Pro Tip: Speed up your iPhone by clearing cache

If your iPhone has become a little slow, it may not mean you need to run out and get the latest iPhone. Try clearing your iPhone cache instead. This simple trick may get your iPhone back up to speed. In addition to clearing the cache, you may also want to try freeing up space on your iPhone.

Usually, visiting a website requires your phone to download and save information like photos, banners and other data in order to load that website quicker when you return. But over time, this collection of data can slow things down. That's why clearing your cache can help because it gives websites a fresh start in your browser and frees up some space in your storage.
