  1. Open the apps drawer
  2. Go to “Settings
  3. Switch to “List view” if necessary
  4. Scroll to “Device” and tap “Storage

  6. Tap “Cached data” > “OK
  7. Wait for the cache to be cleared, and once done, the storage screen will refresh showing the new amount of cached data (it should be much lower)
