Rumor has it that the newest update gives you longer storage instead of taking it away. Hooray!

If you are somebody who updated their apparatus and is nevertheless running out of space, there is hope for you — do not worry.
Running out of storage on your iPhone appears to be the standard (particularly if you still have a 16 GB cell) but folks are finally starting to find out how to create more space without even paying for a new phone.
Shockingly, the space-saving hacks are more evident than you’d think.
1- Delete your damn Tinder messages.
We are all millennials, and chances are you and all of your friends have a Tinder account with 100-plus matches and conversations. Don’t lie — I know they are there.
If they didn’t work out, then delete them.

2 – Get rid of older iBooks or Podcasts that you’re done with.

The same holds for podcasts. It has been reported the recorded conversations will take up distance on your phone.

4- Pick and choose which songs you transfer from iTunes.
Downloading your entire iTunes library on your own iPhone probably is not too wise.
Songs take up a great deal of storage, and MacWorld came up with a genius suggestion to people who have a broad taste in music.
Download the iTunes Match program. It’ll let you download music right from the iCloud without having to download all the songs in your library.
5- Check which programs are using the most storage space on your phone.
Whether you know it or not, there are probably programs on your phone which are sucking up more space than you realize.
To figure our which apps are using the most storage, follow these steps:
Settings > General > Storage & iCloud Usage > Manage Storage
After a few moments, a list of apps will appear and those toward the top are taking the most space.
(If you are not using them, delete those bad boys)
6- Delete the apps you are not using.

To delete the apps, hold an app icon and await the programs to start shaking. Once they’re jiggling about the screen, press the”X” in the left corner and then say goodbye.
7- Delete your old text messages.
If you’re anything like me, you most likely have text messages in the depths of your telephone back to the year 2015 (do not be ashamed).
Unless you are keeping sacred conversations and holding on a text strand for any specific reason, delete these messages.
In order to accomplish this, go to Settings > Messages > Message History > Keep Messages
This will give you the chance to delete messages in a particular time frame, which will open more distance on your phone.

You likely are not even aware that you have had your”Photo Stream” turned on this entire time.
Your Photo Stream allows you see the pictures you’ve uploaded into your Mac from your iPhone or iPad, and even though they are not full resolution, they’re taking up a lot of room.
To delete the Photo Stream in the iPhone, go to Settings > Photos & Camera, then deselect”My Photo Stream.”
9. …and stop taking bursts.
Are you aware that annoying feeling when you hold down your camera button for one film and end up with ten fuzzy shots of the same subject?
That’s known as a”burst,” and as you’re taking many images at once, it’s taking up more room on your phone and it’s more difficult to delete.
Regrettably, you can not turn”burst mode” off (because that is not a thing). However, MacWorld suggests you just use the volume button to take pictures instead to avoid the opportunity of”bursting”
10- Publish your old, useless notes.
No matter who you are or what you do, you probably have at least 20 notes on your own Notes program at this time.
Though they may’ve been useful when you wrote them, it is likely that you do not need’em anymore.
By deleting some notes, you won’t be creating too much of a storage gap — but it’s something.
There you have it, everybody.
