How to Free Up Space on Your iPhone (& Never Worry About It Again) (Video)

Since most iPhone users don’t stray from iOS they usually upgrade from an iPhone to a newer iPhone. When they do this, things like photos, app data, and a tons of other things are synced and then transferred directly to the new phone. Combine this with the fact that most users don’t upgrade their storage when buying their next iPhone and you can see how we have a pretty easy recipe for running out of space pretty quickly.

Luckily you can free up space on your iPhone with a few simple steps. Things like making sure you aren’t saving duplicate photos (Instagram is notorious for this), saving photos to the cloud automatically so you can delete old ones from the phone without fear of losing them forever, as well as cleaning up some app data and caches that are just taking up space for no good reason.

So let’s see how we can free up storage space on your iPhone and how we can put things in place to make it far less often you’ll need to do this purging.

How to Free Up Space on the iPhone

Check Storage and Find the Largest Cuplrits

First off, we shouldn’t go into this blindly, right? Let’s see what the biggest storage hogs are, then we can tackle this starting with the biggest culprits and move on.

Thankfully, iOS has a way to check this built it. Head to Settings > General > Storage & iCloud Usage > Manage Storage under Storage. From here you’ll see list sorted by the items with the largest size on top.

Now that we can see the biggest culprits eating away at our storage, let’s go through how we can free up the storage they are hogging and also see if we can stop them from taking up so much in the future.

iPhone Storage

Photos

After doing the check on the storage, chances are, you’ll most likely see Photos pretty close to the top. Since it is probably the biggest complaint I usually hear about and the one that usually takes up the most data by far, let’s tackle that one first.

Use Google Photos to Automatically Backup All Photos & Videos then Delete Old Ones

Now that we’ve cut down on the duplicates, let’s take care of the big one –your camera roll.

I did an article on this a while ago and named a bunch of ways to backup your photos and you can check that out, but my favorite way is using Google Photos. Essentially, we’re going to use Google Photos, with its free unlimited storage and auto-backup features, to backup all of the photos we have on the phone then delete the ones on the phone since Google Photos allows us to see all of our photos in the Google Photos app without them taking up space on the phone.

Don’t worry, it doesn’t show them to anyone or post them on Google Plus or anything weird like that, and as a bonus, it actually has some cool (slightly freaky?) search features you can then use to find photos once they’re in the app.

Here’s how to use it.

Backup your Photos

Google Photos Backup

  1. Head to the App Store, search for and install Google Photos.
  2. Open it once installed and login/signup (it’s free).
  3. Then click the Settings icon and select to Automatically Backup photos (or select it when prompted during the setup process).
  4. Connect to a Wifi network at this point to speed up the process (and make sure it uploads your videos as well).
  5. Tap the menu icon at the top left and then tap on Assistant and make sure you see it backing up.
  6. Wait. A long time.
  7. Once it says it is done, head to photos.google.com and login with the same credentials you used for the app. Once you do, do a quick scroll through the photos to confirm they all seem to be there (maybe also do some other backup methods just in case as well).

Erase the Camera Roll Photos

Delete Camera Roll

Unfortunately, iOS doesn’t have a way of deleting apps in bulk very easily and would require you to delete them one by one, but thankfully, Google Photos just added the ability to delete them all from inside the app. Here’s how.

  1. Open Google Photos.
  2. Tap the menu icon at the top left then tap Settings.
  3. Under Free up device storage, tap Free Up Space and follow the prompts to finish the job.

From then on, you’ll have reclaimed a ton of storage and still have access to any photo you need from the past by going to the Google Photos app and finding it from there.

Also, from now on, the Google Photos app will always backup your photos and videos if you open the app once in a while while connected to Wifi (it is supposed to do it automatically without having to do that, but I find it doesn’t always so I open it once in a while and let it backup, just to be safe).

Messages

Messages on Mac

An app that you wouldn’t really think of hogging a lot of data, but is usually one I see on people’s phones at the top of the storage usage list, is your messages app.

Reason being is that iOS automatically saves all of the photos from your conversations as well as the conversations themselves indefinitely (by default, at least). And since you probably don’t need all of that, let’s change it from Forever to 30 days (the shortest amount it has).

  1. Head to Settings > Messages.
  2. Under Message History, tap Keep Messages and change it from Forever to 30 days

Music

The next biggie for most people is their Music. This usually happens when you have your music actually saved on your phone, say through iTunes, but there’s a better way –streaming.

Use a Streaming Music Service

Spotify Streaming Music

I swap phones so often that I can’t be bothered with putting my music on each one every time so I opted for a streaming service like Spotify instead. You don’t need your entire library on your phone at one time, so instead I save the songs offline from Spotify that I listen to the most often (or know I’m going to want to listen to this week) and then the rest I stream when I feel like I need to hear a specific song. You can download Spotify and pay for the Premium service to be able to do this yourself, or, if you’re engrained in iTunes, you can add iTunes Match to your iTunes to achieve something similar.

Using iTunes Match instead of regular iTunes allows you to keep all your music on your computer, or in the iTunes cloud, and then just download to the phone ones you want to have offline and stream the others like with Spotify. The benefit of this over Spotify is really for those that have their own downloaded music library and want to be able to access it instead of relying on Spotify’s audio library.

To Setup iTunes Match

Sign Up for iTunes Match

  1. On the phone, head to Settings > Music > Subscribe to iTunes Match.
  2. Download and open iTunes on your computer and add your music to it so it can upload it to iCloud.
  3. Once done, head back to the phone and go to Settings > Music > Turn On iTunes Match

Extra Ways to Free Up Space

That probably covers the biggest ones, but there are a few other things to try and reclaim some more storage if you want.

Stop Saving Duplicate Photos

You might not know this, but your phone is saving duplicate photos.

The biggest offenders of this are your normal camera app and Instagram. Your regular camera app does this whenever you take a photo using HDR (which is a software for helping take low-light photos) and Instagram just infamously saves any photo you upload to Instagram as a photo in your camera roll for no reason.

Since neither of these is really very useful in my opinion – use your own judgement though, of course – let’s turn them both off.

Photos

Turn Off Keep Normal Photo

  1. Head to Settings > Photos & Camera
  2. Scroll down and turn off Keep Normal Photo under HDR.

Instagram

Turn Off Instagram Photo Saving

  1. Open the Instagram app.
  2. Tap on your profile then tap the Settings (gear) icon.
  3. Turn off Save Original Photos.

Delete Voicemail Messages

Deleted Voicemails

  1. Head to Phone > Voicemail.
  2. Swipe on each voicemail and tap delete until you delete them all.

Delete Old Podcasts

Podcasts App

  1. Open the Podcast app.
  2. Swipe on each one and tap delete until you delete them all.

Delete Unused Apps

Removing Apps

We all hate to see apps go, but as a last resort, it might be a good idea to check that manage storage list and see which apps use a lot of data that you simply don’t use that often (think video games, apps that do a particular thing you could just as easily do in the browser, or ones you just haven’t touched in forever).

There you go.

How to Change the Keyboard on an Android Device

So it has occurred to me that a lot of people don’t realize the extent of which you can customize an Android device. From the home screen launcher, to the theme, to the phone dialer/messaging/email app, the list is endless. It’s one of the beauties of Android –total freedom to replace what you don’t like with some developer’s better attempt.

It’s the sheer number of people I’ve met that are still using TouchWiz and cursing at it that has brought me to think that it warrants a small series of videos here on the site (if not a PSA blasted across the country) on how to get the most out of the customization options of Android. So here goes.

To start this off, let’s begin with one of the first things I do when getting a new Android device –the keyboard. It’s the fastest way for me to get a sense of familiarity and it is the first thing that annoys me about a lot of manufacturer’s custom interfaces (just like how you’ve come to learn the layout of the keyboard for most computers, I’ve come to get used to a specific way I want my Android keyboard. Thanks, conditioning!).

If you type “keyboard” into the Play Store, you’ll be presented with a lot of interesting options for replacements. There’s ones that allow you to swipe the keys to form words, ones with unconventional keys with multiple letters per key that guess the letter you actually want, ones in crazy colors and styles, and most have a lot more customization options than the one your manufacturer thought you’d like.

Swapping out the keyboard is a lot like downloading any other app; find the keyboard you want from the Play Store and install it. The difference is that you need to set it up after downloading it. And although some will walk you through this process when you install the keyboard, not all do so it’s probably best to know how to do it manually regardless. Here’s how:

I. Download the New Keyboard

1. Open the Play Store.

2. Search for “keyboard”.

3. Choose a keyboard you want to try and install it.

II. Setup the New Keyboard

1. Go to Settings > Language and Input (this might be called something else depending on your device, but look for something that might contain keyboard settings).

2. Check the box next to the new keyboard name to enable it.

3. Tap on Default and then choose the new keyboard to set it as the default keyboard.

4. Open any app that has typing in it, and tap in the text field. The new keyboard should pop up.

How to Get the Amazon Appstore on Your Android Device

How to Install the Amazon Appstore

So because the Play Store doesn’t allow other app stores, you have to go about getting the Amazon Appstore a little differently.

  1. First up, we need to allow apps from outside the Play Store to be installed on the phone. Head to Settings > Security > and then tap Allow Unknown Sources on.
    Unknown Sources
  2. Now, we need to get the app store file onto the phone so to do that, head to the link below from your Android phone:
    Amazon Appstore Download
  3. Once there, you can tap Download and it’ll save it to your phone.
  4. After it downloads, tap the download notification in the notification shade and it’ll install.
  5. Once installed, you can click Open to get to the app store and you’ll be able to get to it in the future from your regular app drawer like any other app.
  6. Once you open it, you’ll need to sign in with your Amazon account in order to use it, so do that.

Amazon Appstore Home Page

Now, that that’s installed and ready to go, let’s discuss some of its advantages.

Amazon Coins

First up, Amazon offers Amazon coins, a type of virtual currency that you can purchase from Amazon to then spend on apps, games, and in-app purchases in the Amazon App Store. Essentially these coins help save you money. Every 100 coins is worth $1, so a $0.99 app would cost 99 coins. The difference is, the more coins you buy the more of a discount you get. Sometimes they even run specials that increase these discounts, too. At the moment, you can see that you can get 500 coins for $4.50, 1000 for $8.80 and so on even getting 50,000 for just $375. If you’re a big gamer and spend a lot of money in-app, this can be a great way save a bit without having to do much.

Amazon Coins

In addition to that, Amazon regularly gives coin-back bonuses for specific in-app purchases. So if there’s a 20% Amazon Coins back offer on an in-app purchase of $19.99, you’d get back $3.99 in coins to use on future purchases.

Amazon Underground

Besides coins, Amazon has a unique section of their site that’s devoted to apps and games that are free called Amazon Underground. A lot of these are games and apps from the Play Store that actually cost money there, but in the Amazon Underground section they’re free.

Actually Free Banner

Not only are they free to download but a lot of them have free in-app purchases compared to their Play Store counterparts. You can see the apps that have these special free in-app purchases by a small badge that says Actually Free on the app icon in store.
