If your iPhone or iPad is running slower than usual, it could all be necessary to clear the browser cache of this device to boost performance quickly. Any website data cache like cookies, saved login information, images, and more is stored in every browser app. This allows the next time you go to load pages more quickly and allows you to stay connected to a site even after the browser has been closed. This helps you to visit domains regularly, but many of your cache files are unnecessary. These little bits of additional data add up quickly and take a large amount of the internal storage space of your iPhone or iPad. When your device takes less space left, it will run slowly.

Clearing your browser cache will not overclock the hardware of the device suddenly, but it can help apps load more quickly and smooth iOS (or iPadOS). This will keep iOS devices running smoothly on a regular basis, especially when using the web browser. You should also first make mistakes, like sudden browser crashes, when you notice other errors. It’s time to take more drag-out actions if your device lags after you clear the cache (or caches when multiple browsers are used frequently).

The only disadvantage of clearing your browser cache is that your logins saved and any unique settings for certain pages are deleted. Each time you clear the data from your browser, you must log back into the websites you use. This is not that much of a deal, but it may be annoying – particularly for Safari users, because removal of the cache affects all iCloud-logged devices.

Although it’s annoying, clearing your cache is a simple way to improve the performance of your iOS device if it works slower than normal. Here’s how you can clear your cache on a variety of browsers—and on Android it’s like doing the same.
