Cannot Clear Browsing History in Safari on iPhone Because the Button is Grayed-out
If you have a device that is administered by your employer and has restrictive standards, or if your parent or caregiver has set up Screen Time with content restriction guidelines, iOS will not let you wipe your browser history.
