A majority of internet browsers use storage space on the device named a cache for stashing copies of the web pages you have browsed. After that, when you wish to load the same webpage again, the web browser takes the webpage from the cache instead of taking it from the website. This way you get a faster and smoother browsing experience. But, if you often get errors while browsing web pages, then you may want to clear the cache. Follow the process given below to refresh the cache for the most popular browsers used in iPhones.
