Smart phones including the iPad use the cache technology to improve user experience. Users can easily access previously visited pages quickly as well as fill forms they’ve filled in before, making the experience faster. Cache is not limited to Safari or any browsing app for the matter, but to all apps. That’s why you’ll see an app like Twitter taking up to times five of its app size. Now imagine the effect of two, three or more apps occupying that amount of space on your device along with what Safari is already occupying.
