When large amounts of cache memory are stored, devices can start to work slower, so it is important that the user deletes it from time to time.

The cache, according to Amazon technology, is a high-speed data storage layer that saves a subset of data, for example, applications such as Whatsapp, Instagram, Facebook, and browsers such as Safari or Google save translated information in the cache in order to reduce bandwidth usage.

Apple notes that content caching speeds up the download of software and data that users store in iCloud by saving content to local Mac computers, iOS devices, iPadOS devices, and Apple TV. However, when that saved information is a lot, it begins to affect the operation of the device.

In that sense, it is recommended that from time to time the cache be deleted. You can also block cookies, which are a piece of data that a site places on your device to remember you each time you visit the site again. To clear Safari history and cookies on iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, follow these steps.

Go to Settings > Safari and touch Clear history and data. Clearing Safari’s history, cookies, and browsing data will not change autofill information.

To clear cookies and keep history, go to Settings > Safari > Advanced > Website Data, then tap Clear All Data.

To visit sites without being recorded in the history, private browsing must be activated. When there is no history or website data to clear, the settings option turns gray.

In case you want to delete the cache of a third-party application, you can follow the steps below:

From iPhone or iPad, go to Settings > Slack. After that, go to the bottom and select the option Reset cache on the next startup. Once the box is activated, there will be nothing to worry about.

In the event that the problem pp or that option is not available, follow these steps: Go to Settings> General> iPhone Storage and search for the application in question. Select it to display the available options and then choose Delete app completely; There is no need to be scared, by doing this all the data contained will be deleted and it will only be enough to reinstall the application from the App Store to have it again.

Another way to prevent excess information from being stored is by using content blockers. These are third-party apps and extensions that allow Safari to block cookies, images, assets, pop-ups, and other content. Steps to get a content blocker:

Download a content blocking app from the App Store.

Touch Settings > Safari > Extensions.

Touch to activate one of the content blockers in the list.

You can also block all Safari cookies by selecting Settings > Safari and then turning on Block All Cookies. However, unlike cache clearing, when these are blocked, some web pages may stop working or login credentials may need to be re-enteredSome sites need them to be activated in order to browse them.
