Apple iPhone 10: How To Clear Cache

Apple iPhone 10: How To Clear Cache

Hey there! So, when we get a brand new smartphone, it’s always super fast and snappy, right? But over time, all phones start to slow down. If you’ve noticed that your iPad or iPhone 10 is getting a bit laggy, I’m here to help you fix it. Let’s clear out some unnecessary files and free up some space to boost your iPhone 10’s performance. Don’t worry, this won’t be a regular thing.

How to Delete Safari Cache in iOS 11 (iPhone & iPad)

If you use Safari as your go-to browser, chances are it’s taking up more space than it needs to. When we clear out the Safari cache, you’ll have to log back into any websites you’re currently logged into. No big deal, though.

  1. Turn on your device and go to Settings
  2. Scroll down and tap on Safari (Between Compass & News)
  3. Scroll down and tap on “Clear History and Website Data”
  4. Tap on “Clear History and Data”

How to Offload Unused Apps on iOS 11 (iPhone & iPad)

Did you know that some apps on your phone take up a lot of space even if you rarely use them? Well, they do. But don’t worry, I’ll help you identify those space-hoggers and show you how to temporarily get rid of them. You can still save all your data and files, though. It’s called offloading apps, and it’s a nifty way to free up some space.

  1. Turn on your iPhone 10 and open the Settings app
  2. Scroll down and tap on General
  3. Tap on iPhone Storage
  4. Scroll down and you’ll see a list of apps, sorted by how much space they’re using. You’ll probably find apps like Podcast Players, Photos, Messages, and Media Players with big files.
  5. Select an app that you rarely use but takes up a lot of space. Any app over 100MB is worth looking into.
  6. Tap on the app
  7. Select “Offload App” or, if you don’t plan on reinstalling it, delete the app

When you want to use the app again, just reinstall it from the App Store. You’ll get all your data and documents back, too.

Saving Space on iPhone 10 Recommendations

Here are some cool features in iOS 11 that can help you safely free up space on your iPhone 10:

Offload Unused Apps

If you enable this feature, your phone will automatically get rid of unused apps when you’re running low on storage. It’ll still keep your documents and data, so it’s a great option if you need more space.

Delete Old Conversations Automatically on Messages

This feature deletes text messages and their attachments that you haven’t paid attention to in the past year. Yep, those attachments can take up quite a bit of space. Enabling this feature will free up that space for you. Plus, it’ll help you break the habit of hoarding videos and pictures forever.

Review Large Attachments

With this feature, you get to choose which attachments you want to delete from your phone. It gives you a list of attachments, sorted by size, so you can easily decide which ones to let go of. Just swipe left and delete the ones you don’t need.

Restart iPhone 10 to Increase Free Memory

iOS 11 does a good job of managing memory on your iPhone 10. But sometimes, your phone needs a little reboot to refresh everything. If your phone has been on for a while, it’s a good idea to restart it. Here’s how:

  1. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on the top right side of your iPhone 10
  2. Slide the slider down to power off your phone
  3. Wait for your iPhone 10 to turn off completely
  4. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button to turn your phone back on

How to Delete the App Cache on the iPhone 10

Finally, let’s talk about clearing the cache on your iCloud account. The process for clearing the cache on iCloud is a bit different from physical devices because of how iCloud storage works. If your iCloud storage is full, follow these instructions:

  1. Go to the Settings menu
  2. Tap on your name at the top of the screen
  3. Tap on iCloud
  4. Tap on Manage Storage
  5. From there, you can select an app that’s taking up too much space on iCloud

You’ll see a few options to choose from. If you click on “Delete Documents and Data” for a specific app, all the app data will be wiped from your iCloud and can’t be recovered. Take your time with this decision. If the app is important to you, don’t delete the data. But if you don’t need it anymore, go ahead and delete the app. At the bottom of the screen, you might find a section called “Documents & Data.” If there are files there, you can swipe left and delete them one by one. Just be careful and make sure you don’t need any important information like passwords, usernames, settings, game progress, files, or preferences. Remember, clearing up space on your phone won’t fix all the lag issues. Sometimes, phones just get old and show signs of age. Or there might be another underlying issue. If you’ve tried everything and your iPhone 10 is still slow, it’s time to visit the nearest Apple Store. Just remember to back up your phone before you go.
