Imagine this – you’re taking pictures of a family event using your iPhone, and they’re quite a lot of images at that. You might even add a video or two for those wacky times that happened in the event. And then, it happened; there is that dreadful message that pops up on your Apple smartphone that says “Storage Almost Full.” This means that you won’t be able to take any more pictures unless you resolve this problem. It’s not just that, you won’t also be able to receive emails as the Mail app will stop working, and not to mention the overall performance on the handset will slow down dramatically. It is a dreadful situation, but not one that can be prevented. So read on to know how you can prevent this message from popping up on your Apple device.
Prevent the “Storage Almost Full” Message From Popping up on Your iPhone
Step 1 – First of all, it is important to check the storage of your iPhone regularly. Since Apple doesn’t like to put microSD card slots on their phones, you’re stuck with whatever internal storage capacity your handset has. To check the available storage on your device, head to Settings; after that, go to General, before heading towards Storage & iCloud Usage. In here, you will be able to see how much space you are currently using on your device.
Step 2 – Once you already know how much space is left on your Apple smartphone, you can then proceed to free up space by deleting what you don’t need. To start, uninstall the apps that you no longer use. In order to do that, do a long-press on the icon that you want to be deleted and everything will start to wobble around. But aside from the icons jiggling about, you will also get an “X” mark that will sit right atop the icon. Tapping on the “X” mark will uninstall the app from your Apple iPhone.
Step 3 – Delete the videos and photos that you no longer want to see in your device. Do you still have those moments with your ex-partner found in the deepest depths of your smartphone? Then why not just move on and delete all of them instead. You’ll be glad you did, and you can even add more space to your device while you’re at it.
Step 4 – Don’t want to delete photos and videos in your iPhone? Then back them up into your personal cloud storage instead. You can use the company’s proprietary iCloud service, or you can use other popular variants such as Dropbox and Google Drive.
