How to Clear your Android Phone Cache


Time to do some Spring cleaning on your phone! Today I’m going to show you how to clear
your app cache and get rid of unnecessary files. This is Jordan Carey, your friendly neighborhood
Republic Wireless Community Ambassador and today and I’m going to show you how to clear
the app cache on your phone. Now the app cache is where all your temporary
files from your apps are stored. Over time this can build up and really eat
up a lot of the memory on your phone, so let’s learn how to clean it up. Right here I have the Samsung Galaxy S6 so
this will show you how to do it on all the Samsung devices and here is the Nexus 5X so
this will show you how to do it on all the Nexus and Moto devices. So first thing we need to do is go into Settings. Scroll down, and click on Storage. So, now we have our Storage right here, so
if we scroll down further you’ll see Cached data. In order to clear, all you have to do is click,
and click Delete. On the Nexus, click, click OK. Now that’s cleaning that up and deleting
all those files, so you increased your memory which is really good, because eventually over
time you can get several hundred megabytes built up in cached data. Now I’m going to show you guys how to deep
clean your phone. You can do this by clearing your Android system
cache. Now in order to do that, the first thing you
need to do is power off your phone. On the Nexus and Moto phones, press the power
button and volume down button at the same time. Okay, now you’ll see Start. Press the volume down button until you come
to Recovery Mode, then click the power button. Once you see this, press and hold the power
button and then click volume up. Scroll down to Wipe cache partition. MAKE SURE YOU DO NOT GO TO “WIPE DATA AND
FACTORY RESET” as that will factory reset your phone. Then click the power button, then click yes. Once completed, you’ll see this screen,
then press the power button to select Reboot system now. Now the Samsung is very different, so you
need to make sure to press the volume UP button, power button, and home button at the same
time. If you press the volume down button you will
end in download or Odin mode, and order to get out of that mode you need to press every
single button on the phone until the phone restarts. Let’s power it on. You’ll see this loading. Okay, now once that is completed, scroll down
to Wipe cache partition. Press the power button, scroll down to Yes,
and press the power button. Once completed, click Reboot system now. There you go! You just cleared the Android system cache
on your phone. I hope you guys enjoyed this video on how
to clean up that memory on your phone and save some storage. Join me again next time so you can learn how
to make your smartphone, smarter. Thank you.
