2Don't Double Save Photos

If you use the HDR mode to take photographs, you should be aware of the fact that the iPod Touch also stores a normal version of the photograph. Go to the settings of your photos and camera and turn off the “keep normal photo” feature. This will save you a lot of space as now you will store only one copy of the photo on your device if your iPod is not having enough space.

5Delete All Music

Keeping all Music on the iPod Touch in particular is unnecessary, so when the storage is almost full, you can remove all the music. Don’t want to delete them all? Don’t worry, take some time to set up and use iTunes Home Sharing to play music from a computer while at home or the office.
