1 Min Read

By default there is no way to clear cache on your iPhone. Android devices offers a direct method but the story is different on iOS, and in most cases, there is no need to clear cache.

Every now and then though similar to Android, Apps start acting up and they need to have the data they built up or cache cleared on iPhone.

In this guide, I’ll explain how to clear cache on anyiPhone.

Why clear cache on iPhone apps

This is particularly useful if an App on your iPhone is not working properly. It could be also that a app is crashing or malfunctioning in some way.

The main problem in these cases is built up data or cache which needs to be cleared.

How to Clear Cache iOS?

  • Head over to settings,General and then iPhone storage. Scroll down and check all apps on your phone. Tap on an App that’s having issues and notice the App Size which is the installer and theDocuments & Data which is basically the Cache of the App.
    The cache usually builds up over time and the only way to clear it would be to delete the App and install in afresh which will reset everything and so clear the cache.
    So just delete and then reboot and head over to the app store and download the app again and you’ll be ready to go.
  • Some Apps also includes an option to clear the cache build in. For instance, in TikTok, simply open the App and navigate to your profile > settings and scroll to the bottom and tap Clear cache.
    To clear cache on Safari browser, simply head over to settings > Safari and Clear History and website Data.

And that covers everything on how to clear app cache on iPhone and is the only way to do so, well until Apple ads a dedicated cache feature if they find it necessary.
