If you are an iPhone user, you will be glad to learn that you can now delete the last 15 minutes of your Google Search History immediately.

Privacy enthusiasts have welcomed the move by Google. Right now, this latest feature is only available on iOS devices, which is really odd since Google usually brings such goodies to the Android platform first.

The feature was announced in the recently concluded Google I/O event. It is an addon to the auto-delete feature. Now, you can choose between deleting your history every three, eighteen, and thirty-six months. Users now have the ability to choose the new fifteen-minute option too.
