Can I Clear the System Cache on My Motorola Phone Running Android 8.1 Oreo or higher?



No, the system cache on Motorola phones running Android 8.1 Oreo or 9.0 Pie can't be cleared.

Additional Notes

Note: With the update to Android 8.0 Oreo, Google has removed the ability to clear the system cache from the partition.  Instead, the system cache is cleared every time the phone is rebooted.
