How to Clear Android 4.2 Jelly Bean Cached App Data

Today smart phones come with adequate amount of internal space. 16 GB internal memory is common to advanced Android phones such as Nexus 4 and Samsung Galaxy SIII. But sometimes music and movie lovers fill their internal phone memory with lots of music and song files. Now, if you face any such issue where there is no free space available in your mobile device then you can always create some free space by deleting cache memory of your mobile phone.

Cache App data is nothing but unnecessary data of applications which get stored in your phones application memory. Previously, Android had a facility to delete the cached app data of any application. Now, in Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, one can delete the entire cached app data in one go.

All you need to do is go to Settings in your Android device. Go to Storage. Here, you’ll get the cached data details. Tap on “Cached data” and you’ll get a pop up which asks you to clear cached data for all apps.


Tap on OK, and the entire cache data will be deleted in one go. No need to go to each application separately and delete cache data one by one. Great, isn’t it.

This option is available on Nexus 4 devices. Unfortunately, it’s not available for Samsung Galaxy S III users, may be Samsung users will get this feature in next Android update.
