    I spent over 2 hrs last night trying to delete my browser history in safari, how can I delete it?? The clear history option in settings is grayed out and will not function, anyone? Help?

    For me, that option is greyed out right after I've cleared history. Did you just clear your history?

    Hold the home and sleep button at the same time until you see the apple logo then try again. Tell me how that goes.

    Issue remains after a hard reset and reboot. My history is still there and notice on the bottom right that clear is greyed out (can't choose it) grrr!

    Private browsing seems to be there like before.

    I don't see the private option anywhere, in 7.0 it was on bottom left of safari tab, now it's gone and don't see it anywhere. Maybe my download was incomplete somehow? I installed about 30min after availability. Kind of disappointed that Apple would release this update w so many loose ends.

    Something doesn't seem right in one way or another on your end it would appear--it's definitely there and works on my iPhone 5.

    Interesting, thanks C DM. I will reinstall the OS in dfu and see if the option appears. If not it is definitely a bug for 5S. My device was swapped about 2 weeks ago by apple so it's hard to believe it's somehow hardware related.

    Maybe OTA update messed something up. When I did OTA, the "Send as SMS" option was missing in the iMessage settings on my phone.

    You are cheating on your spelling. Aside from that, what's it to you?

    Private browsing appears on the bottom left when you hit the tab view in Safari.

    Anitramane, no porn of course..just OCD w my data, it's crippling because it's been a daily habit for the last 3 yrs w my iphone.

    I'm sure someone will encounter this issue, I'll update you all after I reinstall OS in dfu later today

    i installed 7.1 final (after using beta 5) and I'm able to delete the browser history from within the bookmarks/history menu and the safari settings menu without an issue. i installed OTA, no issues here.

    David126: just reset your settings and it will solve the problem. It solved mine...

    Good luck.
