2 Steps to Clear App Data on iPhone

Today, I'll be teaching you how you can clear your iPhone app data. These steps are totally different from how it's been done on Android phones.

Ofcourse we all know that iPhone is one of the most popular smartphones that is well recognized worldwide. However, there are things that seem hard on the device and there are some really basic problems that can befall an iPhone. For example, some iPhones tend to have low storage. One reason for that is the Other folder. Most of your iPhone app data goes there.

iOS individually detects each file type that is stored on an iPhone or iPad, then categorizes them in the Storage section in Settings. These categories include Photos, Apps, Documents, etc. any file that does not fall into these categories falls into the Other folder. The problem is, this folder collects a lot of files, so it occupies a huge amount of useful space. There are two options to clear this data. You can delete the app data, which requires you to uninstall the app and reinstall it. You can also wipe the contents of your iPhone. This would leave the apps installed, but the data will be gone.

HOW TO CLEAR APP DATA ON IPHONE DEVICE

Go to Settings > General > Usage
A list with all the installed apps would show, along with their data consumption.

Tap on an app, and the size will show, along with the app data consumption under Documents & Data.

Find the Delete App option at the bottom of the page. Tap on it, and the app along with its data will be completely deleted from the device. Now, reinstall the app from the App Store.

If you don’t want to delete your apps, you can still delete your Other folder apps. Follow these instructions:

>> First, back up your data on iCloud or anywhere else.

>> Reset your iPhone or iPad by going to Settings > General > reset. Then tap on Erase All Content and Settings. Then wait for the process to complete.

Once the process is complete, restore your data from your backup. Now, only your app data will be restored; app files and cookies will not come back, just like how it's been done on Android when you Clear Data of any App.
