I recently switched phones from a 32gb Samsung Note to a 16gb iPhone 6 Plus, and yes I took a huge plunge in storage. Sometimes I wonder what I was thinking, but here are 5 iPhone storage hacks that will change your life!
We all have games and applications that we download because we’re board or someone tells us it’s a must have! But if you’re downloading apps and games and getting bored after five minutes, make sure they’re not still clogging up your phone’s storage.
(2) Find out which apps are hogging the most space
Yes, Yes, and Yes, you can see which apps are taking up the most space in your iPhone. Go to Settings > General > Usage, and then click Manage Storage. Here you will be able to see which ones are using the most space.
(3) Delete those zillions of texts
Lets be real, we all horde text messages on our phones. In iOS 8, you can change your settings to automatically delete read texts after a month (instead of the auto setting ‘forever’). This will help prevent storage issues in the future.
(4) Stop saving your Instagrams automatically
I will admit, that I am a culprit of automatically saving pictures that I post on Instagram. Who doesn’t love those awesome filters? Honestly, its not needed and wastes tons of space so go into your settings and make sure you switch the ‘Save Original Photo’ toggle to off.
(5) Backup your photos and documents
Whether you upload content directly onto your laptop with a USB or Bluetooth, or use an app like Dropbox to store it online, getting your photos, videos and documents OFF your phone is the fastest way to free up your storage.
