“Hi, I have just updated my iPhone 5 and iPad with iOS 8.2 and safari stopped working on both! I deleted and cleared the history, reset all the settings, restarted the devices and nothing helped. I’m beyond being upset! Anyone has a solution? thank you very much. iPhone 5s, iOS 8.2”
Some users found that their safari browser no longer works well after update to iOS 8.2. If you lost some safari bookmarks and you want to get them back, you can use iFonebox to do that for iFonebox can extract safari bookmarks from your iTunes or iCloud backup files. But here, how to fix: safari doesn’t work after update to iOS 8.2? I found some solutions to help solve this problem.
The first method is to try cleaning all web data. It is not ideal as it will clear history, cookies and other browsing data, but this method does work for some users.
- Go to Settings app
- Scroll down and tap on Safari.
- Then tap on Clear History and Website Data.
- You will get an prompt informing you that clearing will remove history, cookies and browsing data. Tap on Clear History and Data.
- Double press on the Home button to access the app switcher, and swipe up on the Safari preview to kill the app running in the background. You can also reboot your iOS device.
This is the first method I recommend to you. Of course, if this method doesn’t work for you, you can try the second method: reset and restore your iPhone or iPad. Resetting a device is not fun, but there are reports this can work to resolve broken Safari issues.
That’s it. This two methods should help to solve the safari problem.
