Clear App Cache / Data:

NOTE: In case one of your applications freezes, crashes, takes up too much storage inexplicably or just doesn’t work as intended, you can try fixing these problems by clearing the app’s cache / data.

WARNING! When you clear an app’s data, all personal information stored within the app will be deleted, including save files, settings, profiles, high scores, login and credit card information etc. To avoid losing personal data, clear ONLY the cache.

  1. Open “Settings
  2. Go to the “General” tab and tap “Apps
  3. Swipe to “All” and select the desired app
  4. Tap “Clear cache
  5. If necessary, tap “Clear data” > “Yes” (read WARNING above)

Clear the Cache Partition:

NOTE: If your phone freezes, crashes, runs out of storage inexplicably or otherwise doesn’t work as intended, you can try fixing these issues by clearing the phone’s cache partition. This can yield results similar to a factory reset without losing any personal data on the phone’s internal memory.

  1. Launch “Settings
  2. Access the “General” tab
  3. Tap “Storage” and wait for the phone to calculate data
  4. Tap “Cached data” > “Yes” to clear the cache
