How to survive with 16 GB for iPhone in our time

For owners the most affordable 16-Gigabyte iPhone free memory on the device is a real headache. Once downloaded to a smartphone all the usual applications, photos and videos, from memory, almost nothing remains. And how to use the device after that – not very clear. And even pleasure from the money saved will not help in a situation when you need to make the best shot in life, and the gadget treacherously writes: “almost no Space”.

But do not be upset, because there are a few ways to save iPhone memory. In this article, we reviewed some useful tips, following which you will save a lot of space on your device with 16 GB. At least, the evil sign of the lack of free space will appear much less frequently.

Upload all photos and videos to the cloud

The most active eaters free space on an iPhone are pictures and videos. But don’t hurry to take pictures in lower resolution, disable Live Photos or even to do less photos. Just empty space, regularly by off-loading media files to the cloud.

Thanks to such services as Google Photos and Flickr, it is not difficult. Both have applications that support the startup of all photos and videos in the background, as well as unlimited free storage. The only important point is the bound network connection to view the uploaded to the cloud pictures, but it’s not a big problem in our days.

Do not store music on the gadget, use streaming services

Listening to music can also be organized without storing the songs on the device. Apple allows you to broadcast downloaded from the iTunes music via iCloud – download it and store on the device is not necessary. Delete unwanted tracks from your iPhone and listen to them online.

To save the memory space of the gadget can also use streaming services, like Apple Music, Yandex.Music, Google Music or Zvooq.

Leave only those games that do play

The desire to keep games on device – detrimental to the available space. New titles come out faster than we have time to pass. Add to this free distribution, which we downloaded just because they are free. Now even the most simple arcade game rarely takes less than 100 MB. And about the premium games in General are not talking, after all, they can easily take more than a GB, and then several.

Delete the downloaded the game immediately after its passage. Also watch out for the mounted device names. It is unlikely that you will be going through 10-15 games at the same time. Moreover, if necessary, purchased apps at any time again download from the App Store.

Competently use a browser

In our days, each service or social network offers mobile clients, and almost every one of us would gladly install them on their devices. Of course, this greatly simplifies the use, but completely inefficient in terms of saving memory.

Not necessary to install it from the App Store dictionary to see a translation of any unfamiliar words. Also, be sure not to install the application “Wikipedia” to read another article. Enough to use Safari, which allows you to add shortcuts to websites on your home screen iOS device and immediately open the page as an application. Thus, if you refuse the five applications of approximately 100 MB, it will save half a Gigabyte.

Do not overdo the reading list

Read books and articles useful. But think about whether you need to device a library? Books are not songs, they can not be read dozens of times over. Literature is not so much space as the games, but still is.

Many users Pocket collect mountains of articles and materials that are rarely ever read. The service is supported almost everywhere, and we often abuse this convenience. Look in settings and see how many places are occupied by cached files (can easily be 500 MB and more). Visit the application settings will encourage you to cleaning is accumulated in the memory of the iPhone literature “to read later”.

Clean the phone memory

Over time, swells from iPhone of installed applications, and the number of home screens increased so much that finding the right program becomes a real meal. Needless to say that from time to time should be an audit and remove old and unused applications?

You also need to monitor the files that are created by individual applications and stored locally on the iPhone and iPad. Similar content generate different streaming services, so that a user can listen to music or view video in the absence of a network connection. The same active sending photos and videos via iMessage quickly reduces the available space. The content can hold gigabytes of memory. Fortunately, these files also can remove by going to the related items in the settings of the gadget.

If the above recommendations you will not be enough, you can go to more drastic measures and see what content takes up the most space, and then ruthlessly delete it. Fortunately in iOS to do this quite easy: you need to go to the Main tab –> Storage and iCloud, having illustrative statistics occupied space.
