    I have a 3rd generation iPad running IOS 5.1.  Safari setting shows only two options: “Clear History” and “Clear Cookies and Data.” There is no (separate) option to “Clear Cache.”

    :) thanks easy enough !

    Same here! I wonder if there is somewhere right in the depths of the settings where cache can be cleared as if over used and not cleared it’ll slow you up

    Regarding the post about clearing “Cache” when I go into settings then Safari I see ‘Clear History’ and clear cookies and data’ but there is NO ‘clear cache’ can anyone please tell me how to clear my cache.

     Saranden did you ever get a reply about clearing your Cache?  I have the same problem as you.

    Same here. I was only having problems with one site. I totally removed it from my iPad and reinstalled. Now working fine.

    I have the same issue, no clear cache option only cookies and history. Grrrr!

  • Vivekimps88

    On the iPad, go to Settings > Safari and scroll to the bottom (-ish)
    of the right hand side. You’ll see two lines: “Clear History” and
    “Clear Cookies and Data.” Pressing either (or both) will clear those
    items, after you acknowledge a pop-up.

    This is for iOS 5. You used to have the ability to also clear the cache
    in versions 4.x and below, but that option is now gone…

    Hope this helps.

    Safari on the desktop has a ridiculously persistent cache and Safari on iOS 4 seems to be the same way: This does not really clear the cache, not fully. Twas ever thus, though, and this is better than nothing.
