    Hello,

    Before the launch of the game, I am using Networking.UnityWebRequestAssetBundle.GetAssetBundle in order to load the correct asset bundles - either from Cache or via https to the client. What I found out today on my ios device is, that if I increment the version number - it does correctly redownload the file from the specified location, but I can also see that the old files remain on the device and the app storage increases. So when incrementing the version number several times - each download takes around 200MB - now I suddenly have over 2 GB of data for this app stored (showed by ios storage manager), because of 10 different versions. Do I have to manually delete the old versions (if so how?) or what is going wrong here?

    Thanks in advance,
    Oliver

    Ok thanks, I was thinking that the caching system takes care itself of removing old versions after a new one has been downloaded - I wonder why would want to have old versions still alive :)

    So no problem then and thanks for clarification,
