IF YOUR iPhone is running a little slow, don’t buy a new one right away.
You may just need to clear your caches to speed up your iPhone.
How can I clear the cache on an iPhone?
Depending on the type of cache you want to clear, there are several ways to do it.
Clear your Safari cache
It’s quick and easy to clear cache for Safari.
However, this will log you out of your most visited websites, so make sure your passwords are saved first.
- Open iPhone settings from your home screen.
- Scroll down to Safari and then click on the app to enter settings.
- Scroll down until you reach Clear history and website data in the “Privacy and security” section, then tap to enable.
- Tap again to confirm.
Clear your iPhone Chrome cache
The process is just as easy for Chrome on an iPhone.
- Open the Chrome app on your iPhone.
- Tap the menu in the lower-right corner of the screen, which should appear as three dots in a horizontal line.
- Click History to open a new menu.
- Then click Clear browsing data.
- Check the box for cached images and files.
- Tap Clear browsing data.
Is Clearing iPhone Cache Safe?
It is safe to clear cache on your iPhone which is temporary and provides quick access to your iPhone storage.
Web browsers and other apps store data about websites you visit regularly or actions you routinely take to improve your app experience.
If the cache where the data is stored gets too full, your device will slow down and have a higher risk of crashing.
It can be a bit of a hassle to periodically clear your cache, as some websites may require you to re-login or personalize some settings.
If you are using an app that is no longer for sale, do not use the delete option to clear the cache as it cannot be downloaded again.
How can I clear cache for third party apps?
The memory can be cleared with a cleaner app, but it’s also possible to do it yourself.
Shutting down and restarting your iPhone will free up some storage space, as will logging out of social media accounts and logging back in.
There are two ways to clear app caches, either by deleting information from each individual app or by deleting the app from your phone and reinstalling it.
In your iPhone settings, you can go to “General” and then to “iPhone Storage” to see a list of apps ordered by the storage space each takes up.
There’s no easy way to clear app caches and leave the app installed, so most people delete or download apps and then reinstall them.
If you want to keep the app installed but want to free up storage space, you can either go into each app and manually delete data and files, delete files from the Files app, or delete data from iCloud storage.
You should only delete data that you are willing to lose.
