Many of our preferences are fleeting and change from week-to-week based on what’s new.
Last week, you may have been checking an eBay bid over and over again.
The week before, you might have been pulling up a weather site to monitor the chance of snow.
And next week, you could be fixated on kicking your addiction to Reddit.
Safari, however, keeps your preferences rather static. Fortunately, there is a way to wipe away frequently visited web pages that no longer serve your current interests on an iPhone.
Here’s how to do it.

How to delete frequently visited web pages on an iPhone
1. Open the Safari application.
2. Tap the bottom right corner of an existing Safari page – the icon is two squares overlapping one another – and tap the “+” sign in the middle to create a new, blank Safari window.
3. Tap and hold the page you’d like to delete under “Frequently Visited.”
4. On iOS 13, a preview of the page will pop up, with a window of options in the bottom left. On iOS 12 or earlier, you’ll only see a black-and-white “Delete” option above the icon in Safari. Either way, tap “Delete.”
You can also disable frequently visited web pages entirely by going into the Safari section of Settings and toggling off “Frequently Visited Sites.”
