– Running low on space? Let your iPhone handle it:
iPhone owners have grappled with storage issues for years thanks to Apple selling inadequate 16GB base models and still no microSD card support. It’s taken its time, but the company is finally doing something about this. Navigate your way to Settings > General > iPhone Storage.
This will help you find a breakdown of what’s hogging up your space and how to get rid of the issue. You’ll see a very useful Offload Unused Apps feature that lets your iPhone manage storage for you. Enabling it will automatically remove rarely-used apps when you don’t have room.
The documents and data associated with these applications will be saved, so you can always download them again and pick up where you left off. If you don’t want Apple to decide which apps to eliminate, you can scroll down the list of applications and choose which ones to send to the gallows.
Just tap on one of them and you’ll see Offload App and Delete App options. Of course, this is a poor alternative to a problem that could be fixed by including an expandable storage slot. We hope you’re listening, Apple!
