    If you're talking about the 'Google Search' feature of Safari (or whatever your default search engine is) you simply:
    1. Go to Settings App Icon
    2. Go to Safari tab
    3. clear browsing history

    Should be right as rain again!

    I tried following the instructions. But the Safari/google search feature still has all previous searches. Just typing in one letter shows all previous searches using that letter. How can I clear out google history?

    you should turn off the safari app (it should not run in the background) before clearing the three in settings.

    How do you turn off the Safari app?

    Maybe the question should be ... How do you turn off the goggle suggestion when you type in a first letter in the goggle search box.

    first, turn off safari by pressing the home button twice to show the apps in the background... safari should be amongst them... then press on the safari icon until it jiggles, then press the red circle at its upper left corner, that would turn it off.

    then do as instructed by the earlier posters...
    Go to Settings App Icon
    Go to Safari tab
    Clear history (no need to clear cookies or cache)

    Hi 88Raymond.
    Thank you for your very clear instructions. I followed them exactly, but I still have my problem ... which is, when using IPad/Safari/goggle search bar when I key in any letter, a drop down box lists words starting with this letter from previous search history.

    I am coming to the opinion that this problem cannot be fixed. Goggle developers built in an autocomplete feature and did not provide any way to turn it off.

    If anyone on this forum disagrees and knows how to turn off autocomplete, please enlighten me.
