Slow iPhone freaking you out? Have you been hacked? Forget it! Just clear Cache
Your Apple iPhone is surely a versatile device - handling all daily tasks while helping you to find all the answers online through the internet browsers present on it to even taking professional-looking images with its cameras. An iPhone has a lot to do. But that's what can make your iPhone slowdown too. Yes, we know that you may be worried about your iPhone being hacked, but the probability of that happening is low, and instead, the reason may well be the humble cache files building up in it. You see, whatever you search in Chrome, Safari, Mozilla Firefox or other Internet browsers, your cache builds up over a period of time. And clearing the cache on your iPhone helps to give a fresh start to your browser, which can speed things up fantastically fast. Whether your iPhone running on iOS 15 or the public beta of iOS 16, you can try to get rid of these piled-up cache files to make your iPhone healthy. Here's how to do it for Chrome, Safari and Mozilla Firefox browsers on your iPhone.

- In the app list, select Safari. Now, go to Advanced settings under Website Data.
- Then, scroll down and tap on Clear History and Website Data.

How to clear iPhone cache in Chrome

How to clear iPhone cache in Mozilla
Click the hamburger menu in the bottom right corner to open up options.

Do you know cache files are there to help you? But... Whenever you visit a site, your iPhone downloads some photos, banners or other data to make loading faster. However, over a period of time, your browser's cache will become outdated and hence it is of no use! And hence it gets piled up which makes the loading speed slower. That's why you should keep clearing the cache files with time.
