As each new iPhone offers more capabilities, we learn to take advantage of these advances. However, that can leave you wondering how to get storage for your iPhone. Happily, though, freeing up space needn’t mean doing without. On the contrary, there are actually a number of easy things you can do to find more space on your cell. Read on for some ideas.
Kill Unnecessary Apps
It’s no secret that apps take up storage space. It’s also common that we all add apps we think are going to be handy but really never use. Consequently, the first line of defense is to delete them. For an easy fix, go to “Settings,” then “General,” then “Storage & iCloud Usage.” That’ll show you what space is being used. Then, under “Storage Settings,” go to “Manage Storage” to see an enumeration of how much space each app is using. Then simply delete the worst abusers that you never use.
Transfer Photos to the Cloud
We all love to take and collect photos on our iPhone, dressed in the best iPhone 7 wallet case, so they are with us all the time. However, so is the dwindling space. Luckily, unloading photos is easy. Simply store them on iCloud, which offers 5GB of free space. You can get more space for as little as $0.99 per month, or sign up for a photo storage service such as Google Photos, Dropbox, IceCream or ShoeBox.
Stop Storing Texts
True, comparatively, texts don’t take up a lot of space, but your new phone in its beautiful iPhone 7 Plus card holder may be set to keep them all forever. That’s a lot of space. Changing your setting to store them for 30 days, or even a year, makes a great difference.
Clear Your Cache and Temporary Files
If all else fails, take a moment to open up your wallet phone case and do a periodic clearing of your cache and temporary files. This always buys at least some short-term space.
In the end, all it takes is a few minutes to do all of these steps, and you’ll have a faster phone.
