After running the device health check and going thru the issues found on my S8+ under the storage category it is suggested by health check to clear the cache of apps that are currently holding a lot of temporary files that are just taking up room. My issue is that in order to fix this you need to go thru each app individually and clear the cache.
1st screen shot is where you chose the app
2nd is being directed to which setting in the app you need to chose in order to clear cache
3rd is actually clearing the cache in the storage setting of the app.
After doing this you need to go back to the 1st screen to chose another app and do the same thing. 3 different screens you have to go thru twice; once to get to the cache and then another time to go back to the temporary files page.
Is there a more efficent and faster way to go about this where it could be set up like when your going thru duplicate photo's and just tick the check boxes of each app and confirm and clear at the bottom instead? Example below
I know files and app caches are probably not the same thing and handled differently but if there is any way to make this somewhat easier and less time consuming it would be nice. I don't know about everyone else but I have quite a bit of apps on my phone and doing this every now and then makes me not want to do it at all. Lol.
Deleting the cache for each individual app sounds like a time-consuming task. Good news is that your device will offer a faster way to clear the device cache in a few simple steps. Please go to Settings > Device Maintenance > Storage > tap on the blue section that says "Clear Now". This will delete all unnecessary data from your device including cache files. Please let us know if you have any questions.
You can use AppMgrIII to clear the cash in all apps at the same time. I also use it to move apps to the SD card. This can also be done with all transferable apps at the same time.
I have a droid Moto Z 2, and would love to be able to clear the entire cache of everything all at once too instead of spending an hour cleaning each app individually. How is this done on my phone?
ashleysweet, we understand the importance of cutting down the time when it comes to clearing the cache on all applications. Here is a link you can reference that can help with clearing all the cache on your device http://spr.ly/6608EL2kM. Let me know if this helps. ChetonJ_VZW
