Much like the Web browsers that you use on your laptop or desktop computer, the Safari iPad browser stores information about the websites that you visit.
This can include cookies that allow you to remain logged into a favorite store’s website, or it can be a setting that you selected that displays information in a specific way.
You can do a mass deletion of all of the cookies and site data that is being stored by Safari, but you can also choose to be a little more selective about it.
Our tutorial below will show you how to find a menu that you can use to pick and choose which website cookies you want to delete, and which ones you wish to keep.
If you are interested in deleting all of the cookies and browser data from your iPhone, then our how to clear cookies on iPhone 11 guide will show you how to do it.
