Is your iPhone's storage space starting to run out? Want to delete WhatsApp data to free up space on your iPhone? Then you have come to the right article. In this last one, I show you three methods to clear whatsapp cache on an iPhone or an iPad.

1) Delete WhatsApp data in batch

If you want delete pictures and videos without losing important messages and data of a WhatsApp chat, it is possible to do this.

Thanks to the latest WhatsApp update, batch deletion of images or videos is now possible.

And to make it faster, it is possible to delete content by type. To do this, follow the steps below:

  • Go to WhatsApp settings, tap “ Data and storage usage"
  • Then select " Storage usage " at the bottom.
  • A list of your contacts will open with the storage space they occupy.
  • Choose a contact and tap “ Manage"
  • Next, select the type of content you want to erase (videos, images and/or all gifs, etc.). And press “ Clear"

And that's it, it's over. It's a simple and easy solution, but it takes a little time.
And it gets more complicated, if you have dozens of contacts to erase their content. To avoid this, look at the second method.

2) Erase all WhatsApp data in one click

This solution will free up storage space on your iPhone by deleting all voice memos, documents, videos, photos and files received on WhatsApp with just one click.
After completing the steps below, all WhatsApp caches will have been emptied:

  • Launch WhatsApp on your iPhone.
