Part 4. Why Does Your Facebook and Other Apps Say "Cleaning" Sometimes?

If you are using iOS 5 or later, like most people are, you will sometimes see a label "Cleaning" appear next to an app. This is not an uncommon occurrence and it doesn’t necessarily mean that anything is wrong.

This is just a new feature that Apple has introduced after iOS 5 that detects cache and other temporary files on apps such as Facebook. This is to ensure that the next time you do a backup on iTunes or iCloud the backup is smaller and takes up less space.

This feature also serves a very important function. Since the addition of iCloud and Wi-Fi, it has become very important to keep app data as clean as possible so backups are efficient and helpful as possible. This cleaning feature ensures that backups are small enough so that when restoring from this backup, you don’t have to spend a lot of time frustrated with the slow speed of the large files.

So, there is no need to panic the next time you see this label next to Facebook or any other app. This is a necessary and dare we say very helpful feature that actually makes your device that much more effective. It may even save you from having to clear out the cache on these apps yourself.

It is therefore one of the most recommended processes to get the work done.

  • Duplicate elimination
  • Two records of the same type not only cause errors but also consume the space purposelessly. It is therefore the data removal is one of the processes that can remove all these records. If effective software programs are used then the user can remove the contents without any issue and trouble. It also means that the user needs to ensure that the software that is being used is effective enough to get the work done easily.
