Free Up Space On Your IPhone With These 6 Tricks


We’ve all been there: The perfect photo opportunity presents itself, you whip your phone out to take that amazing picture and there it is—that dreaded gray box appears on your screen telling you that you don’t have enough available storage to take the photo.

Really?!? So, the next thing most people do is start frantically deleting apps or a few random photos in hopes to have just enough room to squeeze in that new photo you’re dying to take. Or maybe two if you’re lucky.

But, the answer to your storage issue isn’t simply deleting a few photos or smaller apps. Thankfully, though, there are a few things you can do to help solve your iPhone storage problem.

2. Load Photos To A Cloud Service

Chances are you’ve discovered that your photos and videos are eating up the most space. Thankfully, though, there are plenty of ways to free up this space on your phone without losing all of your wonderful memories.

Apps like Google Photos or Apple Photos (or even Amazon Prime) allow you to upload your photos to a “cloud” so you can then delete them from your phone—and free up all of that space for new photos and videos!

Another option is to use a gadget like the iXpand Flash drive made for iPads and iPhones. Similar to a flash drive for a computer, it allows you to safely store your photos.
