It is normal for your iPhone is full of information that you do not need. In fact, according to a recent class action , you can not use the full capacity of a 16GB iPhone newly bought.
There are different ways to free up space and maximize the memory capacity of the phone. Here are 10 sure-fire formulas.
1. Review the apps you’re using
First, find what is taking up more space on your mobile. It is likely to be surprised.
Go to Settings, and then go to General> Usage> Storage.
At the top you will see how much space you have used and how much you have left.At the bottom is a list of applications sorted according to the space they occupy. (It takes a minute to load)
2. Beware downloads my internal
The numbers you see in the Storage panel include the space occupied by the application in combination with data inside. Some are small, but they can store a lot of files.
You can select any app to know the size of it and the downloaded files inside.
3. Delete the games that do not use
It is normal for gaming applications are small, but there are some who may occupy up to 1 GB to own 3-D graphics. Oregon Trail , for example, uses 1.2 GB of memory.
Sure you have downloaded games that do not open long or you have not even finished. Delete them. You can do it from the storage administrator.
If you want to play them again you can download it again from iTunes. Of course, your score will not be the same.
4. Delete all your audios and videos
Do you really listen you will return all podcasts stored on your iPhone? Okay, we do not judge, but you know that a 30 – minute audio can occupy 25 MB. So if you have many downloaded to your phone, the sum of these reaches significantly diminish the available memory.
Apple identifies what the latest audio reproduced and placed at the end of each of the lists. Just slide the screen to the left, select the file and delete it. It’s the same with the videos, only take up much more space.
5. Program your iPhone to your messages automatically expire
Do you really need talks a year ago? This option is very convenient as you avoid having to delete everything manually.
Go to Settings> Messages. In the Retain messages, select 30 days to 1 year. You can also select how long you want to save your videos or audios. You can schedule to be deleted after receiving two minutes or never.
6. Use Google+ or Dropbox to store your images
You probably do not want to delete all photos from your phone and actually do not have to. But to free some space, you can create an automatic backup of your gallery and place it in a storage system.
We recommend using the Google+ app not only because you have unlimited storage space (for pictures with a 2048×2048 pixels less than size which includes all performed with your mobile- and videos less than 15 minutes), but because it is free.
All you have to do is download the Google+ app, create an account on Google (if you do not have it yet) and select Automatic Backup in the Settings. Be sure to check that the backup is only created when you are connected to Wi-Fi, but use your mobile data. You can also use Dropbox or Apple iCloud .
7. Stop using streaming My Photos
My Photos option streaming automatically synchronizes the last 1,000 photos you have on your iOS devices. Unless you really need all the time to share images from your iPad to your iPhone, turn it off.
Just enter adjustments, down to Pictures and camera, and turn off the option My Photo Stream.
8. Keep only photos HDR
If you have enabled the option to make your photos are automatically saved to a backup … unset (see the trick No. 6), so you will not ocuparás unnecessary space.Surely you’ve noticed that your phone can store twice the same picture. That’s because you’re using HDR ( High Dynamic Range ). Look at the difference:
This usually happens if you are always on the HDR enabled. The camera settings are the best tools to get images in low light and many shadows. If you chose to photograph in HDR, then you do not need the normal picture.
So go to Settings> Photos & Camera. Swipe until you find the Retain regular photo and unset.
9. Sign up for a service offstreaming music
The days when you almacenabas all your songs on a device over. Now you only need to download the albums that you really love and hear the rest of the form online .
If you’re a fan of iTunes, join Apple Music. For less than nine euros per month, you can have all the songs available on iTunes, a global radio playing 24 hours a day, music videos in high definition and without ads, and the possibility create custom playlists.
10. Explore the other section of iTunes and restore your phone
“Other” is located in the iTunes store tab . This includes your email, music and your browsing data. Sometimes, files are corrupt and take up more space than they should.The easiest way to avoid this is to create a backup of your information and restoring your iPhone.
Enter iTunes creates a backup on your computer and select Create a backup now.Then select restore iPhone.
