Toronto: Apple launched iOS 8 lately- the newest version of its mobile operating system that gives a cluster of new features – but the firm has come across complaints that the 1.1GB download requires almost 6GB of free space to set up.
Not only we can solve what is eating up your storage space, we can also give some ideas on how to fix it so you can get back to installing iOS 8, absolutely error free!
Here are some strategies to make space for iOS 8 and so some housecleaning if you are often bumping into your iPhone’s storage limit.
Spot the space hogs
What’s taking up all your storage? Find out by tapping Settings > General > Usage. It may consume a minute or two for iOS 7 to produce the list of apps, but once it does, you will have an obvious picture of what’s consuming your gigabytes.
Usually the Music and Photos & Camera apps were certainly the worst offenders, occupying more than 11 GB between them. If you are a gamer, don’t be amazed to see titles such as Infinity Blade, Horn and Modern Combat 5 close to the top of that list too.
Pointless to state, this is your clearest route to storage retrieval. If you discover a handful of big apps you can live without, even just for the time being, move ahead and delete them. After you have set up iOS 8, you must find adequate space to reinstall most if not all.
Remove music, photos, and videos
If app exclusion is not making an impression, it’s time to observe the other space hogs: photos, videos and music – particularly iTunes videos, the matter you have rented or procured and downloaded for offline viewing. Go to the videos app and remove anything that is stored locally. Don’t get tensed as you can always download it once again whenever you need it. Conversely, think about keeping that space free and streaming iTunes videos from your PC.
The personal videos which are shot with your iPhone, consider offloading them to your PC. For this, you just need to connect your phone to a USB port -> open an Explorer window -> direct to the iPhone’s DCIM folder.
You might need to do some searching and sorting to get all the videos. From there, simply drag and drop them to a folder on your hard drive. Keep in mind, however, that this just copies them from your iPhone. Why not employ Move instead? In my knowledge, this does not work well. Thus copy the videos over, then select and delete them from the Photos app manually.
The similar alternative works for photos, although you might want to deem a cloud strategy instead – like, say, employing Dropbox, which gives automated photo backup from within its iOS app.
Lastly, if you are still stocking up a huge collection of music on your phone, reflect on removing it in favor of streaming. You could, for instance, sync your songs and playlists with Google Music, then employ the Google Music app to play the whole lot on demand – no local storage required. Or perhaps even indulge for a Spotify subscription and keep away from the whole music storage thing on the whole.
One or more these choices must be sufficient in giving iOS 8 a home. And keep in mind that once set up, you must get most of those gigabytes freed up again.
With the above quick and easy ways you can free up space on your iPhone.
