From images to videos and music to documents, we store everything on our iPhones. This is why it is important to make sure that your iPhone storage is not running low.
Low storage space will make your iPhone slow. To avoid that from happening you should free up some storage space. You see iPhones are a prized possession. As an iPhone owner, it’s your responsibility to take care of your phone.
Besides freeing up storage space, you should also consider customizing your iPhone. What we mean is that you can change the way the app icons appear.
For example, you can change the YouTube icon aesthetic or any other app that is installed. This feature is available on iOS 14 and higher versions. To take advantage of new features like this you must have sufficient storage space in your device.
If you are not sure how to free up storage space in an iPhone, you should refer to the guide below.
- Delete unused apps
Apps have become bigger in recent years. The best way to secure some free storage space is by removing the apps that are rarely used. This can be done from the iPhone Settings section.
We are not asking you to delete important apps. Just the ones that are not needed anymore or you don’t use.
- Delete large attachments
The videos and images you receive in the text are stored in your iPhone’s memory. This can occupy a lot of space depending on the size of the files. You can delete some of those large attachments that are needed anymore.
Go to the General section in the Settings app and access your iPhone storage. Scroll down and select Messages, and then Photos or Videos. Tap the Edit option in the upper-right corner and pick the photos you want to delete. After that tap, the trash can icon, and you are done.
- Delete videos and photos
We all love taking pictures and making videos. If you are running low on storage space, you may have to get rid of some of those photos and videos.
Open the Photos app and then to Library. Tap the option “All Photos” and tap “Select.” Now choose the videos and photos that you want to remove and tap the trash can icon. You can also delete multiple photos and videos at once. Just hold a photo and move your finger on the top.
How to check how much storage space is left on your iPhone?
To check the storage space status in your iPhone, follow these steps.
