How to clear cache of apps in iOS?
Question by Liu Han /

I have noticed that various apps on iOS (iPhone), like FB, Twitter, etc, have a cache and it keeps increasing over time.

I have tried everything & searched everywhere for a way to clear those caches, but to no avail. Only option I’ve been able to find is by uninstalling & reinstalling the app. Any other way to clear the app cache, HELP?

    Try this directly on your iPhone
    Go to Settings|General|Usage|Storage

    You will see the consumption of storage by application. Click on the apps you want to clear and you can delete associated documents and files without deleting the app. To do this, you must click on the an app and then Edit in the upper right hand corner. You will then have the option to delete files, where possible.

    This topic comes too late for me. I've deleted Facebook and Twitter apps; now I'm using browsers (Safari/Opera) to acces those services.

    Try the free program PhoneClean.

    Go to "Settings" and select "Safari". Scroll down a little, and you'll see the options for "Clear History" and "Clear Cookies and Data".
