Apple released its latest smartphone, the iPhone SE, in March, months after releasing the iPhone 6S. The 6S marked the debut of some new features, such as 3D Touch and “live photos.” While iPhone SE is also equipped all the features which iPhone 6s has. To many people’s disappointment, iPhone SE doesn’t supply the 32 GB option like iPhone 5s, it still starts with 16 GB capacity. Many people complain that their iPhone SE memory is not enough to use, so they cannot experience all features of this little stuff with ease.
It's a bit of a hassle, when you get a new phone with 16 GB. Here are four key things to do to keep your storage down and clean out your iPhone SE memory.
Tip 1: Only Keep Your Most Replayable Games
Many people like me is a strict fan of electronic games. We like installing and experiencing many kinds of mobile games. So my iPhone SE gets full easily. However, I’m trying to remove some apps these days. Why? You'll want to have lots of games on your phone for those times you're stuck somewhere with nothing to do and, quite possibly, with no internet connection. So make sure you pick games that you'll want to play. I love Sky Gamblers, but now that I've deleted it, it's of no use to me. Even I can play over and over to try for a better score, but I have to clean out memory for my iPhone SE.
Tip 2: Get Photos off Your iPhone SE
Since iPhone SE is equipped with an impressive camera, a lot of users like taking photos with it, and the storage and memory gets less and less. To economize your memory space, you can delete photos especially live photos that take up over 8 GB on your device. If you really want to save this photos, you can back up them ahead of time so that you can easily download these photos again anytime you want from iCloud or iTunes. It is very convenient.
Tip 3: Get Rid of Extra Files
It's obvious enough that you should delete old apps you aren't using. Because some of them take up a lot of space. The less obvious thing to consider is that a lot of apps will store files offline without telling you. They include Safari caches and history, app caches and cookies, documents and data, temporary files, reading list and etc.. For example, music apps, which will temporarily download songs to give you a better experience. On occasion, those files don't get deleted for one reason or another, so you should check to make sure that isn't happening.
