How to Wipe Cache in Android

Wiping the cache partition on a Android device can help resolve certain performance issues or glitches that might be related to cached data.

It’s different from performing a factory reset, as it doesn’t erase your personal data.

Here’s how you can wipe the cache partition on a Android device.

  1. Turn Off the Device: Power off your Android device.
  2. Boot into Recovery Mode: Press and hold the Volume up button and the Power button simultaneously. When the Android logo appears, release both buttons.
  3. Navigate to Wipe Cache Partition: Use the volume buttons to navigate to the “Wipe cache partition” option in the recovery mode menu. Use the power button to select it.
  4. Confirm the Wipe: Confirm the action by selecting “Yes” on the confirmation screen.
  5. Complete the Wipe: The device will now wipe the cache partition. Once the process is complete, select the “Reboot system now” option to restart the device.

Your device will now boot up with a cleared cache partition. This can often help improve performance and resolve minor issues caused by cached data.

Please note that the exact steps might vary slightly based on the specific model and software version of your Android device. If you encounter any difficulties or differences in the process, you can refer to the official Android website or user manual for the most accurate instructions.
