Step-by-step instruction!

Hello everyone! I will start with the most important and my favorite "Many iPhone users face that there is too little space on the phone - it is extremely necessary to release as much memory as possible on their device, otherwise something terrible will occur."

The perfect start of the article! No? Strange, because this is how most instructions on the Internet begin.

Well, okay, they turned a little bit, let's go to the point. Today's note will be a step-by-step manual who personally enjoys the author of this blog, when it comes with a question: "Something on my iPhone remains too little free space. I want to quickly free the memory! See what you can do? "

And you can do this ...

Step 1. Analyze and delete

First of all, you need to see what exactly the memory of your iPhone takes.

To do this, open "Settings - Basic - IPhone Storage", scroll down the screen, look at the statistics of the use of the repository and ...

We think for a long time on what happens here at all? Why do some programs and applications occupy so much space?!

Looked? Surprised? We begin to fight this disgrace!

It is clear that everyone's different use scenarios are different - each of us has a memory "eaten" with its programs. That is why let's consider the most popular reasons for "Jora" of the free space:

  1. Photo. Is the film takes a lot of memory? It's time to analyze its "Composition" and remove all unnecessary (blurred and dual photos, unnecessary screenshots, section "Recently deleted") - Make a "general cleaning". You will be pleased, and extra megabytes will be liberated on the iPhone. Photos occupy a lot of space
  2. Music and podcasts. Similar to the previous item. Look at what music no longer deserves your attention, but still takes place on your iPhone - remove it. Podcasts go there too :)
  3. Programs and applications. It seems to me that many have such applications that we do not use, but ... "They seem to be needed!". So here - not needed. In conditions of memory deficit, it is better to get rid of them. Unused applications occupy an excess place
  4. Data programs and applications. In the process of using the program and the application, the data is accumulated (cache, other information) that can take a huge number of space! Unfortunately, in the iPhone there is no way to remove the program cache separately from the program itself. Here is such a wonderful system! Therefore, the only way to clean the application's memory is to reinstall it. Yes, it is not always convenient, but ... in a different way.
  5. Correspondence (SMS, IMESSAGE, WhatsApp, Viber, Telegram and other messengers). ABOUT! It seems to me that this is the most popular reason for the lack of space on the iPhone. Agree, each of us has a person who constantly sends (forwards) to us pictures, widgets, postcards, etc. And these things are great "eat" free memory. Try to remove a couple of such correspondence - on your iPhone it is quickly free to frees weight free space! Correspondence in messengers occupy a lot of space on the iPhone
  6. Safari. In the process of using the browser retains a huge amount of information. If you see that it has become too "fat", it can be cleaned. Open the "Settings - Safari", click "Clean the history and data of sites." Safari "Eats" free space on the iPhone
  7. Mail. Actively use email? Download attachments, graphics, documents, etc.? It can also lead to "scoring an internal drive" of your device. Delete letters not necessarily. If we are talking about a standard client, it sometimes helps the famous way - "go out and go" into the account. Cash and temporary files will be cleaned, and the memory is free.
  8. Downloadable, but not installed iOS version. Sometimes in the statistics of the repository use you can meet the mysterious item "iOS", which occupies a decent number of space. What it is? This is the firmware file that has been loaded, but not yet installed on your device. What to do with him? Its (update) can either install or delete. Memory will be free - everything will be fine. IOS firmware file takes a lot of space on the iPhone

In general, all of the above can be described by one brief phrase - you need to clean up. Open each application that occupies a lot of space according to statistics, and deal with what happens:

  • Or delete unnecessary data manually.
  • Or perform reinstallation of the application (if it is, of course, perhaps).

Did you delete everything? All cleaned? But there is still not enough places? Going further!

Step 2. Download photo in ICloud

With a sufficient number of space in ICloud (I remind you that only 5 gigabytes are issued for free), all your photos can be sent to the cloud.

This is done like this:

  1. Open "Settings - Photo".
  2. Activate "ICLOUD".
  3. Select "Store Optimization".

Photo Storage Optimization on iPhone

What's happening?

Cool? Not bad. But you need to remember one inconvenience - now, in order to view the photo and video, the iPhone should be access to the Internet. Without a network, you will only see the very miniatures in low resolution.

Step 3. Disable "Photostream"

Not anywhere from the settings of the photo and look at whether you have activated the "Photostream" option.

Need more free space? "Phototypes" will have to turn off!

Photos flow spends free memory on the iPhone

After all, with the active function "Photostream" on the iPhone "load" photos from all your devices. Thus, the film "expands", and free memory is reduced.

Step 4. Take advantage of the "Download Unused" option.

An interesting feature that allows you to free a little loose place at the expense of rarely used applications.

How it works:

  1. Activate the option (Settings - iTunes Store and App Store).
  2. Rarely used applications and games "disappear" from your iPhone.
  3. For their "appearance" will be required to connect to the Internet.

Download unused applications and add free space

So. And how does this differ from the usual removal?

  • The application label remains on the device (next to it appears the "Cloud with an arrow" icon) - You do not need to search for it in the App Store.
  • If you believe Apple, then user information inside the program does not disappear anywhere (unlike the full removal of the program).

In general, the thing is funny, but it is necessary to clearly understand how it works. " And, again, the Internet is required.

Step 5. Clear the section "Other"

Perhaps this is the most common cause of the "incomprehensible filling" of the iPhone memory.

"Other" - where are you? How can I find you?

This section can be seen in "Settings - basic - iPhone Storage" or when connecting iPhone to iTunes.

Section "Other" in iPhone

What is stored in it?

  1. These informal applications.
  2. Unaccounted cache.
  3. Documents and files that are downloaded to applications.
  4. Much.

How to deal with all this?

On my blog already have a similar instruction!

Small spoiler

The most reliable way is to create a backup of iTunes, restore the firmware, restore the backup.

Although ... There are other options - read how to delete the "Other" section on your iPhone.

Step 6. Bonus (Updated!)

The article was published and then the author remembered ...

Good thoughts comes Apla © Folk Creativity

After all, I already wrote about one secret way to quickly clear the iPhone memory - a couple of simple actions and everything will be "ok". As they say, be sure to pay attention!


The text turned out to be big

For once!

Therefore, summarize:

  1. The memory itself does not disappear anywhere - see and analyze the statistics of using the repository of your iPhone. Delete, clean, get rid of unnecessary information.
  2. "Optimization of the ICloud repository" and "shut up unused" - cool options that will help free a little (or a lot) of memory, but you need to be ready for the fact that without access to the Internet you will be a little more suffering.
  3. "Photostream" is a wonderful thing for those who have an iPhone with a large amount of memory. Places little? Think about the disconnection of this function.
  4. The "Other" section is incomprehensible thing, removing which, you, as a rule, release a decent amount of memory on your iPhone.

I hope that this step-by-step instruction will help your iPhone - his memory will be cleaned, it will work faster and generally will learn to earn a lot of money (I wanted to joke, but then I remembered that such an opportunity is there!). Be careful and everything will work out. Good luck!

Looking at the contents of the gadget, we see unfamiliar files and folders, which we fear - what if they are needed for the work of a smartphone or tablet.


In fact, it is possible to release a place on a mobile device without resorting to removing important data. MacDigger offers 10 tips how to free up the memory on the iPhone and iPad.

1. Clear Safari history and Website data

Clear the history of visits and cookie files from Safari by selecting "Settings"> Safari> "Clean the history and data of sites." To delete all stored information from the browser, select "Settings"> Safari> "Add-ons"> "Site data"> "Delete all data".


2. Disable photo thoughts

The photo stream service collects the last 1000 photos from the library and distributes them to all devices. The technology actively spends valuable megabytes, so in the event of a shortage of memory it should be turned off. You can do this in the Settings> ICloud> photo.


3. Include the ICloud Media ICLOUD

The ICLOUD media library service mechanism provides for the possibility of synchronizing an unlimited amount of content through the cloud. With the launch of the image and video service, in full, can be unloaded into the Apple cloud storage. The originals of these files will no longer be on the iPhone and iPad, which will save space. You can activate the iCloud media library service in Settings> ICloud> Photo.


4. Delete and reinstall applications

During the application, the application is rapidly increasing due to temporary data. As a result, gigabytes on the iPhone and iPad are literally melted in their eyes. Go to Settings> Main> Statistics> Storage to see the list of the most "resource-intensive" programs. Unnecessary applications can be deleted, important - reinstall.


5. Delete tracks and listen to music in streaming mode

Apple allows you to broadcast music downloaded from iTunes via icloud - download it and stored on the device is not at all necessary. Remove unnecessary tracks from the iPhone and listen online. You can also save space using cutting services, such as Yandex.Music or ZVOOQ.


6. Delete big correspondence in iMessage

Active sending photos and video through iMessage quickly reduces the available space on the iPhone and iPad. Deleting in the application of large correspondence will make it possible to release a place in the device's memory.


7. Updated on the latest IOS version

If you do not have the newest version of iOS and you do not practice Jailbreak, it's time to go to the current version of IOS. In the latest releases, Apple corrected errors, improved the stability of the system and increased productivity on old devices. In addition, the latest updates exempt space on the iPhone and iPad. Go to Main> Updates to check for new versions.


8. Delete screenshots

Users iPhone and iPad often make screenshots. As a rule, screenshots occupy no more than 300 KB in the device's memory, but most often forget to remove unnecessary images. So they gradually "breed" in the photo gallery, occupying more and more space. In such situations, Screeny comes to revenue. The application for iPhone and iPad is specially optimized in order to recognize screenshots, as well as delete them from the device.


9. Delete temporary files

Many applications even after you deleted them, leave there after temporary files. You can solve the problem using the PhoneExpander application. This is a free solution designed to clean the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch from the extra data. The utility is simple and understandable in management and deletes unused, as well as temporary files, unnecessary applications, music and photos, providing a faster mobile device operation and freeing the place on its internal flash memory.


10. Clear Offline Safari List

Function for deferred reading Safari spends free memory. In case of its use, the amount of cache grows very quickly to several gigabytes. To clean the data, open Settings> Main> Statistics> Storage> Safari, click Edit and remove the offline list. Clearing the cache will not entail the removal of objects from the list to read.

The next step will be the choice of shooting formats. Modern Apple smartphones support two options: "highly efficient" and "most compatible". In the first case, we are talking about HEIF (photo) and HEVC or H.265 (video) that take up to two times less place in memory due to modern content coding mechanisms. In the second case, we speak about JPEG and H.264 - they are up to two times more, but are still more common. However, when transferring data in the HEIF and HEVC format, the iPhone can automatically convert them into the formats that the other gadget supports.

How to do it:

  • Open the "Settings", go to the "Camera" section, lower the video recording quality in the Video Record menu and "Record. video";

Summing up: Is there a meaning in all

Today, there is still enough iPhone with a repository volume of 16 and 32 GB, which are in the use of Apple fans from different parts of the country. It is quite difficult to live with them today, but still possible. It is enough just to transfer the majority of data in online mobile Internet speeds for this already enough.

Materials on the topic:

Restart device

You will be surprised, but the usual reboot also helps to clean the disk space. But the thing is that during the start of iOS deletes caches and temporary files. Reload iPhone or iPad easy: just clamp the Power and Home buttons and hold them until you see an apple on the screen.

Deleting caches through settings

Some applications allow you to delete cached data from system settings. Unfortunately, IOS does not distinguish between this opportunity, so you have to go to each and check yourself.

How to free up memory - Remove the cache through the settings

Open the "Settings" → "Main" → "Using storage and iCloud" and click "Manage". Then I alternately select each app in the list and check how much the data is occupied by the data that is stored in it. For example, I have a read-up list of Safari, I have up to 140 megabytes that can be cleaned without any consequences. We click "change" and mercilessly remove. Similarly, we do with other applications (it can be done with "music", "video", "podcasts").

Deleting caches through the cleaning function in applications

Yes, such a function is provided in applications of bona fide developers. As an example, you can bring Tweetbot.

How to free up memory - deletion of caches

The day in your ribbon flashes a huge amount of media files that settle in cache. For convenience, the developers provided the opportunity to clean it easily. You can also delete the cache in the VK client, Pocket and other applications that are actively downloading files from the Internet.

Reinstalling applications

If you see in the statistics of the repository use that the application takes a lot of space, but it is impossible to clean the cache separately, you will have to delete it with the application.

how to free up memory - reinstalling applications

Just delete and re-install the application, and the problem is guaranteed to disappear. Just do not forget before deleting save content from the application. Re-install conveniently from the "Shopping" tab in the App Store. And so as not to remember the location of the icons on the desktop, make a screenshot before removal.

Resetting and Content

Yes, you all rightfully read. It is sometimes easier to start with a blank sheet than to spend time in search of emours of a free space. In the end, there is nothing terrible in full data erasure: applications can be quickly renovated, and contacts, calendars, notes, and so on pulled out from icloud.

how to free up memory - reset settings

If you decide to such a step, go to "Settings" → "Main" → "Reset" and boldly press "erase the entire content and settings." Yes, I almost forgot: in no case do not restore the device from the backup! Be sure to set up as a new one, and it does not cover the garbage to move back.

Cleaning with special utilities

Do not want to bother? Well, there is a way for you. These are special cleaners and file managers for iOS devices with the corresponding function. I can call at least four such utilities:

How to free up memory - utilities

Choose any, plug your iOS device, scan the file system and remove all extra garbage.

Some more preventive measures

And now about how to avoid fast memory fill. I do not urge you to disable everything and everything, but to give up the functions that you do not use will be reasonable, right?

  • Turn off the storage of HDR originals ("Settings" → "Photo and Camera" → "Leave the original").
  • Clean the history and cookie Safari ("Settings" → Safari → "Clean the history and data of sites").
  • Disable the improved voiceover voice quality ("Settings" → "Main" → "Universal Access" → VoiceOver → "Speech").
  • Disconnect system languages ​​that do not use ("Settings" → "Basic" → "Language and region").
  • Leave the background update only for the desired applications ("Settings" → "Basic" → "Content Update").
  • Remove the mail accounts used and add them again.
  • Clean the Siri cache, turning off and re-turning the feature in the settings.
  • Remove the "recently remote" album in the gallery.
  • Change the video recording quality to 1080p 30 FPS or 720P 30 FPS.

Here, perhaps, that's all. We hope these tips will help you free a couple of gigabytes and take them with something helpful.

It happened - photos and applications finally scored the memory of your precious iPhone. Do not insert a memory card, nothing to remove. But you can clean the phone without unnecessary nerves!

Cloud storage

Yes, we understand that to disassemble 20 GB of photos and videos is an unbearable task. Just transfer them to a cloud and remove them with a relaxed soul phone. The most common and reliable cloud storage facilities:

  • Google Drive - allows you to store, edit, synchronize and use files together with other users. If you use the google-mounted - perfect.
  • Yandex.Disk is a service for storing and transferring files between devices.
  • ICLOUD - Cloud Storage from Apple. Already have in your iPhone, but the available amount of memory in the free version is only 5 GB.
  • Dropbox - File hosting with cloud storage, file sync and client program.
  • OneDrive - Microsoft service for storing documents, synchronization and exchange between users.

Each repository has paid and free versions. Often the paid version offers a larger online storage. Details need to be clarified in a specific service section. It is worth noting that unloading files is more convenient through services. It does not apply only to icloud - to use it, it is enough to go to the iPhone settings.

Photo and video

What else can we do with endless media files? But what:

  • Clear the gallery from unnecessary materials and do not forget about the "recently deleted" folder. It is difficult and hurt, so take on armament of applications that remove repeated pictures:
  1. Gemini Photos (free);
  2. Remo Duplicate Photos Remover (free);
  3. Duplicate Photos Fixer (Paid).
  • Disable "Photostream" - the service transmits the last 1000 photos to all devices tied to one ICloud account. How to disable: "Settings" - "icloud" - "Photo".
  • Include "ICloud Media". So photos and video will automatically be unloaded into the cloud. The parameter is changed in the same section where the "Photostream" was turned off.

  • Change settings for HDR shots. To the gallery there were no identical photos and cleaning occupied less time, act according to the following scheme: "Settings" - "Camera" - we remove the "leave the original".

  • Reduce video resolution. If you do not remove the masterpieces of cinema, then the compression of quality from 4k to 1080p will help reduce the size of the video by 2.5 times. At the same time, the strong difference is not caught as an eye. To do this, go: "Settings" - "Camera" - "Video Recording".

Unused applications. Shipment and deletion

With media files figured out, now it's about applications. With the arrival of iOS 11 in the iPhone, the "Shipment" function of unnecessary programs appeared. If the shredded object is to restore - all information in it will be in the state in which it was shredded. In addition, you can set automatic shipment of unused programs.

We go to the "Settings" - "App Store" - "shut out unused".

You can download the applications yourself, for this we act according to the following scheme: "Settings" - "Basic" - "IPhone Storage" - Select the program that we will shut up, tapam on it - "download the application".

The program icon during shipment remains on the Home screen and in the "Application Library", but it looks different:

To restore the shredded app, you need to click on it. After that, the application of the App Store application will start.

If the program is shredded, only the "application size" is deleted, and the documents and data remain. If you are exactly sure that the application you do not need - it is better to remove it at all.

Clearing cache applications

The remaining working programs would be nice to clean the cache. We turn the following scheme: "Settings" - "App Store" - We cancel the automatic application downloads and their update.

Since with each update the weight of the application increases, the most winning option is to delete it and download it again instead of the standard update of the program. This method is suitable for messengers, social networks and games.

In addition, automatic caching is in the settings of the messengers themselves. If you cancel it, control the volume of programs will become easier.

Separately, we walk on system applications: books and music. Each downloaded book or file in iBooks occupy a place, so there will be no cleaning of partitions.

A similar situation with music, if you delete downloaded songs - places will be much larger. This applies to those applications that are available offline listening, for example, Apple Music, Spotify and others.

Cleaning cache browsers

The place on the phone takes absolutely everything, even the story of the browser, so you need to configure the work of Safari, Google, Yandex and other services.

Clean the Safari history and turn off the auto storage of tabs in "Offline mode": "Settings" - "Safari" - "Clean the history and data" + Cancel "Autoship Offline".

Do not forget about the offline tabs themselves in Safari. The deferred reading function spends free memory. The amount of cache will grow very quickly to several gigabytes. To clean the data: "Settings" - "Basic" - "iPhone" repository - "Safari" - Look at the left "offline list" and delete.

A similar procedure can be repeated constantly with each browser.

Messages and mail

Each message takes memory as a letter in the mail. We remove unnecessary correspondence, attachments, MMS and SMS (well, suddenly you still use them).

Mailboxes are best clean and disassemble (not forgetting about the "basket"). The same application occupies a place and quite a lot. Since it is difficult to clear the cache "Mail", just delete the application and download re-either send letters through the browser.

Temporary files

When documents and applications are deleted from the iPhone, there are "temporary files" - the garbage that needs to be removed. To part with such files, after each cleaning the smartphone, do not forget to restart it.

Updating system via iTunes

To maximize the device's memory, install the firmware best through iTunes. If you download updates to the "air" on the iPhone, temporary files are created and saved, which will not disappear after the reboot. However, when IOS is installed via iTunes, the firmware is unpaved on the computer, and temporary files do not fall on the smartphone.

It is equally important to delete already downloaded iOS updates. Backup copies also occupy a lot of space, just deal with them.

We went through the main parameters that will help clean the memory and adjust the stable operation of the iPhone. To make sure that the cleaning has passed successfully, it is worth checking the "iPhone storage" in the settings and follow the memory fill statistics.

Change iPhone

Finally, the easiest and most obvious way is to buy an iPhone with a large amount of memory. For example, 64 GB for those who have recently sitting on 32 will seem down by a bottomless pot.

But if you are an instaboker, youtuber or just a fan to make three hundred pictures on the day and install all top games, it will take a heavy artillery. The benefit of the iPhone line has models with a volume of built-in memory up to 512 GB.

Hello, friends!

This article for all who lack memory in the iPhone or iPad. Under memory, we mean the iPhone storage. Still say "not enough space" ...

Memory ended! Guard!
Memory ended! Guard!

I will share a few steps (Some can be known), to clean the internal storage of the device.

Before the beginning, Look and write down how much you have free space in the iPhone. So that after you could compare 😉

So let's go:

1. We look how much space now in the iPhone (all steps equally apply to iPad)

Settings -> About this device

Check the available capacity capacity
Check the available capacity capacity

2. Optimize the contents of ICloud

Observe icloud. The space in it is necessary for you to accommodate the original photos and other information from which you can release local iPhone memory or iPad. Let's check that we have in iCloud and is it possible to remove something from there.

How and why use iCloud is described here .

First of all get to backups, Bacapov . Probably if you changed the device, copies of the old device are still stored in iCloud. For example, I found a backup from my old iphone 6s and successfully removed it (leaf off the carousel):

Go to the ICloud settings
Go to the ICloud settings
We go into ICloud services
Go to the ICloud settings
Poke in storage icloud
Go to the ICloud settings
We see backup copies
Go to the ICloud settings
Old backup found! Remove!
Go to the ICloud settings

3. Check the photo optimization settings

Go to Settings -> iCloud (pumping into your image) -> photo

Check that the checkbox is installed "Storage Optimization" . If not - I recommend switching to this mode. The originals of the photo will fly into the cloud, and the place on the iPhone / Tablet is free.

4. For the future - save space when recording video

Pass Settings -> Camera -> Video Record And look at video recording options.

You may not need video in format 4k 60. Personnels per second. And it is right, for they occupy as much as 400 megabytes per 1 minute :

Personally, I use 1080p 60 frame / s In this case, the video is very smooth (due to 60 frames per second), and sufficiently high resolution. Wherein, Small size.

Pick up the appropriate option.

5. Check the volumes of information in applications and remove unnecessary

Returning to the iPhone repository view mode We see the following picture. Namely, we see that the survey recorders are music, photos, files, content WhatsApp, voice recorder entries, vidos in the drone shooting program, iMovie and Netflix cache. It's so for me. And how are you?

Walking on all these applications, I was able to release a significant number of space.

What can you do in my example:

  • breake down With media content (photo, video) in chat rooms Whatsapp (and other messengers);
  • Remove old video from the photo program;
  • erase Duplicates Photos ( Unfortunately, do not do without additional programs, for example, PowerPhoto s)
  • erase Screenshots In the photo program, and other "trash" pictures. To do this, it is convenient to use the photo viewing mode by albums;
  • erase Remote Files from the files program;
  • Delete Duplicated voice recorder records;
  • Delete old projects iMovie. on the smartphone (forgot about them at all);
  • cache Netflix. (or other series of watching films in Offline), if you look at the iPhone shows are not going to ...
  • Clear Baskets Applications Sberdisk or other cloud storage

I think you understand the basic principle.

Need to walk on the content of applications , understand that much no longer need, and remove it. Or reset to backup external media, in the archive, and after removing from the smartphone / tablet.

If you spend on the actions described for about an hour I am sure that you can free a very significant place in your gadget. Especially if you did not do this for a long time.
