How to Clear Cookies and Cache on iPad

What are Cache and Cookies?

Before we get into it, here’s a small idea of what Cache and Cookies are. First of all, both cache and cookies are forms of data that are stored on a user’s machine, in our case the iPad. This stored data is there to help make the user’s experience better when browsing websites and filling forms online.


The Cache is data that is stored by web browsers to help load heavy elements like images, thumbnails, documents, etc. The cache is useful to help websites load faster. For instance – If you visit a website that is image-heavy, your web browser will create a small cache of those images so the next time you visit the website, the images load almost immediately.
