Exhaust space in your iPhone or iPad? There’s a good way to free some up – and you will be back ready to go at top speed very quickly.
The iTunes Store is filled with high quality free apps, also it can be simple to fall under the trap of putting in and testing brand new ones constantly.
A number of them you’ll use every single day, but many of them you’ll ignore forever. And before very long they’ve stacked up, occupying memory (so when we’re speaking about games, that is one lot).
Here’s how to get which apps are eating in the most memory in your iPhone, iPad, or ipod device touch, and how you can eliminate them.
Look for and delete useless apps
1. Go to Settings> General> Usage. The first little bit of information you will see is the quantity of free memory and what’s already being used.
Immediately below this, you’ll discover the full listing of apps and services which are taking on memory in your iOS 7 device – they’ll be purchased in the “biggest” towards the tiniest when it comes to memory. If the memory is especially full, it might take one minute prior to the list seems.
2. Choose the application you want to uninstall from their email list. You’ll be proven at length just how much memory is occupied through the application and just how much the documents and knowledge associated with the application itself occupy too.
3. To delete, tap Delete Application after which read the deletion from the application and it is data and documents.
Continue doing this process until you’ve deleted all of the programs that its not necessary any more…then listen as your iPhone breathes a sigh of relief!
Sometimes its not necessary to delete the application
In some instances, you will not have to delete an application that appears to occupy lots of memory, you’ll simply need to delete the files or documents produced by using it.
Within the example below, the application itself only takes up 6. MB, however the pictures by using it occupy 688 MB.
Which means that, to release space, you can simply delete the photos taken with Panorama (that can be done by opening the application), and save the applying to re-utilize it later on.
More memory as well as your iPhone’s back on form
If you would like your iPhone or iPad to operate as quickly as it ought to, always make certain you aren’t filling the memory. As a guide, keep in mind that it is advisable to keep about 10% from the total memory free. For example, for those who have an apple iphone 16 GB, you need to leave 1.5 GB unused.
And don’t forget: frequently the best way to free memory is to transfer your photos towards the cloud by having an application like Dropbox.
How to delete mysterious 'other' data from your iPhone and iPad
jungkookologist: this got me like 10 gb of space. bless this video, honestly
AniMeiClay: +Jeon Cheng I internally screamed seeing ur profile picture lmao, nice to see other ARMYs having the same problems xD
SUCK MY DICK: jungkookologist still cant fix it
Von Clownstick: the great fucking apple doesnt have a fucking a CLEAR CACHE for apps???\nsmh
isma wurscht: +RandHaf no apple fucking sucks in this
ntstudio28: I think it's a scam by Apple for us to purchase more iCloud space!!! I almost did that because I was desperate for a fix. Thanks for this video!
Eduardo Gonzalez: I don't know what's happening I only have like 5 games and like 5 other apps I downloaded and it says my storage is full! I only used 11.4 GB
knightimer2: Be aware that the iOS takes up a lot of space. Like a few GBs. It's likely that you only have around 12 GB of storage on your phone. It sucks, but it is what it is. 16 GBs is too small for me now and I will always upgrade to the 64 or more. 16 is way too damn small for what we do these days with texts, songs, apps, and pictures. I have no pictures on my phone, 7 GBs of songs, and the rest is just a few apps. It won't even let me take one picture. \n\nApple is being a little shitty. They know 16GBs sucks ass and almost everyone on the planet needs more than that, yet they keep it an option so you pay more for the 64. They know 32GB would be perfect for most people which is why they don't offer it. Frustrating.
E Peralta: you can also use battery saver, it has an option called ''clean junk files'' Run that option until the app says that there is no more junk files to delete
Cult of Mac: Thanks!
Midnight Marauder: xd i know i download it today because it was free
Greg Buckingham: My phone says in settings that I have 300MB of space, but when I have my phone plugged into the computer, the computer screen says I have 4GB of space left lol. I don't understand D:
charielle abergas: OMG!! YES! ATLAST! MY "OTHER" files whatsoever has gone!!! thank you so much for uploading this video!!!!! :)
Cult of Mac: Thanks for watching, glad it sorted out your problems!
Zack: I have a question regarding data usage on my iPhone 5s. For the first two months everything was fine but now my data keeps going up rapidly when NO apps are being used. I disabled background app refresh, turned off cellular data for ALL APPS and iTunes as well as iCloud. I use WiFi when I'm at home but when I'm at work or something I'll obviously have to use data but the data literally goes up from me doing nothing! Like I'll go from 21.43 MB to 49.23MB in 10 minutes for seemingly no reason!
Carlos Diebold: i have a 16gb i phone (11,7gb) and about 6gb was used up by this
Amogh Jhamb: Same bro.In my case around 7 gb was taken by this data out of 11.4gb.Iphone sucks and I'm buying an android
MrSmoofist: The thing is that i delete apps and photos and what not a it won't bring back the memory….So now im afraid to delete apps because i wont be able to install them again…\nAnd if you can help… Yesterday i had 1.5GB…then when i woke up in the next morning, without downloading anything,texting or anything else, i suddenly had only 5MB, and after a few min a had no memory…WTF?!
SteamyOcelot: i had 8GB of 'other'… god damn apple…
MistaFussichannel: Whatsapp, messages, mail and photos hold a lot of data. Once you've deleted your photos they go into 'recently deleted' for 30 days then they delete themselves but you can delete them from recently deleted and free up space. I recovered 40gb of space!
