(Pocket-lint) - There are some great features on iPhone and Mac devices, one of which is Autofill - the ability to save contact and credit card information on Safari so you don't have to re-enter the long card number and expiry date every time you buy something on a website.

Old cards remain saved on Autofill, even when they have expired, which can lead to an unnecessarily large list of cards to select from. Don't worry though, here's how to find your saved cards on iPhone and Mac and how to delete them and clear Autofill.
