iPhones’ camera quality has improved impressively in the past few decades to such an extent that some extra-talented geeks are ditching their DSLRs. That’s the beauty iPhones have garnered over the years.
Well, lots of photos, the time lapse Instagram videos, the hefty KB of downloaded files and your favorite movies out there in your device, all add to the space your iPhone devicehas. And, folks I can personally feel the pain when your iphone scream out not loudly but with a silently pop-up, “no storage available.
It sucks, sucks like hell to even visualize such a scenario.
Why not be proactive to tackle this frequent storage problem? If that seems your cup of tea, I have a dining delight right here right now just for you.
Kindly help yourself while serving.
Although Apple has sorted out the storage issue with the new iPhonemodels, the users with the older devices are still struggling a lot to make space for their new memories (photos and videos). If you, by any chance are one of the victims of poor iPhone storage, I have got the problem covered for you. Let’s delve into this not-so-much-explored side of iPhones that make it easy to increase the device storage even in the older models.
I'll be discussing the pointers one-by-one.
Choose the one that suits your need the best.
Wifi Card Readers Can Take The Pain Away Wifi card readers are your true companion.
Why? Because they store probably everything you would require to back up. Why not have your own card reader and transfer songs, movies, and books to the device.
Wireless connection is available and you don’t need the internet connection to access your files.
Delete Duplicate Files Most of the times, devices end up with the duplicate files of a new install.
That’s nothing but merely added junk to our iPhone device. Take out some time to clean up the junk and add more storage to your smartphone.
Clear the Browser Cache
To all those who frequently browse Chrome and Safari through their iPhones must clear the browser cachethat gets stored on the device without coming into users’ knowledge.
I bet you will be amazed to acknowledge the space that you are left with after cleaning the browser cache.
Well, you can THANKS later!!
Have A Look At The Default Message Settings By default, your iPhone device stores all the message you either send or receive.
This is convenient if you wish to read your 2-year-old messages. But who does that? No one, at least not in this 21st century when the connectivity is more prominent than your daily brunches. That sums up deleting these “forever” stored messages.
Through the settings, you can reach the pop-up asking to delete older messages. Command a yes and you are done.
Wipe Off Apps That Are Not Important It may seem the most common advice you come across frequently but you know that’s the most overlooked one. So, make it a practice to do a frequent scrutiny of the apps that are no more important.
It saves considerable space in your device to help you add new memories to your phone.
With iPhones, whatever you download paid or free can be re-downloaded since it is attached with your Apple ID. So, you can always find whatever was downloaded.
In case, the app sits idle at your home screen, it is ideal to delete it up.
To delete apps from home screen choose to tap the icon and hold it until it starts jiggling.
The jiggling of the app means you are in the editing mode. In order to move the app icon to the trash, tap on the “X “ which you will see sitting in the left corner.
Tap the same and drag the icon to delete it. Users could also drag an app to shift its position from a side to another.
Free Up Space By Deleting App Data
In your quest to find out ways that could help you add up space in your iPhone device, deleting app data could seem to resolve the storage issue.
App data is one of the culprits that takes enough space just to fill the device storage. Choosing to keep an eye on the space that any of the installed app is taking is good. And, for the same, you could choose to look again at Settings > General > iPhone Storageand click on the arrow beside one of the apps listed there.
This will show up how much data the app is using. And, how much additional space is used by the documents and data.
For a better understanding let me break down the pointers for you
*.Kindle app generally takes up 111.7 MB
*.Viewing the additional details will let you know about the actual storage space that is 195.5 MB
*.It suggests some additional programs are there that users unknowingly download with their app
*.So, tap the arrow next to the app in order to offload it.
