How to Free Up Storage Space on iPhone

Managing storage on your iPhone, whether it’s a regular or Pro model, can be a significant task with the accumulation of photos, files, and apps.

If you’ve encountered a “There is not enough available storage” pop-up message, here are some tips to free up space on your iPhone:

  1. Delete or Offload Unused App

In your device storage, you can find a complete list of all installed apps on your iPhone. While you use many apps regularly, there might be some that you haven’t used in a while. You can either delete those apps entirely or offload them.

Deleting removes the app and its settings, while offloading only removes the app, keeping its settings.

Offloading is useful when you need space for an iOS update, and the offloaded apps remain on your home screen, ready to be re-downloaded when needed.

  1. Upload Photos and Videos to a Cloud Storage

Nowadays, iPhones are often used to capture memorable photos and videos. This leads to the Photos app taking up a significant portion of the iPhone’s storage.

Deleting large photos and videos is an ideal solution to free up space, but before doing so, it’s crucial to upload them to cloud storage to ensure you don’t lose access to those precious moments.

  1. Delete Unnecessary Photos and Large Video Files

After uploading your important photos and videos to cloud storage, you can safely delete them from your iPhone to reclaim storage space.

  1. Clear Browser’s Cache

Regularly clearing your iPhone’s browser cache is essential to get rid of temporary internet files that accumulate and take up storage.

  1. Delete Unwanted Message Conversations

Honestly, we tend to forget about unnecessary texts and promotional messages in the Messages app, letting them pile up and use valuable storage space on our iPhones.

If you’re not holding onto old conversations for sentimental or legal reasons, consider getting rid of those messages to free up a significant amount of space on your iPhone.


In all, freeing up space on your iPhone boils down to what you are willing to let go and what you want to keep. And this decision can be tough, depending on the contents you have on your iPhone.
