If your iPhone or iPad is running out of space, you can free up some room by deleting apps that you don’t use often. You can also delete files that you don’t need, such as old email attachments, text messages, and photos.

To see how much space you have left on your device, go to the Settings app and select General > Storage & iCloud Usage. If you need more space, you can buy a larger storage plan from Apple. If you have an iCloud account, you can also free up space by deleting files from your iCloud storage. To do this, go to the Settings app and select iCloud > Storage > Manage Storage. Select the files that you want to delete and then tap the Delete button.

Move photos and videos to the cloud or an external hard drive

One way to free up space on your device is to move photos and videos to the cloud or an external hard drive. You can use iCloud Photo Library or a third-party app like Google Photos to store your photos and videos in the cloud. You can also use an external hard drive to back up your photos and videos. To do this, connect the external hard drive to your computer and then open iTunes. Select your device in the iTunes sidebar and click on the “Photos” tab. Tick the “Sync photos from” box and select the external hard drive. Click on the “Apply” button and your photos and videos will be backed up to the external hard drive.

Disable location services for apps that don’t need it

Some apps use location services to track your location and provide you with relevant information. However, this can also use up a lot of space on your device. To disable location services for an app, go to the Settings app and select Privacy > Location Services. Scroll down to the app that you want to disable location services for and tap on the “Location Services” switch. If the app doesn’t need your location, the switch will be in the OFF position.

Disable iCloud Photo Library

iCloud Photo Library is a feature that stores all of your photos and videos in the cloud so that you can access them from any device. However, this can use up a lot of space on your device. To disable iCloud Photo Library, go to the Settings app and select iCloud > Photos. Toggle the switch for iCloud Photo Library to the OFF position and your photos and videos will be stored on your device instead of in the cloud.

Delete old text messages

Text messages can also take up a lot of space on your device. To delete old text messages, go to the Settings app and select Messages. Scroll down to the “Keep Messages” section and select the time period that you want to keep messages for. Tap on the “Delete” button and all of your old text messages will be deleted.
