Delete Junk File and Frees up Space on Jailbroken iPhone with iCleaner

The iOS platform created by Apple is known for its fluidity and efficient app loading and exit times. On the other hand, it’s competitor, Android has taken giant strides and has been improving at an accelerated pace. But is also subject to slowing down on accumulation of junk files, like most computer OS as well. iOS however is believed to be resistant to such issues with some apps like iCleaner, but that’s how we perceive it and to be blunt, we take the speed and fluidity for granted.


iOS maintains caches and temporary files that become redundant over time and do nothing but slow your device down while taking up precious space. This fact is not easily noticeable, but it always better to free up memory space rather than allowing something useless to consume space in your iPhone.

iCleaner for the iOS platform is pretty much similar in functionality to what CCleaner is in Windows and Mac OS X. To elaborate, it is a perfect kind of utility that enables users to clean up junk files. It might be possible that iOS does not contain a lot of  temporary files like Windows or Android, but it has caches and temporary folders just like any other operating system.


iCleaner is pretty straight forward to use once it’s installed. Running the app, you will be prompted with whether to clean certain types of junk files or not, one prompt after another. There are many options which enable to speed up, clean up, and revive your iOS device before, but if you’re jailbroken, a free app called iCleaner can actually perform a bunch of maintenance tasks with one tap.

  • Safari’s cache, cookies, and history
  • Application WebClip caches, cookies, temporary files, and snapshots. It also does a more in-depth cleanup for certain popular apps like Facebook, iFile, Instagram, Twitter, and others.
  • Log files and crash reports
  • System cache files and databases
  • System temporary files
  • Partially downloaded Cydia packages and repo files

When you start it up, it will ask you which of these you want to remove, so if you rather like your Safari cookies, you don’t have to delete them. Casual users may not find that it frees up aton of space, but the general consensus seems to be that it’ll free up a few hundred megabytes—and some heavier users are noticing a few gigs, even. Regardless, it’s a good way to keep your device clean and free up space for a few more songs, if you need it.

The app also removes in depth data from apps such as Facebook, YouTube, Twitter etc. thereby decreasing loading times of these apps and increasing overall performance. Once you have all the junk on your device deleted, you will be asked to respring the device.

So do that in order to confirm the removal and well, avoid any mishaps. The app has aesthetics that make it look like a proper app rather than some run of the mill app. Even better, it gets the job done rightly and quickly, without creating errors or stuff.

iCleaner is a free download for jailbroken iOS devices, available in the default Cydia repositories.
