Twitter has recently updated its iOS client to add a super useful Clear Cache feature. It allows users to free up valuable disk storage on their devices by deleting cache. The feature clears the media and web cache files that are stored temporarily by Twitter for iOS in the device’s memory. Cache files stored by Twitter include photos, GIF, Vine data, web data, cookies and login information. The only drawback of clearing the cache is that user will have to download that content again in order to view it.
Clear Cache on Twitter for iPhone and iPad
- Make sure you have the latest version of Twitter app i.e version 6.73.1 or later.
- Open the app and tap on the ‘Me‘ tab. Once on the profile page tap on the Settings button with gear glyph.
- From the popup menu tap on Settings and then on ‘Data Usage‘.
- Once on the ‘Data usage‘ screen tap on ‘Media Storage‘ and then hit the ‘Clear media storage‘ option. Hit Confirm.
- Now go back and tap on ‘Web Storage‘ option. Tap on the ‘Clear all web storage‘ button and confirm.
Doing so will delete the cache data stored on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch and return the wasted storage back to you. Remember that next time you use the Twitter app it will once again start storing cache data. So in order to keep storage free you have to perform the steps above regularly.
