When the browser history of Apple devices is cleared, it remains on iCloud for up to a year and can easily be recovered, according to research by security company Elcomsoft. This is possible because the history is hidden and not actually deleted.

Yet another reason not to trust the cloud.

Elcomsoft was able to retrieve browsing history records that were more than a year old but stresses that users shouldn’t worry. If their iCloud account is properly secured with a strong password and two-factor authentication it should be impossible to gain access to their data.
If only that were true. If Apple is storing your browsing history without telling you, it’s a good bet they are selling that data to god-know-whom.
