There are some problems which can be fixed quite easily on any Android software. You can complete a factory reset if you are looking for the best way to fix bugs and other problems or a cache wipe on your Huawei P10 and P10 Plus. If your Huawei P10 and P10 Plus becomes glitch, slow or freezes suddenly, you may have to clear the cache to solve these problems. The guide below shows how to clear the cache on the Huawei P10 and P10 Plus.
The meaning of a cache and its function
Two different cache types can be found on the Huawei P10 and P10 Plus. The first type is an app cache and the other type is the system cache. Every app on the Huawei P10 and P10 Plus has its own cache usually installed inside the app. The app cache allows data to be stored temporarily which is good for the efficient switching between different applications.
The Android software uses the system cache. If apps keep on freezing or crushing, it is suggested to clear the system cache which should help fix the problem all together.
Clearing the app cache on your Huawei P10 and P10 Plus
If one specific app seems to be faulty in the sense that it is crushing or freezing, try and clear its app cache. App cache can be cleared by following the instructions provided below:
- Power on your Huawei P10 and P10 Plus
- From the settings menu, open the App manager
- Choose om the app whose cache you would like to clear
- Once you have chosen your app, locate the info screen for the app and select clear cache
Alternatively, if you would like to clear the app cache for all the apps on your device;
- Go to the Settings menu and open Storage
- Choose on Cached Data and simultaneously clear all the app caches.
To be Noted: It is recommended that you do not clear data because you will lose all the information related to that app such as game progress, settings, preferences and passwords.
Alternative method if app cache clearing does now work;
You may have to uninstall apps which have issues if these issues cannot be fixed by clearing the app caches and simply reboot the device. Before resetting your Huawei P10 and P10 Plus, remember to back up all your data to avoid losing important files. Once you have rebooted your Huawei P10 and P10 Plus and realize the problems have not been fixed, it is recommended that you carry out system cache wipe.
