Safari is one of the most reliable web browsers on the internet that comes pre-installed on every Apple device out there. However, one of the most common errors that Safari users face is the “Cannot Parse Response” error. In this blog, we will take you through a step-by-step process on how you can resolve this error with ease.
The first step is to check your internet connection. If your internet connection is not stable, the web browser will not be able to render the website’s components, and this will ultimately lead to the error popping up on your screen. A good way to check whether or not your internet connection is stable is by running a speed test, which you can do pretty easily on the internet nowadays. All you have to do is search for “speed test,” and it is quite intuitive after that.
If the error is still persisting, you can go ahead with step number two, which is to refresh your web page. This is quite easy to do on an iPhone. You can do this by clicking on the refresh icon on the right side of your address bar, or you can simply just pull down the web page that will refresh it as well.
Even after this, if the error is still there, you can go ahead and try step number three, which is to quit and re-launch Safari. Quitting an app on an iPhone can be done by closing it in the recent apps. Now you can go open recent apps in an iPhone by swiping up on the home bar. Once you do that, you can go ahead and find Safari in your recent tabs and swipe up to close it. Once you’ve closed it, relaunch it, and check whether the website is working.
If the error is still persistent, you can move on with step number four, which involves clearing cookies and website data. So long story short, when you visit a website, it stores cookies and other website data to serve you the same website a little faster the next time you visit it. But occasionally, this stored website data can cause some errors in loading the website. So, you can remove some of the data that is specific to a website, and that can fix the problem of the “Cannot Parse Response” error.
On an iPhone, you can do this by launching the settings app. Once you’re in settings, you can go ahead and scroll down to Safari and then tap on it. Under Safari settings, you can scroll down to the bottom and tap on “Advanced.” Once you’re in advanced settings, tap on “Website Data.” Once you tap on website data, you can go ahead and click on “Edit” on the top right corner and then click the left icon from the website from which you want to delete the data. Alternatively, you can swipe right on a particular website and tap on “Remove,” which will also remove the website’s data.
Lastly, if you want to remove all of the website data at once, you can scroll down and tap on “Remove All Website Data.” Once you’re here, you can go ahead and click on it, and once you click on it, a “Remove Now” prompt will appear. It is just a final confirmation on whether or not you want to remove all the website data at once. Once you click on “Remove Now,” all the data will be deleted, and hopefully, your Safari browser does not have the “Cannot Parse Response” error anymore.
Just check it once again, and hopefully, it is resolved after all these four steps because there’s a 99% chance it has been resolved already.
