Clear App Cache/Data:

NOTE: If an app crashes, freezes, or takes up too much storage inexplicably, you can try fixing it by clearing the app’s cache and/or data.

  1. Open “Settings
  2. Access “General
  3. Go to “Apps” and select the desired app
  4. Tap “Storage” > “Clear cache
  5. If clearing the app cache didn’t fix the issues, tap “Clear data” > “OK” (check the WARNING above)

  2. Go to “Phone Management” and tap “Storage
  3. Tap “Internal storage
  4. Wait for the phone to finish calculating the data
  5. When ready, tap “Cache data” > “Clear
