The One App You Should Delete ASAP If Your iPhone Storage Is Full

The dreaded full storage warning. In terms of first world problems, it’s one of the worst (with the red battery light being a close second). If you get a “storage full” warning daily, free yourself of the burden and follow these extremely simply steps towards freeing up some space. You’ll thank us!

It sounds so simple, but you'd be surprised how many people don't take 2 minutes out of their day to make this change in their Settings that can make a huge difference in their ongoing storage battle. 


All you have to do is open Settings > General > iPhone Storage.


There, you'll see how much storage space you're currently using, how much space you have left, and a list of the apps and programs that are using the most storage capacity, in descending order.

Each person's list will be different--for me, of preinstalled apps, the TV app was using the most storage with 19.32 GB. Of the apps I downloaded, Spotify was using the most, with 1.66 GB. 

So--let us know in the comments below. Will you be changing your app usage to save storage?
