6 Tips to Free Up Tons of Storage Space on iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch
Are you feeling the pinch of the limited storage capacity on an iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch? If you are running low on space, check out these tricks to greatly ease any potential storage squeeze you may be experiencing with your iOS gear. 1: Regularly Remove Photos & Video If you use iCloud and have Photo Stream enabled, every picture and video taken on an iPhone is going to sync to the iPad automatically, and vice versa.

The best thing to do is to regularly transfer photos from the iOS device to a computer and use the computer as a primary backup, and then delete the pictures from the iPad. 2: Delete All Music 3: Find Where Storage is Being Used and Clean Up It’s easy to check how much storage is available in iOS, and the same screen tells you which apps are taking up the most space. 5: Remove Watched Videos All done?
