    Why is there no clear cache option in the Safari Settings on my iPad 2?

    I have attached (I hope) a screen capture of the problem.

    Leelai is right. Clear cookies and cached data goes too.

    I have cleared these in Safari settings. I expected this to clear the drop down list in the URL field in Safari.
    But typing eg 'w' shows a list of sites I have visited starting with this - see attached
    Was I wrong to expect this to be cleared?

    Go to your Bookmarks bar in Safari - History and clear this.

    That should do the trick, but let us know.

    In Safari I have now cleared what I understand you to mean by the bookmarks bar -see attached.
    Trying eg 'w' in the URL field still produces the same list of sites I have visited.

    That looks like the bookmarks bar. You want to clear history. Clearing history from the Safari settings should have done the same thing.

    That's it then. There is nothing else to clear. The remaining sites are in a buffer that you can not erase. They will eventually drop out as new sites are added. Mail does the same thing with email addresses.
