A cache is a temporary storage area that stores data so that future requests for that data can be served faster. The cache may be stored in memory or in a file. There are two types of cache:  temporary storage and permanent storage.  

Temporary storage, also known as volatile storage, is used to store data that can be lost if there is a power outage or the system is rebooted. Permanent storage is used to store data that should not be lost if there is a power outage or system reboot.  

The cache on a computer or mobile device can be cleared to remove data that is no longer valid. It is important to note that clearing the cache may result in the loss of data stored in the cache.

Final Words


Clearing the cached data can recover storage space on your phone. Clearing cache regularly can also help to improve your phone's performance. This is because cached files are stored in the phone's memory. If the memory is filled with cached files, the phone may run slower. However, if you clear the cache regularly, the space in the memory can be reused for other purposes.
