Whenever there is a limited amount of available space, what happens is that you cannot capture new photos or videos, nor can you install new applications while the backup will also not be possible. But do make a note that the phone definitely has a lot of space that you can reclaim back through the following steps.
Here’s a step-by-step guide to clearing your iPhone storage:
- Check your iPhone storage usage: Go to Settings > General > iPhone Storage. Here, you’ll see a breakdown of your storage usage by app and category.
- Delete unused apps: Tap on the app you want to delete and select “Delete App.” You can also offload unused apps, which will delete the app but keep its documents and data. To offload an app, tap on the app and select “Offload App.”
- Clear cache and data: Some apps, such as Safari, store cache and data on your iPhone. To clear Safari cache and data, go to Settings > Safari > Clear History and Website Data. To clear cache and data for other apps, go to Settings > General > iPhone Storage > select the app > Offload App.
- Delete old photos and videos: Go to Photos and select the photos and videos you want to delete. Tap the trash can icon and select “Delete.” You can also use the “Recently Deleted” folder to permanently delete photos and videos.
- Optimize storage: Go to Settings > Photos and enable “Optimize iPhone Storage.” This will automatically replace full-resolution photos and videos with smaller versions to save space.
- Use iCloud storage: Use iCloud storage to store your photos, videos, and other data. Go to Settings > iCloud > Photos and enable “iCloud Photos.” You can also use iCloud to back up your iPhone data and free up storage.
