Clear iOS App Store Cache

The iOS App Store app is basically a specialized web browser that shows you apps and allows you to download them. Sometimes it misbehaves. You can clear its cache and reload the content you are viewing with an odd little trick. Tap the Featured button at the bottom of the screen 10 times in a row. Other buttons at the bottom usually work as well. After the 10th tap the screen will go blank and reload.

    The featured button was at the top and not bottom.
    I tapped it 20 times and the screen did not go blank.

    It went blank and stayed that way, it never reloaded. “Purchased” was the only feature with information. I had to close the app completely and restart it for a reload. iOS 9.2… FYI.
