How to clear cache and cookies on iPad?

      Cleaning the cache, cookies and iPad apps is one of the maintenance tasks we must do on the tablets made by Apple, so that they age better.

      Whether for security, privacy, or simply to save space, you can delete this collected information from the most popular browsers, as well as from the apps themselves.

  In these times, as users of technological devices, we are increasingly suspicious of our security.  Something similar happens in terms of privacy, which is that we don't want to give too much information, too much sensitive data, to browser developers.  If you feel identified, we'll show you the steps to follow to clear cache and cookies on your iPad, regardless of your browser and apps.

  In fact, the truth is that iPadOS 15 is full of features and improvements that improve the performance of the iPad.  We have its original browser, Safari, which has received dozens of new features in this update.  We have, for example, very interesting extensions, such as Private Relay, to mention one of them.

  However, if you usually browse every day, you will probably notice that your iPhone slows down over time.  This is because the major browsers, both Apple Safari and Google Chrome, store that information or data, in the form of cache and cookies, and it's the browsers we intend to work on today.

  Something you should know is that cache and cookies are on the iPad inside internet browsers and in some of the most popular apps we find inside Apple tablets.

  But then what are cache and cookies?

  Since we often insist on getting rid of them, you may be wondering what the purpose of cache and cookies is.  Both cache and cookies are data that is stored on the user's device, in this case the iPad.  They are also stored to "improve" our experience when we browse these portals.

  In general, we can define cache as the data stored in web browsers to help load heavy items like images, thumbnails, documents, etc.  Thus, they affect the speed.

  Meanwhile, we find small files in cookies that are used to store user information, such as your preferences and details, in a way that specifically affects your experience as a user.
