Are you seeing those dreaded error messages when you want to download and install more apps to your iPhone or iPad? Tired of not being able to download more apps, or videos or songs just because you’ve run out of space?
Well, that can happen. But there’s an easy solution for that. Follow these suggestions and you could be on your way to free up quite a lot of space on the iPhone or iPad.
Most of the time, we keep unwanted apps. Apps like games which we’ve completed, or apps that we’ve used once and don’t feel like using again – the list is endless. Don’t keep them.
Head over to the Settings and tap on Usage.
iOS automatically pinpoints apps which use up a lot of space – and if you’re not very keen on using them, remove them.
One good thing about new Apple policy is, you can re-download the app (if it’s bought/downloaded already on your Apple ID) as many times as you want – which means even if you removed an app you want later, you can still get it.
Remove Music and Videos You Don’t Listen or Watch
The last time I checked my iPhone, I had this huge bunch of music I was always skipping, never playing the songs. May be you’ve got such a bunch too which can free up a lot of space. Not just that, but you could try removing videos (usually those HD ones) which occupy a lot of space too.
This is where most of the memory silently creeps away. While apps are the predominant reason, photos are also one of the other reasons which could help you recover a lot of space. With all the sync and back-up options these days, you can choose to keep just the most important photos on your iPhone or iPad and remove the rest – or back them up on your PC / Mac.
So there we go. Have you got any ideas that can help someone free-up space on their iPad or iPhone? Do share it here.
