If we talk about Android, it is easy to find dozens of applications that clean the storage, as well as several ways to access the root of the phone and be intrusive with the files. iOS works differently, although we can also pass the broom to clean the phone thoroughly.
Let it teach you How to free up space on your iPhone, not only to eliminate everything that you do not need, but to optimize the use of the terminal itself, so that you can live with storage capacities that are not the maximum.
Remove applications and have them deleted for you
Installing and forgetting dozens of applications is a fundamental point, but we have to comment. Delete all unused applications. If you don’t remember when you used an application, read the section IPhone storage you will find the date you used each of your apps,
The option to delete unused applications is more than useful to automatically keep iPhone clean
Chances are, you’ll be surprised that there are applications that you may never have opened and that don’t take up space. In order for the iPhone to do this automatically, you can activate the option in this section Remove unused apps, a tool that automatically removes applications that you haven’t used for a long time. This option Save the documents and data of these appsIf you need it again, this content will not be lost.
Beware of WhatsApp
Messaging applications are one of the main reasons why internal memory is becoming scarce. Audios, photos, videos, GIFs etc. In the case of WhatsApp we can control How much space do each conversation’s files occupy?to remove data that is not relevant to us.
- Go to the WhatsApp settings
- Data and storage
- Use storage
- Click on the conversation
- Delete the data you are considering
It’s time to go to the cloud and delete local files
Using the cloud or continuing local storage is undoubtedly a personal decision. However, given that we have free alternatives with minimal compression and cheap iCloud plans, we recommend uploading our multimedia content to the cloud.
By moving to the cloud, on the one hand, we can have all of our files available on different devices. It also saves us space in the internal memory
Why? first of all because it serves as a backup, If you lose your phone, steal it, break it, or become inaccessible in any way, you won’t lose your precious memories. On the other hand, for example on Google Photos, if you change your cell phone, be it iPhone or Android, All of your photos will still be there, just by downloading the application.
We already say that Google photos It’s one of our main alternatives, but betting on the iCloud plans isn’t a bad idea either. A copy of your photos is automatically created so you can enjoy them on all your Apple devices. By using the cloud, you can minimize the amount of storage your gallery consumes, because many times we can run out of space if we have a lot of photos and videos.
Delete live photos
Live photos are a very eye-catching feature of the iPhone, where the phone takes multiple photos instead of just one to create short video clips. As expected This takes up more space than a single photoIf we don’t use this feature too often, we can turn it off when we take the photos.
The live photo icon is located in the upper right corner of the camera interface. We just have to click on this icon so that Live photos are disabled,
Delete the ‘Others’ data
Some iPhone owners have suffered from it the section “Others have skyrocketed”, practically fills the internal memory. In this section of ‘Other’ there is the history of files, cookies, temporary files, system data, voices from Siri and others.
If we want to delete the space that ‘others’ occupy, we have nothing else than Delete application data individually Since the stored data is an area in which iOS automatically saves data, we cannot delete it per se.
In the worst case: restore the iPhone
If you still have no way to get rid of the “Other” area or the situation is no longer portable, you can restore your iPhone at any time. From the settings in generallywe will see Reset Option, To completely clean the iPhone, we have to choose Delete content and settings, We also recommend not doing a restore and reconfiguring the iPhone from scratch as in many cases restored backups can cause problems.
