    Hi, I have an Ipad 2 with safari. My husband says he went on it and he did an IOS update where the screen went black and it had a whirling circle on screen. When I went on my ipad the day after all the history had disappeared apart from the website data list ( settings-safari) which showed some websites but all with a value of 0.0 KB.

    Is it possible that doing a software update could cause this to happen? There were no adult sites etc on the website data list but also some regular sites which I visit regularly were not present on the list.

    Is this possible or is he fibbing?! Thanks for any help

    Hi and welcome to iPF!

    I'm not sure, but I think that Safari history should not be affected by a software update.
    Do you know what iOS version you had before this happened?

    In Settings - General - Software Update you'll see what iOS you use now. You won't see the update history there.

    If it helps, I've had my ipad since Xmas and don't think the software has been updated since then

    This means your software is up to date.

    6.1.3 was released in March, so your husband was right with the update.

    Yes the day after he said he had tried to do a software update I had a notification on settings to update again? So is it possible a failed update or even successful one could delete history automatically? Why were the website data all at 0.0 kb and quite a limited list?

    You must have been on iOS 6 before this update, there have been 2 other updates in-between that you ignored. Perhaps that was causing the problem. I can't tell you for sure. I hope another iPF member can help there.
