Even though Apple’s newest smartphones, the iPhone 14 series, are fast thanks to a next-generation mobile chipset that lets users multitask and play games with better graphics, they may still slow down over time if they get too full of apps and files.

This guide will show you how to clear the cache, history, and cookies in Safari, Chrome, and other apps on your iPhone 14, 14 Pro, and 14 Pro Max.

Should I Clear Cache on My iPhone 14?
A “cache” is a type of temporary memory storage that stores data such as previously viewed web pages or images. A website may send this data to your device while browsing to improve your browser’s efficiency.
However, if cached data is taking up your mobile device’s memory, you should clear it. After all, a website’s or app’s performance isn’t drastically affected by cached data; it just means the files must be reloaded.
Because cache data consumes storage space on your device, clearing it regularly can improve your phone’s browsing performance. You will learn how to clear the cache of Safari, Chrome, and other apps in the sections below:
