I posted this in our Forum and thought to share it here, too. (So it shows up in Search Results, in case someone doesn't know how to do it, feel free to copy and paste into your own Forum to help your Forum Members πŸ™‚ ).

How to Clear Cookies on your iPhone 

If you are using the Safari Browser, go to:

1. iPhone Settings

2. > Safari

3. > Advanced

4. > Website Data >

5. Then clear it there.

(In that area, you will see cookies stored on your device from the sites you have visited, and any third-party cookies that have been stored in your device).

OR for quicker erasure: 

1. iPhone Settings

2. > Safari

3. > Clear History and Website Data

This will remove history, cookies and other browsing data.

When doing any type of web development or testing, it's important to regularly do this ("Clearing Cookies") so that you can view any changes you may have made on your website and see how the changes appear on a mobile device.

Also, regularly clearing your cookies would help you not be pitched specific advertisements on the sites that you visit (because all sites use and store cookies). πŸ™‚

Mobile Phones have "hard caches" so unless you delete the cookies in your mobile device, it will just be there, until it expires (and some cookies can stay on your device for as long as one year). Unless you delete or clear them. 

Hope this helps!  Feel free to share!  Good luck and God bless you! πŸ™‚
