Steps: How to Clear Cache on iPhone

If you prefer Chrome, Safari or any other browser, it is recommended to clear the cache periodically, this will speed up your phone while browsing the web, and manage your iPhone storage to help get it up and running quickly again.

Visiting a website from your phone usually requires downloading information such as photos, banners, and other data.

To help speed up this process, most Internet browsers will store some of this data in a cache so that it is easy to retrieve.

Things become less convenient when the browser cache becomes outdated and the data being retrieved does not match the data actually used on the website, resulting in slower loading speeds and incorrect website formatting.

That's why clearing your cache can help: it gives sites a fresh start in your browser and frees up some storage space.

Note that clearing the cache will log you out of the sites you are currently logged into.

Here are step-by-step instructions on how to clear the cache on your iPhone based on the browser you are using.
