I couldn't find an iOS Safari community so I post my question here instead.



Usually if we sync our iOS device to iTunes, back-up, transfer of new purchases and downloading 'Safari safe browsing data' automatically occurs.



But if I choose to back-up my iOS device to iCloud, will 'Safari safe browsing data' automatically download into my iOS device?

    The problem is that you are sycning using both iTunes and iCloud. That will only cause problems.


    Let iCloud do it's job.

    What I mean is, I am currently only using iTunes to backup.


    If I drop iTunes backup altogether and switch to iCloud backup, will 'Safari safe browsing data' be periodically downloaded to my iOS device?

    iCloud only syncs bookmarks.

    Actually from what I understand from using iCloud is that it not only sync bookmarks, but files too. We also have an option to back-up our iOS device to iCloud instead of iTunes.


    My question is: if I choose to back-up my iOS device to iCloud, will 'Safari Safe Browsing Data' be downloaded to my iOS device during the back-up process, or do I have the option to initiate its downloading?


    Advice from Apple staff working on iOS Safari is appreciated. Thanks.
