Popping up on your screen at the most inconvenient of moments, the ‘iPhone storage almost full’ notice can infuriate even the calmest individuals.
Forcing you to delete photos at the drop of a hat, your iPhone storage problem might seem like it’s plotting against you. Thankfully, help is on the way! Learn these 10 technical cheats, and you’ll never again trade photos for memory.
Learn these 10 technical cheats, and you’ll never again trade photos for memory.
1. Act like you’re ‘buying a movie,’ just don’t pay for anything.
Your iPhone 6/6s/6 Plus/SE/5S/5C/4S or 4 is actually designed to maximize profit for Apple at all times (shocking, right?). When you attempt to download a movie or season of F.R.I.E.N.D.S., your iOS anticipates the memory space you’ll need and automatically clears the useless junk that’s been hanging around. Thousands of cached files, cookies, and other meaningless data will disappear completely. Some people have even gained 3 full gigs in storage this way!
2. iPhone storage almost full … of useless apps?
While it might sound more like a ‘general rule’ than a tip, there’s layers to the idea. Every application in your iPhone storage system accrues its own data over time. In simple terms, that 250 MB photo editing app could end up hoarding 2.4 GB between storing your notification settings, past locations, wifi passwords, connections to social media, etc. When in doubt, delete it.
3. Don’t hold on to ancient messages.
iPhones are programmed to store text messages indefinitely. That’s right, they’ll potentially stay put forever unless you say otherwise. Manage this iPhone storage setting by clicking on the ‘messages’ ‘icon. Here you’ll be able to specify when conversations should be deleted automatically. Simply press a button and watch your phone free up space!
