What is 'cache' for an app, and why does it matter?

The cache is a storage area where apps keep temporary data to help them load more quickly and efficiently. Over time, this cached data can become outdated or corrupt, leading to problems such as slow performance, crashes, and other unexpected behavior.

When you clear an app's cache, you remove all the temporary files it has stored without affecting your personal data or settings within the app. This can free up valuable storage space on your device and help the app run more smoothly. You will not lose any account data when you clear the cache.

Clearing the cache is particularly helpful in resolving issues related to:

  • Slow app performance
  • App crashing or freezing
  • Poor or inconsistent network connection
  • Loading or functionality problems within the app
  • Outdated or incorrect data being displayed

How to clear the cache for 18Birdies on iOS (iPhone)

Although iOS doesn't allow you to clear the cache for individual apps directly through the settings (like Android does), there are a couple of ways to approach this. Here's what you can do:

Method 1: Offload the App

This method doesn't delete the app but removes its data and cache, giving you a fresh start without losing any important information connected to the app.

  1. Go to Settings: Open the Settings app on your iOS device.
  2. General: Tap on "General."
  3. iPhone Storage: Scroll down and tap on "iPhone Storage."
  4. Find 18Birdies: Scroll through the list of apps until you find 18Birdies, then tap on it.
  5. Offload App: Tap on "Offload App," then confirm by tapping it again. This removes the app but keeps its documents and data.
  6. Reinstall 18Birdies: After offloading, tap on "Reinstall App" to restore 18Birdies to your device with a clean slate.

Method 2: Reinstall the App

A more straightforward approach is simply to delete and reinstall the app, which effectively clears the cache and gives you a fresh start.

  1. Press and Hold: Find the 18Birdies app icon on your home screen. Press and hold it until a menu appears or all the icons start jiggling.
  2. Delete App: Tap on "Remove App" or the "-" symbol (depending on your iOS version), then confirm you want to delete it.
  3. Reinstall: Head over to the App Store, search for 18Birdies, and tap the cloud icon or "Install" to get it back.

Both methods should give your app a fresh start without any clutter or cache slowing things down. Remember, if you choose to delete and reinstall, you might need to log back into your account, so make sure you remember your credentials!
