Apple’s worldwide marketing senior vice president, Philip Schiller, said that the app spending by them has topped $20 billion in the year 2015. The sources reveal that the reason behind the increase in sales of apps via the App store is that developers have started improving their apps versions in the previous years.

How to free up storage on your Apple iPhone or iPad Devices

Are you running out of space on your iPhone or iPad device? Then, here are the tricks how can you delete the unnecessary junk from your phone and create some extra space for your applications and media in just a few steps.

Delete the apps not used by you any longer:

This is a simple to do thing but is really effective for increasing the storage on your iPhone. Browse through your iPhone or iPad device and find the applications that are no longer of any use to you. Now, tap and hold your finger on them. Tap the mini “X” that pops up in the top left corner of your iPhone to delete them.

If you are not sure that it’s worth deleting an app or not then just head to the settings on your iPhone and then click on General then Storage and iCloud usage then finally on the Manage Storage. Here, you can directly find out how much space is being taken up by it. The Games are likely to use most of the space, with the latest action titles taking up most storage.

Organize your Images:

Google Photos app allows you to store your pictures and videos on cloud for free. To start using this application, just head to the App store and start downloading it. However, you will need a Google account to start using these pictures, so sign up for one if you don’t have it.

Once you are done with it, just make a tap on the menu icon located at the top left of the Google Photos app and choose “Settings”. Then, tap the “Backup and Synchronization” and just turn it on. Now, all the photos snapped by you will be automatically saved to the Google’s cloud, so you can delete them safely from your iPhone or iPad device.

However, it is always recommended to first check your Google Photos account by logging in from some other device to ensure that are safely backed up there because you will never prefer to lose any of your photos in any condition.

You should also enter the settings in your iPhone and head to the Photos & Camera to check out that “My Photo Stream” is deactivated. Otherwise, your iPhone or iPad device will get cluttered with the photos taken using other iOS devices available with you. Another option is to turn off the “Keep Normal Photo”, to make sure that you don’t store two copies of every HDR photo you click with your device.

Just Stream and don’t download:

In UK, it is quite affordable to grab an “AYCE” data contract which enables you to download and browse the internet at no extra cost. Thus, you can also choose to delete the music and video files from your phone and iPad and stream these. There are service providers such as Netflix or Spotify that offer a huge catalogue with the online content that you can enjoy as much as you can. All you will need is an internet connection but beware as you can be hit by the terrific roaming charges if you use it abroad as well.

Change the messaging settings:

If you don’t read the old messages from your iPhone them head to the Settings then Messages and change the Keep Messages value to 30 days. This will automatically delete the messages from your device after one month to free up the space. Also, if you are using any of the third-party apps on your device then these could be eating up your valuable storage. So, you can opt for uninstalling these applications id not required.

Update to iOS 9:

Now, if you have freed up enough space on your phone or iPad just download the iOS 9, which takes less space than the iOS 8 thus providing you with more GB’s to play with.
