Most of the time, this problem is encountered by users whose internal memory does not exceed 64GB. The interesting thing is that in most cases, the iPhone will tell you that a mysterious “Other” is using most of the memory. What’s the Other? 

The developers say that the “Other” includes:

  • various system settings, 
  • caches, 
  • audio books, 
  • ringtones, 
  • movies and TV series, 
  • books.

In general, this section stores all the files that you download to your iPhone. But, how can you clear your phone’s memory without affecting your content? 

Here are some recommendations to help you free up space.

  1. Unload unused applications. This is an interesting feature that allows you to remove apps from your system. But they are removed only formally. So, you’ll essentially free up space by uninstalling the app, but you won’t lose any of your data. You can click on the application icon and the system will automatically restore it with your data.
  2. Deleting music. Apps that provide streaming audio files as well as downloading music for offline listening also lead to system clogging. Deleting these files will free up space, too.
  3. Cleaning the cache. Temporary files are the main base of every application without exception. They may occupy a lot of memory and, despite the name, remain on your system forever. Cleaning the cache will remove these files. The largest distributors of temporary files are services that require an internet connection and perform synchronization. These may include YouTube, Google Maps, cloud storage, and many others.
  4. Old chats. The “Other” category also includes photos and videos that you receive and send in messages. If you have any unnecessary chats then feel free to delete them and free up some extra megabytes, or maybe even gigabytes.
  5. Safari. Apple’s built-in browser brings a number of useful and convenient features to surfing. But like any other browser, Safari stores a lot of different information. There’s history, cookies, and other data. Hardly much, but clearing Safari’s cache will get you some space. You can do this by opening the settings. Remember that if you do this you’ll lose your bookmarks and history.
  6. Photos. This is by far one of the system’s largest storage areas. To free it up you will need to remove a lot of photos and videos. Your best bet is to check for duplicate or similar photos and delete them. 
  7. If you don’t want to consider this option then cloud storage is a better option. Simply drop all content to iCloud, for example, and then clear your device’s memory.
  8. Full device reset. If you want a radical solution to the problem, then why not? The surest way would be to reset your iPhone to factory settings. This will definitely free up your entire system. But in doing so, you’ll lose absolutely all the data, and the gadget will have to be reconfigured. If you’re ready for that, then go for it.
