10 Easy Tips To Clear Up Storage On Your iPhone

Have you ever wondered what’s eating up the storage on your iPhone? 

“Storage Almost Full” is really bothersome.  I use my iPhone a lot.  Especially for pictures and pictures along with several other things could be eating up the storage on your iPhone.

10 Easy Tips To Clear Up Storage On Your iPhone.

1. Find Out Which Apps Are Using The Most Space.

Did you know you can see which apps are taking up the most space in just a couple of taps? Head to Settings > General > Usage, and then click Manage Storage. You’ll then see the greediest apps and can figure out if any need deleting.

2. Optimize Your iPhone Storage.

iOS 8 gives you the ability to store lower resolution “optimized” versions of photos and videos on your iPhone, while uploading the full resolution versions to your iCloud account. Simply go to Settings > Photos & camera > Optimize phone storage, and you’ll never have to panic-delete photos again.

3. Back Up Your Photos and Documents.

Whether you upload your content directly onto your laptop via a USB, or use an app like Dropbox to store it online, getting your photos, videos, and documents OFF your phone is the undisputed fastest way to up your storage.

4. Delete Apps You Don’t Use.

Are you an app junking? If you’re in a habit of downloading apps and games and getting bored after five minutes, make sure they’re not still clogging up your phone’s storage.

5. Don’t Keep Both Photos When Using HDR.

If you use HDR mode to capture better photos, be aware that it is automatically set to save both versions of the image. Go to Settings > Photos & Camera and deselect Keep Normal Photo to make sure you’re not doubling up on the same snaps.

6. Be Selective With Your Music.

Be real—how many songs do you actually listen to regularly? Delete the ones you don’t listen to by swiping right to left on any song, and consider downloading Spotify to listen to any music you want without hogging your phone’s memory.

7. Delete Those Millions Of Texts.

Are you sentimental?  You’re not helping anyone by hoarding all those texts on your phone. In iOS 8, you can change your settings to automatically delete read texts after a month (instead of the auto setting “forever”), which will prevent iMessage causing you storage woes in the future.

8.  Don’t join other people’s Photo Streams.

This is a nice way to share images of events you attended with friends, or pictures of grandchildren with grandparents, but beware that if you join someone else’s photo stream it may quickly fill up your iPhone.

Make sure you have Photo Sharing turned off in Settings > Photos & Camera.

There is also the new iCloud Photo Library, currently in Beta. When this launches you will be able to automatically upload and store your entire library in in iCloud to access photos and videos on all your devices.

9. Clear Your Browser History.

It may be a hassle logging into your regular sites again, but you’d be surprised at how much memory your browser history takes up. Simply head to Settings > Safari > and tap on Clear Cookies.

10. Don’t Save Your Instagrams Automatically.

If you’re a frequent Instagram user, you might be surprised by how much space your duplicated Instagram snaps are taking up. Go into your settings and make sure you switch the “Save Original Photo” toggle to off.
