Welcome to the forums, hope you stay awhile. Back to your question, I wouldn't recommend any sort of app or cache cleaning for your 6+. As iOS does a good job of managing all of this for you, it's not necessary to install extra apps. You can delete apps that you don't use if you are trying to free up storage.

As far as I know just double pressing the home button and swiping up the apps does just fine
I would only swipe up on apps if you are having an issue with them or they become unresponsive. Since iOS is handling all of this for you, it's possible to slow down your phone if you constantly close down apps.

Hello,
Can you please elaborate on this ? If swiping the apps by pressing the home button frequently will slow down the phone, then how should we close them ? Not closing the apps would eat up more battery... Right ? I am sorry but trying to figure out what you have posted.

Closing apps actually use more battery resources. It takes a lot to start them back up. There's not really any good apps for clearing cache from apps. Apple has pulled them from the App Store. The best way is to delete the app, then reinstall it.

In that case, then why would anyone suggest to close apps to save battery ? So, you mean if i use 10 apps daily, does that mean i should never close them ?

I'll try. The point that I was trying to make is you should not get into the habit of force closing apps. iOS will actually disable inactive apps and so they should not take up any battery power. As Led was also saying, it is a strain on the phone when you constantly open and close apps. I was suggesting that you only do this if it is really necessary, such as in the case of an app freezing or not wanting to respond. If you are looking to save battery, there are other things you can do that don't involve closing apps such as checking what apps are set to run in the background and then decide if you need them to stay open in the background. You can disable disable services that are consuming battery power. I don't think that closing apps is the best way to speed up your phone.

Thanks. My concept is clear now.

Whatever happened to CM Security app? Was that removed from the Appstore again?
I don't think it came back. iTunes did not like their method of pushing cache from apps. Basically, they filled up the phone's available space, thereby pushing the cache out. Or something to that effect.

There's nothing in the description to indicate this app purges cache. What does it do to give you more storage space? It looks to me it's just another battery app that shows battery stats and charging info.

It deletes stored cache. And frees up memory as well. Here's some pics of it.
