Your device uses temporary data stored in cache files to quickly recall information when you open an app. For example, music apps like Spotify and Apple Music might cache your most frequently used playlists, so it doesn't have to load your songs each time you open them. Browsers like Safari or Chrome will cache large images on websites that you visit on a regular basis, so it doesn't have to download the image every time you open the page.
Over time, your device may collect many files you don't need, which can cause many problems while using the apps. You can clear out these files to free up storage space on your device.
