What is cache, and why should you clear it on iPhone?
The cache is a kind of intermediate data storage. If you visit a site, its content is first loaded into an intermediate storage: browser cache. And if you revisit this page after some time, then its content loads faster.
It also stores passwords in the cache, so you don’t have to type them in every time. But too much cache can slow down your smartphone. In addition to the browser, applications on your device use the cache. This is why the cache needs to be cleaned regularly.
On iPhones and iPads, passwords and visited web pages can be cached for a long time. You can clear the cache in iOS in a few simple steps – we’ll tell you exactly how.
iPhone and iPad: How to Clear Browser Cache
The most used application in statistics is the browser, so let’s start with that.
So, to clear the Safari cache, open the Preferences app, and in the Safari section, click the Clear History and Web Page Data button.
iPhone and iPad: How to Clear Cache in Apps
As a rule, other applications cannot boast of such a function, so there are two ways to clear the cache.
Connect your iPhone or iPad to your computer and sync with the iTunes app. Select your device and in the menu that appears, check the box next to “Encrypt iPhone backup.” In the adjacent box, click Create a Copy Now. Then turn off Find My iPhone on your iPhone or iPad. Now you have to click the “Restore from backup” button and wait for the finish process.
2. You can manually delete the application and download it again from the App Store. Thereby the application cache will be cleared.
