iPhones gradually become slow. You should clear the cache of your iPhone to make the phone fast again. The question is, how to clear the cache of iPhones?

If your iPhone becomes slow, then you don’t have to rush for a new phone. You can restore the speed by clearing the cache memory of all browsers. Browser cache is the most necessary cache to clear. Let’s talk about this.

When you visit a website on your iPhone, your phone downloads data to show you. This process can be slower or faster depends upon your internet connection. To make this process efficient, a web browser stores some of the downloaded information into the cache memory of your phone. As a result, when you visit that website again, it loads faster than before. For instance, we can say that you bought drinks more than you need and store them in the fridge. So, when you need a drink, you don’t have to go to the market again. A cache is the “fridge.“ But if you put too many drinks in the fridge for later use, then if there will be space for other things or not? Your answer will be no. The best idea is to just keep those drinks which you will need in 3 – 4 days.

Browser keeps storing more and more cache and it became outdated for you. Old cache brings you no benefit. It is better to clear that.
