Since the launch of iOS, it has been possible to delete browsing history in Safari on the iPad. With iOS 8, however, this feature has been improved.

All you have to do is press the little book icon at the top of Safari at the left of the address field. Press History, where you will see a list of recently visited websites.You can delete them all, or, for example, those from the past day by pressing the “Clear” at the bottom. Or you can swipe from right to left on the one hand you want to remove from the history list.

iOS 8 iPhone, iPad Safari Tips 6: You can close iCloud tabs on other devices
One of the cool things about iCloud is that you can see what websites you have open on your other devices. This makes it easy to switch between different devices without finding a particular website manually. Another advantage is that through one device you can shut down a website on another device, provided that they are logged in with the same iCloud.
This means that when sitting with your iPad in hand in the living room, you can close the website down on your iPhone located in the kitchen. Quite handy if you have borrowed your device and forgot to close some open websites. It all takes place virtually in real time.
Press the hand icon in Safari at the upper right corner. It brings to the overview of the open side of the device – and on one other device. By swipe left on one of the open iCloud tabs on another device, you can close it. However, only if the device is running iOS 8 or OS X Yosemite.
