How to clear cache on iPhone? I get this question regularly. Especially from users of the 16GB variant of the iPhone line. iPhone users become frustrated when their iPhone storage space gets full, and they can’t find a way to free up some of the space. However, hope is still on the horizon. You can clear app cache on iPhone smartphones to gain some free space. So, if your iPhone is “low-on-space” try these tips to retain a bit of storage.
Delete Safari Cache on iPhone
Firstly, we start with an easy method. Delete junk files and unwanted cache files stored in the Safari cache. However, please note that by clearing the cache, you sign out of all websites stored on Safari.
- Open the Settings app, and scroll down to the fifth group of options (with Mail at the top). Tap Safari.
- Scroll down again and tap ‘Clear History and Website Data.’
- Tap ‘Clear History and Data’.
Delete App Data on iPhone
If you use apps like Emoji keyboards, then these apps can accumulate a fair amount of junk files and other miscellaneous data. Use the Storage & iCloud Usage settings to manage these files.
- Open Settings > General > Storage & iCloud Usage.
- In the top section (Storage), tap Manage Storage.
- Select any app that has a large storage quota.
- Look for Documents & Data. If more than 500MB, delete and reinstall the app to free space.
- Select Delete App, then go to the App Store to re-download it.
Use A Cache Management App | iMyFone
iMyPhone is available for both Mac and Windows PC. Download the application to your preferred device and install it accordingly. Connect your iPhone to the computer. Be sure to select “Trust this computer” if the prompt appears. Find the “Free up space” option on iMyFone and select scan. This feature clears junk files, temporary files and application data cache. However, while the software is free, it does limit the number of time you can use that particular feature. Should you need more usage, an upgrade is in your best interest. The paid version is here.
Free Up iPhone Memory
- Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button (on the top or at the top-right of the device) until “slide to power off” appears.
- Swipe the power off slider.
- Wait until the device has fully powered down, then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button to turn on the iPhone.
Your iPhone’s OS manages the memory. However, occasionally, a simple restart is enough to free up a bit of RAM. The method works on any iPhone or iOS version. So, if those pesky emoji apps are freezing up, try a restart.
Jailbroken iPhones | Clear Cache Faster
For the rebels among us, there are several ways to free up storage space on your iOS device quickly. However, your iPhone needs jailbreak level access. Some claim it is easier to jailbreak than to remove a Netflix profile from your iPhone. Who knows? Nonetheless, two apps that allow you to clear the iPhone cache are CacheClearer and iCleaner.
In one tap/click, iCleaner deletes all cache files from several apps. To gain access to iCleaner, add the source “https://ib-soft.net” and download the app. Easy as 1,2,3. On the other hand, CacheClearer lets you clear the cache of individual apps. Once installed, a new menu option to clear cache appears in app settings. Add http://rpetri.ch/repo/ to Cydia to get the app. And, if you’re into torrents, check out Download Torrents on iOS (iPhone, iPad).
