Storage space is something that most iPhone users will eventually find to be a problem. The device has a limited amount of space for files, and it can quickly be consumed by apps, pictures, videos and music. While there are many things that you can do to free up this space, your Spotify app actually has a tool that can clear up some space as well.
Our tutorial below is going to show you how to delete your Spotify cache from the device. In some cases this can be a significant amount of space that can give you the storage you need to install a new app, or download an iOS update.
Spotify – Delete Cache on iPhone
The steps in this article were performed on an iPhone 7 Plus in iOS 12.1.2. Note that completing these actions to delete your Spotify cache won’t delete any playlists or songs that you have downloaded to listen offline.
Step 1: Open the Spotify app.
Step 2: Touch the Your Library tab at the bottom-right corner of the screen.
Step 3: Tap the gear icon at the top-right of the screen.
Step 4: Choose the Storage option.
Step 5: Tap the Delete Cache button.
Step 6: Touch the Delete Cache button.
That Spotify settings menu has a number of other options that you can configure, too. You can add crossfade if you would like your songs to seem to blend into one another, for example, as just one way that you can change the behavior of the app.
