iPhone Backup Extractor provides ready access to Safari browser history data for consumers, and the Reincubate Cloud Data API provides programmatic access to this data. This data is available for both iOS and macOS systems, from real-time CloudKit data as well as from iOS and iCloud backups.

Safari browser data

Working with Safari browser data

The ricloud API makes Safari data available in an easy use JSON format. It is accessible using the browser_history module name. Here's a sample of some of that data:

    "browser_history": [{
