is anyone aware of a cache cleaner that is compatible with iOS10.3??

the usual cache cleaners, battery doctor, Dr.Clean etc don't work at all.

"Phone Cleaner" updated the app yesterday saying it was compatible with 10.3, it wasn't as it only cleaned 1mb,in the end i contacted the developer advising as such, said he would look into it

Thanks for the help.

Anyone running 10.3 betas that have found a reliable cache cleaning app that works? If EA could build a proper App this wouldn't be a problem. But I hate having to keep 2GB of Real Racing 3 data on my device when I don't need it. I haven't installed the betas yet primarily because of this. I was hoping Dr. Cleaner would get an update but it appears its been pulled completely. I also have CM Security, but I doubt that will work as it hasn't even been in the App Store for a year.

So I installed 10.3 and gave Dr. Cleaner a try. To my surprise, it actually worked. Cleaned 90MB right away. I had previously ran it on 10.2.1 before updating just to clear out whatever junk was left over before upgrading. The real test will be next time I want to use RR3.

Is this Dr. Cleaner in the official App Store? I can only find it in the Mac Store from Trend Micro.

No, it was pulled a little bit back. Not sure exactly when as I received an update for it not to long ago.
Aha that is a shame.
Last night I tried to reduce the cache with e.g. Power Clean, CM Security (no longer in App Store) and iOverwrite for my iPhone 5s and it seems it still doesn't work for all apps especially the Facebook app remains bizarre big (700+ MB) which I could swear was much smaller a while ago (still like 300MB). I'm now also testing out a third party Facebook app (Friendly) to get rid of the official one. I sure hope that iOS11 will also finally come up with a better solution to clean cache per apps or for a list of apps.

Try Magic Phone Clean. That one has worked for me 100% of the time. Dr. Cleaner started acting up. It even states its 10.3 compatible.

Thanks for the tip. It seems I tried that Magic Phone Clean before and thought it was pretty similar with removing cache.
I just ran it and it deleted 248MB's of cache but I still can't figure out why the official Facebook app remains so big (598MB) although it seems the size has gone down from like 700+MB. I already download an alternative Facebook app that is much smaller but UI wise that's a bit less although the sorting of news is good old. Also with other apps like Facebook Messenger, nd LinkedIn the sizes of 165/194MB seems really big to me.

Sometimes you need to run it a few times in a row.

I tried a few times (3) and it didn't have much affect on Facebook although it did clean another 80 and 20MB the 2nd and 3rd time. It remains around 600MB. The Facebook app even went up to 629MB now after the third cache cleaning while it was 598MB after the first cache cleaning and I didn't open the Facebook app in between?
