How to Clear AutoFill Data from Safari on the iPhone 5

Typing accurately on a touch screen phone like the iPhone 5 can be tricky, especially if you need to type things like email addresses and passwords with frequency. Fortunately the Safari browser on the iPhone 5 has an AutoFill feature that can automatically fill in certain common forms on websites with information that you have used before.
