Hi, I am new to iPhone before I had used HTC. I am quite curious how to remove junk files that are downloaded via mail, web browsing, Facebook etc., which can occupy some space and slow down my phone. I can’t find any way how to do it. Thanks a lot for the answers.

iPhone junk files includes temporary and corrupted files, cookies, caches, crash logs produced by the third-party applications that we use frequently. With the increasing memory hogs and junk files, you will find your iOS device is running slower and slower. To clean up apps and speed up your device, you can delete the junk files from the application itself. Although not all apps are with the exactly same path, most of them are pretty similar. Let’s take Safari and YouTube apps for examples.

Clear iPhone

1. Clear Safari Cache on iPhone

To clean history and cookies from Safari, go to SettingsSafariClear History and Website Data. To delete other stored information, go to SettingsSafari AdvancedWebsite DataRemove All Website Data.

2. Clean Junk Files Generated by YouTube

Launch the YouTube app on your iPhone, tap on the Menu button, which is three-dots ranking vertically on the upper-right corner. Choose Settings from the expanded list, and then select Clear watch history and Clear search history respectively under Privacy option to erase all caches and histories.

Cleaning Apps

You can delete junk files by this method, but it’s very troublesome as you need to open each app and clear history on safari one by one. what’s more, some hidden temporary files can’t be cleaned completely in this way. So I would like to introduce a professional junk file cleaner – FoneEraser for iOS, which is your best choice with one-click cleaning function and it is totally free!
