How to Clear YouTube App Cache on iPhone

Free ways to clear YouTube app cache on iPhone. This article provides you with detailed and simple instructions to clear YouTube app cache on iPhone to free up more valuable spaces.

As we know, clearing the App cache can free up memory, so nowadays more and more apps have the option to clear the cache and data generated by using the app. Normally you can find such option within the app itself under "Settings". But YouTube is not one of them.

YouTube only supports clearing watch and search history in Settings. However, besides history, there are other caches, cookies, and junk files generated by YouTube. That's why clearing the history is far from enough in most of situations.  How exactly to clear YouTube app cache on iPhone? You can try the following two methods.

Method 1: Clear YouTube App Cache on iPhone Manually

Data and caches stored by YouTube can be cleaned out by using the Usage option in Settings of your iPhone. Follow these steps to clean YouTube caches manually:

Step 1: Tap Settings > General > Storage & iCloud Usage.

Step 2: Tap Manage Storage in the top section (Storage).

Step 3: Find and Tap YouTube>>Tap Delete App

Step 4: Head to the App Store to re-install it. And this will be a clean install without any data and documents.


If your iPhone system version is newer than iOS 11.0, there will be a little difference:

Step 1: Tap Settings > General > iPhone Storage.

Step 2: Find and tap YouTube>>Tap Offload App or Delete App as per your own needs.

Step 3: Head to the App Store to re-install it.
