Forum Question: How Do I Reduce Amount Of Storage Used By Certain iPad Apps?

I am trying to reduce the amount of storage that is used by certain apps on my iPad, running iOS 10.1.1. For instance, when I go to Settings > General > Storage & iCloud Usage > Storage > Manage Storage and wait for the list to refresh, I see that the Twitter app is using 859.5 MB of which 773 MB is Documents & Data and the app size is 86.5 MB. However, I see nothing in the settings for the Twitter app that would enable me to manage this data, except for deleting the app. There are similar issues for other apps. Is there a way that I can find out what data is taking up so much space and optionally to delete it?

    There is nothing you can do, short of uninstalling the app and reinstalling it. It is up to the app developer to give you tools to manage the data, or to use storage space wisely. If there are no tools for that in that specific app, then you are out of luck.
    In this case the uninstall option may be your best bet since it is relatively easy to reinstall and just log back in to restore your account to your iPhone, but with a clean data cache for that app.
