With the presence of high-resolution photos, great games, songs and high-definition videos we want to have all of them in our phones. Most of these items tend to take up a lot of space thus leaving you with a deficit. To help you out, here are ways of freeing some space on your phone:
Delete any apps that you aren’t using
It’s common to have an app that you only used once or have already replaced it with a better one. You should go through the apps and delete any that you aren’t using.
One of the apps that you should consider deleting is a games app. While a games app is small, it contains a lot of files that take a lot of space. For example, it’s common for gaming apps to take up to 1 GB.
To delete the app that you don’t want you should tap and hold on the icon and then delete it.
Set your messages to expire automatically
There are some phones that are having a feature that allows you to set the length of time that you want to keep the message. If you don’t like going back to your old messages you should set the messages to expire after only a few days, but if you like reading your old messages you should set them to expire after a long time such as one year.
Make use of cloud technology
If you have large files that you don’t want to delete in order to free up some space, you should consider backing them to a cloud storage system.
There are many cloud systems that you can use. Two of the best that you can use are: Google+ and dropbox. Experts recommend that you use Google + as it not only gives you unlimited storage space for your photos, it’s also free.
Turn off photo stream
If you have an iPhone or iPad you most likely have the photo stream feature that has all the photos that you have taken on your device or uploaded from a camera. While most of these photos aren’t full resolution, they tend to take a lot of space that you can use for other functions.
To free up some space you should delete the photo stream feature by going to settings and then go to photos and camera. To turn off the photo stream you should deselect the feature.
You should note that you can always turn on the feature after you have resolved the storage issue.
These are some of the ways of freeing up some space on your phone. While most of the ways will require you to manually remove the apps that you don’t need, there is a new technology where you use software to handle all the work that you would have done manually.
The software analyses the areas or apps you don’t use and turn them off or delete them automatically thus giving you more space
