2] Free Up iPhone Storage Usage

Understandably, the storage space present on the iPhone will eventually get used up. Are you wondering what to do now that the storage is full? Well, for that, Apple has ensured that users can free up the storage space in the device. For that, follow these steps –

  • Go to the Settings app on the device.
  • Select the General option.
  • Go to the iPhone Storage option.
  • Here, you will see the data used graph color-coded at the top of the screen.
  • Below, you will come across installed apps and the amount of storage each uses.
  • Click on the Review Large Attachments and turn it on.Review iPhone Storage Attachement
  • After that, you will view the list of the files that take up the most space on the phone.
  • Tapping on any of the files will offer the option to delete them.
  • If you want to opt for the bulk-delete option, click the Edit button on the top of the screen.
  • After that, you can delete all these files at once.

Another way to free up space on the iPhone is to delete or offload an app. If there are apps that you do not use presently on your device, you can offload the apps. This way, you can delete the app, but the user data and app icon will remain on the device.

Alternatively, you can also delete the app from your device. In that case, you will lose your iPhone user data, app, and icon. Remember that re-installing the app will not get the user data back.

I hope the post was easy to follow and that you were able to check iPhone storage usage. Keep a tab on unused apps, and uninstall them when you don’t need them.
