All android smartphone users have seen these two options on their phone. Here we are explaining the difference between Clear Cache and Clear App Data.
Clearing the cache
The cache is a temporary storage location on your internal memory, which helps the app to speed up the processing. Consider facebook as an example. When you open facebook for the first time, You may feel that it is a little slow. After loading some initial data it will be fast. Those data are stored in the cache.
When you clear the cache these data are deleting from memory. Some times this app cache may take too much space. Clearing cache will give you more free space on your storage space.
Clearing App Data
