    hi
    Recently I update my iPhone to 9.3.2
    I notice that it doesn't save my history and delete it from sometimes.
    In addition, I see sometimes "cleaning.." Under the safari icon.
    How to fix this?

    What you're describing normally happens if you have low storage. How much space do you have free?

    Safari does clear caches/temp files automatically so it's not unusual to see 'cleaning' on the icon. However this normally occurs more frequently when you are low on disk space.

    With regards to losing history, I'm a little stumped there.

    Well, a complete restore is always a good nuclear option to try and iron out any software issues. If you have the patience for it, I'd definitely go ahead with that.

    Captain's discretion; either or.

    I normally just do Settings> General> Reset> Erase all content and settings.

    Update: I noticed that safari history comes and goes.
    Disappeared after closing the app and appears later (?)
    someone can check if his history is still there after closing the app?
