    This is driving me to the point of insanity.

    Safari on iOS 10 is displaying an old apple-touch-icon for a website. On the Mac it is correct.

    What I have tried:

    - Settings -> Safari -> Clear History and Website Data
    - Safari -> Advanced -> Website Data -> Remove all Website Data
    - Settings -> Reset -> Reset All Settings
    - Deleting and re-adding the favorite (several times before, during and after)

    And the godforsaken icon won't update! If I try and add the website to the home screen, the correct icon shows.

    This issue is driving me up the wall, mostly because it seems so pointless. Why can't I clear the icon cache? It's ridiculous :mad:

    Am I to just expect there is no way whatsoever to do this without doing a clean install of my phone?

    The steps you've taken are correct, specifically #4 "deleting and re-adding". What site/icon are you expecting to see?

    Wtf. It's just updated. It took 48 hours after I did those steps above. They must be stored in some separate cache.
    Thanks for the reply.
