How to clear cache in iPhone apps

To the question: how much memory is needed in an iPhone, many answer that the minimum amount of storage will be behind the eyes. For many years, I myself adhered to this opinion, completely wondering why people spend on 256 or 512 GB. But over the years I realized: no matter how you clean the photo gallery or delete unnecessary files, over time, the device’s memory is still clogged to capacity and the phone starts to work much slower. It’s all the fault of the cache. Today I propose to figure out what it is and how to remove unnecessary information from your gadget.

What to do if your iPhone runs out of memory. First, clear the cache.

It seems to me that if you pay more than 50 thousand rubles for a smartphone, then it should work like new always and everywhere. But, unfortunately, this is not always the case. As soon as the iPhone runs out of memory, the speed of its work is no longer the same as before.

And it’s not always about a large number of photos. I recently calculated and realized that the cache from different applications took from me a total of about 15 GB of memory. Then I decided to figure it out.

How to clear cache in Telegram

The Telegram app is a real swallow of memory. When I looked at how much space it took up, there was no limit to surprise. A regular messenger weighed about 10 GB. Therefore, if your device does not have enough free space, I suggest starting with the “cart”. Moreover, this is quite simple to do:

  • Open the Telegram app on iPhone and go to Settings.
  • Go to the Data & Memorysection .
  • Tap on Memory Usage.
  • Select Clear Telegram Cache.

Clearing the cache in Telegram is very easy.

In addition, Pavel Durov’s team thought about their users in advance and provided us with the ability to save the cache only for a certain time. This can be done by going to Settings, then “Data and memory”, Memory usage. Here you can also adjust how long the downloaded data is stored. By the way, we thought about you too. Therefore, we recently published a selection of cool Telegram channels for you . We recommend that you look, I vouch for the quality.

The app offers the following settings: 3 days, 1 week, 1 month and Always. Here you can also set the limit: 5 GB, 16 GB, 32 GB and No. And to make surfing even easier, I suggest that you refuse to save photos on your phone or autoload media files via cellular data, allowing you to do this only with Wi-Fi turned on. Mobile traffic will only thank you for this.

How to clean whatsapp on an iPhone

We all know that WhatsApp stores all files in its internal memory. Over time, it turns out that the program takes up a significant amount of storage space on the device. Solving this problem is not as easy as in Telegram, but you can still do it:

  • First, unlock your iPhone and go to WhatsApp.
  • Next, go to the Settingsmenu by clicking on the gear on the right.
  • Go to the Data and Storagesection , then Storage . Here, opposite each of your contacts with whom you have communicated at least once, the amount of occupied space is indicated.
  • Then tap on the chats that take up a lot of space and choose the most voracious ones.
  • Next, use the Selectbutton to mark unnecessary files and delete.

Clearing the cache in WhatsApp is not a mess.

This way you can painlessly get rid of unnecessary information. There is also an option, for example, to completely delete some chats, but then the risk of losing important information increases. Be careful.

Instagram cache on iPhone

It is sad that many developers do not think about their users and do not offer easy ways to clear the cache. Maybe that’s why the author of Ivan Gerasimov long ago refused to use the insta ? On the other hand, Instagram is easy to clean. See for yourself:

  • Unlock iPhone, go to Settings.
  • We tap on the Basicsection .
  • Next, go to the iPhone Storageitem . We are looking for Instagram in the list of applications.
  • Click the Delete applicationbutton .
  • After that, open the App Store.
  • Download Instagramagain, log in.

To clear the cache on Instagram – uninstall the application.

Yes, in fact, it is simply impossible to delete the cache from the insta. You will have to uninstall the program anyway. In principle, this method will work with any other software, be sure to take note of it. The only good news is that Instagram usually doesn’t take up a lot of space. In my case, Facebook consumed only 200 MB in a year.
