It is best for man to be middle-wise,
Not over cunning and clever:
The fairest life is led by those
Who are deft at all they do.

Apple has reportedly stored Safari histories in the iCloud going back more than a year. Forbes quoted CEO of Russian hacking tool creator Elcomsoft, Vladimir Katalov, who said that Apple stored Safari deleted browser history for at least a year.

Apparently, Apple stored the data even after users confirmed that the browser history should be wiped from devices and servers. It seems that Apple kept a separate iCloud record titled “tombstone,” which contained deleted web visits for synching across devices.

Katalov came across the issue while looking through the Safari history on his own iPhone. He then used his company’s Phone Breaker software program to extract data from his iCloud account and found that deleted records from over a year ago were still kept. Apple calls the records “cleared.” not “deleted.”
