How to Free Up Space on Your iPhone

Welcome to our guide on how to free up space on your iPhone! With all the apps, photos, and videos we store on our phones these days, it’s easy to run out of space quickly. But fear not, we have some tips and tricks to help you clear up some space and keep your phone running smoothly.

Check Your iPhone Storage

The first step is to check what’s taking up space on your iPhone. To do this, go to Settings, then General, and click on iPhone Storage. Give it a few seconds to load, and you’ll be able to see exactly what’s taking up space on your phone. You’ll likely find that apps and photos are taking up the most space.

Enable iCloud Storage

If photos are your biggest culprit, consider enabling photo storage on iCloud. This could save you over 10GB of space on your phone, and you’ll get 5GB of free storage on iCloud. If you need more space, you can pay for additional storage. Additionally, you can offload unused apps. Turn on the Offload Unused Apps option to save space without deleting app data and documents.

Review Your Apps

Review the space taken up by apps and websites on your phone. If an app like CamScanner is taking up too much space, consider deleting it, especially if you no longer need the photos saved in the app. Be sure to reinstall any apps you may have deleted to reclaim additional space. However, do not delete important apps that contain important data or passwords.

If there’s an app that you use infrequently, consider deleting it as well. This can free up space, and you can always download it again when you need it. Additionally, you can delete some of the data that an app has accumulated over time. For instance, you can delete old emails, contacts, and messages that take up additional space.


With the methods highlighted in this guide, you can clear up space on your iPhone and improve your phone’s overall performance. If you’re still running out of space, it may be time to upgrade to a phone with more storage.
