Cache is temporary data that contains a collection of activities performed by users when using applications or browsers. This data will then accumulate and be stored in the phone’s memory in line with the number of activities carried out by the user.
With the cache, users can more quickly access the desired content in applications and websites. The reason is, through data stored as cache, the phone can reload the content faster.
On the other hand, the cache will accumulate and fill the phone’s storage space along with the number of user activities. As a result, the phone memory becomes full and causes the device performance tends to be slower.
Generally, full memory on this phone occurs because the user is not aware that he has done a lot of activities on the smart device. So that the cache will accumulate and fill the smartphone storage space you have.
To overcome this, some Android phones provide a special option to clear the cache on the device. Usually, this option is accessible to the user through the device’s system settings.
Unfortunately, the special option to clear cache in this setting is not present on iPhone smart devices. This Apple-owned device is known to clear the cache on the phone automatically when it needs a lot of storage space.
However, iPhone users can also delete the cache on the device manually without using the services of additional applications. Launching from CNET (01/8), here are the steps to clear cache in browser on iPhone:
- Open the app or browser
- Select the ‘settings’ option
- Look for the ‘data settings’ option in the ‘privacy’ option
- Then select the option ‘clear history and browsing data’
Apart from these tips, iPhone users can also clear the cache by reloading the device. This ‘restart’ method can delete light temporary data such as code or programming commands that run on the iPhone.
