How to make more space on iPhone? Running out of space on your iPhone can be really annoying. In addition to receiving the famous “iPhone storage is almost full” every day, you can’t even install a new app or take photos or videos on Snapchat. What is eating up your iPhone storage? Read on to get the answers and then start to free up your iPhone storage with ease.

Part 1: Three Methods to Make More Space on iPhone

Unlike Android phones, Apple doesn’t allow users to add extra storage by using micro SD. So, when your iPhone only has few spaces, you have to focus back on clearing up old data and making more room for new data. Following part will tell you the basic methods to make more space on iPhone.

Method 1: Check the Status of Usage

Firstly, check out what is eating up the most storage on your iPhone. To do this, open Settings app, tap General, and then select "iPhone Storage". You can see a list of recommendations for optimizing your iPhone’s storage, followed by a list of installed apps and the space each takes up. Here you can uninstall and install the apps that have eaten up most of your storage. In this way, you can fully clean the apps cache and free up more memory on iPhone.


Method 2: Set Message Expiration to 30 Days

Many iPhone users don't know that Message App keeps all messages on iPhone permanently. If you usually send and receive plenty of messages with your friends, I strongly advise you change the message expiration from Forever to 30 Days.

Go to Settings > Messages > Keep Messages > 30 Days. After the change, it will remind you that the older messages will be permanently deleted. Tap “Delete” so that you can free up space on iPhone.


Method 3: Clear Safari Cache

Safari is another storage eater on iPhone. It automatically stores unneeded history data, cookies and crash logs when you are using it. To clear Safari cache, tap Settings > Clear History and Website Data.   


Apart from Safari cache, media caches and crash logs also take up much space on iPhone. Next, I’m going to introduce how to free up iPhone storage on iPhone by one-click clearing up junk files with an iPhone cleaner. You can also bulk-delete photos, videos to make more room on your iPhone.
