Use the Cloud as Much as You Can
One reason that phones struggle as they get older – and why people often end up wanting to upgrade – is lack of space. Fortunately, space is easy to clear on your iPhone as long as you make a few changes.
One of the most effective changes is clearing up space by “removing” your photos and videos. Don’t worry, you don’t have to get rid of them entirely, but you should try moving them to the cloud.
Apple’s Photos app can easily back up your photos to iCloud, where they will always be easy to access but won’t take up any room on your phone.
- Remember, you have 5GB of free space on iCloud to use for photos and videos, so take advantage of that.
- Delete old videos or pictures that you don’t want anymore.
- If you take lots of photos, try practicing the habit of deleting or moving them to the cloud after you’ve posted on social media, etc.
