    I somehow lost the history from my Google searches. This happened at the same time a "reminder" tab appeared on the Google screen. Can I retrieve that lost data from that which is backed up on iCloud! and if so, how?

    If you used Safari to search, and didn't yet delete the history there, you can see the sites you visited in Settings - Safari - Advanced - Website Data. Afaik this doesn't show Google search pages, though.

    The browser is synced between devices through iCloud. It isn't backed up, which means: if you lost the browser history, you can't retrieve it through a backup. You could try recovery software, if you have access to a computer.
