?

If i did this yesterday, i would not have had this problem... :(

You're looking for var/mobile/Library/Safari/History.plist. Try looking in that file, but I'm pretty sure Safari itself will only store the most recent seven days of data in that file, though. You'd have to make a tweak that modified Safari to extended that time frame.


Look into Ecamm's PhoneView, it can backup iPhone browser history as well as texts, voicemails, and calls.

  • Unfortunately I already tried that and it displays the same things as of the iPhone history interface.

  • Well yes, it does. Why exactly do you need your old history?
