Google has released a new update that allows you to delete Google search history on iOS devices, and this is to protect the privacy of users.
The new update allows you to delete your Google search history for the previous 15 minutes, which means that you can hide what you have searched directly.
Google’s search app was automatically deleting your search history after 3 months, 18 months, or 36 months.
This update was also released exclusively for iPhone phones, and the update reaches Android phones at the end of the year, according to what the company previously said.

iPhone and new privacy updates
Apple is working hard to improve the privacy of its users, and this has caused legal and media confrontations with giant companies such as Facebook.
Since the iOS 14 update, Apple has launched new features that favor privacy and tell users what data is collected about them.
The system forced apps to request permissions to access location and phone history every time they tried to access them.
Apple will not allow companies to collect information via email messages by masking their addresses and browsing data.
Apple is launching a new subscription called icloud+ that offers more advanced privacy options like Apple’s VPN app.
This application hides your location and computer address in addition to giving you a fake email to protect you from annoying advertising campaigns.
But not all iCloud+ features will work in all countries around the world, as some countries have refused to let the feature work within their borders.
