Clear the cache of apps on Fairphone 1

A cache is temporarily stored information which an app needs to function.

To solve issues with apps, the first step is to erase these data. Clearing the cache does not erase user information such as pictures.

You can clear the cache of one app or clear the cache of all apps at once.

  1. Tap the icon All Apps
  2. Press and hold the icon of the app of your choice
  3. Drag it to the top of the screen where it says App info
  4. Tap the Clear cache
  5. Reboot the phone.

 

Clear the cache of all apps

1. Go to Settings (via the pull-down menu on top → Icon with the person → Tuning switches)
2. Choose Storage
3. Scroll to Cached data
4. Tap Cached data
5. A pop-up shows: Clear cached data? Then click OK to confirm
6. Reboot the phone.
