Tip 1 Get rid of those unwanted apps from your iPhone
There are many Apps that we maybe used them only once or twice. The problem is that they take a lot of your phone’s memory space, restricting you from taking more photos, downloading more data and etc.
To get rid of this problem, simply delete the apps you don’t use often. You can simply tap and hold the app icon, it’ll start to wiggle, tap the “x” on top of the icon, tap on the delete button and that is it.
Tip 2 Remove pictures and other junk data
If you’re one of those who love taking a lot pictures, selfies, making videos and what not, and have thousands of photos in your phone… well, removing those pictures from your iPhone can save you A LOT of space. You can have a backup of all those pictures on your PC using iTunes very easily.
