How to Clear Cache on iPad in 2 Different Ways

If your app or browser is working slow on iPad, then try clearing cache to fix bugs.

The cache is a component which stores your online activity (Temporary files) to access them quicker the next time. If you are opening a webpage for the first time, your browser will store some files as cache. When you open the webpage again, it will load faster with the stored files. Like browsers, the installed apps also store files in the name of the cache. All the devices including Android, iPhone, Windows, iPad and Mac will store cache.
