Is your iPhone’s loading speed getting progressively slower? Our first thought is that it is a couple of years old and they have launched several new models since you bought it… and there is probably a new one next week. The second thought is that your network is slow.
However, it is more likely that your iPhone is bogged down by too many useless files and app data. Clearing your iPhone’s cache can speed up your phone, free up storage space, and reduce the risk of it crashing. You can clear up space on youriPhone’s cache by manually deleting information from your individual apps and browser or by deleting and reloading apps to automatically clear the cache. Here’s an easy step-by-step process to clear your iPhone’s cache from Safari and third-party apps.
Cached data encompass all the files and images that your phone has hidden away in its memory. That includes passwords and scripts from previously visited websites that your phone keeps handy for easy access. In theory, the feature is supposed to make things easier and faster for you because your phone doesn’t have to repeatedly ask you for your passwords and other information. However, when your iPhone gets backed up with too much data, your phone’s cache can make the device run at slower speeds.
Clearing your cache can be a healthy habit to adopt to keep your phone operating at full capacity. It’s a quick and easy process that even those who aren’t iPhone-savvy can do themselves. So if your iphone is dragging, follow these simple steps;
Begin with Safari. In “Settings,” find the “Clear History and Website Data” tab to clear the cache on your Safari app. Before you begin deleting data, make sure you know your essential passwords. This process will log you out of the websites you frequent. In “Settings,” find the “Passwords & Accounts” sections and tap “Safari.” Past the toggles, you’ll see “Clear History and Website Data.” Click that. Your device will double-check that you want to clear Safari’s data, so click through the message that follows.
Now clear your iPhone’s cache for third-party apps. Check out which apps are taking up the most space on your phone in the “iPhone Storage” section of your “Settings.” As for the third-party apps that you’ve downloaded — Facebook, Instagram, Google Maps, and the like — you can manage your storage in “Settings.” In “Settings,” go to “General” and click “iPhone Storage.” In “iPhone Storage,” you’ll find a list of your apps, with the ones holding the most data at the top. If you tap any of these apps, you can see exactly how much space its “Documents & Data” is taking up.
If your device is getting full, it will offer you recommendations for what to clean up on the “iPhone Storage” page. Just tap the “Show All” button next to “Recommendations” to read the each one’s description. If you would like to take any of the recommendations, simply tap “Enable.” If you’d rather clear out space manually, then go into the app and start clearing out unnecessary files, such as old text conversations, playlists, photo albums, emails, etc.
If you have one app that’s taking up a tremendous amount of space unnecessarily, then it could be worth deleting the app and redownloading it. That’s because your social apps are storing away images and videos that you’ve already watched, and sometimes the only way to clear that cache is to just erase it and clear out a significant portion of its cached data.
To delete an app, just tap that app under the “iPhone Storage” menu and hit “Delete App” at the bottom of the page. Redownload it by going into the Apple Store and searching for it or finding it in your “My Purchases” list. If it’s a paid app, you will not have to purchase it again.
Now your iphone should be running like new again.
