I love my iPhone 6. I use it almost all day and i can imagine a day without it. I have so much files and data stored inside it and even i have 64GB version, my memory is always almost full. I know that i can upgrade to 128GB version but is a bit expensive for me.
I can’t imagine how a heavy iPhone user can keep a 16GB version. I think that 16GB is too small to store all games, apps, music, photos etc. you like. I have had a 16GB version before and i used some methods and tricks to learn how to free space on iPhone.
So, in this post i am going to share learned tricks and methods i used in my old 16GB version iPhone. I even use this methods in 64GB version when i ran out of space.
How to Make Space on iPhone
1. Delete Apps you don’t need
The advantage of deleting apps is that you can free a lot of space with just one app.
To delete an app, hold its icon until it start giggling and then press the ” X ” at the icon corner.
2. Delete Apps that Waste a lot of Space
Go to Settings – General – Usage – Manage Storage. Wait until the list is loaded and then you will see top apps that waste your free space. Probably the first one may be Photos App or any HD Game you have downloaded.
If an app you don’t use often is more than 400MB of space just tap it and press Delete. You can download again if you need it.
3. Delete Documents & Data you don’t need from your Apps
After you go to Manage Storage, tap on one app that you think that stores extra data while using, for example in my iPhone, i have a YouTube Downloader, and i had downloaded couple YouTube videos but don’t need them anymore. The App together with Downloaded Videos was about 2GB so i went to the App and deleted the videos and now the app is only 56MB.
If you aren’t sure which app stores extra data, check them one-by-one.
4. Turn off Photo Stream
Go to Settings – Photos & Camera and disable Photo Stream. This will delete Photo Stream Album from your library but the photos stored there will not be available anymore in your other devices.
5. Keep only HDR Photos
6. Delete iBooks you aren’t reading
Go to iBooks App and delete the iBooks you have finished or you are not reading anymore. Even if you delete them, you can still download them if you need them again.
7. Delete Photos from Photo Editing Apps
There are some Photo Editing Apps that store photos into them, so use extra storage besides the standard storage.
If you use Photo Editing Apps, then you must have old photos stored in them. Go and open them and delete stored photos you don’t need anymore.

8. Delete old iMessages
Go to Messages App and delete your old messages and images. You will free up a lot of storage from doing this. Also, check if messages are using a lot of your storage by going to Settings – General – Usage – Manage Storage.
9. Delete Photos you don’t need
Go to your Photos App and select & delete all the photos and videos you don’t like or don’t want to be in your library anymore. I always delete unwanted photos and video and always achieve a lot of free space by doing this.
10. Backup Photos to DropBox or Photo Stream
Another way how to make space on iPhone is to backup your photos to third party services such as DropBox or just use PhotoStream. You will save a lot of space by doing this because photos and videos are the main storage eater in most of phones.
These were the methods i use How to Make Space on iPhone.
