Check out these simple ways to free up space!


#1 Get rid of apps

The first thing you should do to to free up space on your phone is to delete apps that you don't use. There's no reason to keep those apps around, so just clean house! You'll have more space, plus your pages will become more organized.

#2 See what takes up the most space

You can find out exactly which apps are taking up the most space in your settings. That way, you can evaluate which apps you really need, vs. having more space available.


#3 Stop the downloads

If you subscribe to podcasts or other weekly series, you probably have a bunch of downloads that are piled up. You can go into the settings and stop automatic downloads for the future, but also delete old ones as well.


#4 Say goodbye to old messages

Some people are notorious text message savers. Texts can take up a surprising amount of space on your phone, but it only takes a few seconds to clear them out. Save the real important ones, and delete the rest!

#5 Turn off HDR

There is an option in your camera settings for making your photos better in non-ideal settings. HDR photos take up more space though. You can flip HDR off and keep "normal" photo options.

#6 Get your music setup

You absolutely do not need every single iTunes track you own saved on your phone. You can sign up for "iTunes Match" and have your library available through the cloud, and then delete any saved media.

#7 Become friends with the iCloud

Just like your tunes, if you delete whatever books you have on your phone, you'll still be able to find them in the cloud. If you've got things backed up, keep your phone free and clear of the clutter, and re-download only when you need something!
