Flushing your DNS cache on iPhone or Android

Flushing your DNS cache on iPhone or Android


Option 1 — Toggle Airplane mode

Toggling Airplane mode on and off is the simplest approach.

Open the ‘Settings’ menu.
You will notice an airplane icon. Toggle this on by clicking it.
Toggle it off by clicking it once more.

Option 2 — Reboot your device

Rebooting should clear your DNS as well.

Option 3 — Dump Network settings

This will clean your cache, but it will also stop your Wi-Fi connection for a short time.

Open the ‘Settings’ menu.
Select ‘General’ from the drop-down menu.
Reset the network settings by clicking ‘Reset’, then ‘Reset Network Settings’.
After that, your device will be rebooted. You must manually reset your DNS servers if you already modified them.
