When we are using apps (Facebook, Instagram, Photos, etc.), browsing websites, or sending emails on iPhone, junk files are accumulated and eat up iOS storage over time. Apple software developers have not gotten around to addressing this obscene oversight. So right now we have to manually delete caches manually or using third-party iOS 10 cleaner tool – Tenorshare iCareFone to delete junk files on iPhone/iPad by one click.

Method 1: Clean iOS 10 Junk Files on iPhone/iPad Manually

This method requires you finding and cleaning up the caches in each application separately. Here we take Safari as an example.

  • Press Settings app on your device > Safari
  • Scroll down and tap "Clear History and Website Data"
  • In pop-up window, tap "Clear History and Data"
  • alt: clear safari caches

The steps to clean up junk files in YouTube app as follows:

  • Open YouTube app, tap on the Menu button that is three dots ranking vertically on the upper right corner.
