How To Clear The Cache On the Samsung Galaxy S6 And Galaxy S6 Edge

Hey there! If you own a Samsung Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge, I’ve got some handy troubleshooting solutions for you. These solutions can help you fix any bugs or software problems you might encounter on your Galaxy S6. The two best ways to solve these issues are by doing a factory reset or clearing the cache. Let me show you how to clear the cache on your Galaxy S6.
But wait, what exactly is the cache and why should you bother clearing it? Great question! The Galaxy S6 has two types of cache: app cache and system cache. The app cache is stored for each individual app and helps with smooth app switching. The system cache, on the other hand, assists the Android software as a whole. When you experience app crashes or freezing, it’s a good idea to clear the system cache to fix the problem.

How to clear the app cache on the Galaxy S6

  1. Turn on your Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge.
  2. Go to Settings > App Manager.
  3. Select the app you want to clear the cache for.
  4. Once you’ve chosen the app, find the app info screen.
  5. Look for the Clear Cache option and select it.
  6. If you want to clear the app cache for all apps, go to Settings > Storage.
  7. Select Cached Data to clear all app caches at once.

However, be careful not to choose Clear Data unless you’re okay with losing all the stored information, like usernames, passwords, game progress, and settings. Now, what if clearing the app cache doesn’t solve the problem? Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered. Try uninstalling the problematic app and restarting your device. Just remember to back up your data before resetting your Galaxy S6 to avoid any accidental loss. If the issue persists even after the reboot, it’s time to perform a system cache wipe, also known as clearing the cache partition on the Galaxy S6.

How to clear the system cache on the Galaxy S6:

  1. Turn off your Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge.
  2. Press and hold the Volume Up, Power, and Home buttons together until you see the Android logo and feel a vibration.
  3. Release the Power button but keep holding the other buttons.
  4. Use the volume buttons to scroll down and highlight Wipe Cache Partition.
  5. Press the Power button.
  6. Scroll down and select Yes, then press the Power button.
  7. Scroll to Reboot System Now and press Power.
  8. Your Galaxy S6 will restart with a cleared system cache.
