When people complain about their mobile phones, it is often because of a lack of storage space. In the past, your phone simply had contacts and a few low-quality pictures stored on it. The smartphone trend changed the game and now phones need plenty of storage to hold everything from applications to pictures. Music, movies, pictures, and applications are all competing for storage space on your smartphone. If you are dealing with a lack of space, there is hope. Here are four ways to free up some valuable storage on your phone.
Expand your memory
Many people can add extra storage space in the form of a memory card. Android devices typically come with a memory card slot, which allows you to expand your phone’s storage through a MicroSD card. Windows devices often contain memory slots as well. If you are an iPhone user, this does not apply to you. iPhone users are unfortunately limited to the storage their particular model of phone originally has.
Delete unused applications
With hundreds of apps available on just about every variety of smartphone, it is easy to quickly fill your phone with a whopping collection. You likely have a few apps you never use, so go through them and delete any that are no longer needed. This will free up a significant amount of space for other things like music or pictures.
Backup your pictures
If you take a lot of pictures on your smartphone, you may want to back them up to your computer every once in awhile. This will prevent you from losing your pictures if anything goes wrong with your phone and it will free up more storage space. If you have a cloud service, such as iCloud, you can backup your pictures to online storage rather easily.
Delete old texts
Did you know that old text messages can actually take up quite a bit of space? If you have hundreds of old messages you will likely never read again, go ahead and delete them. Make sure any pictures within the messages are saved somewhere if they are important to you. Also consider weeding out old messages from messaging apps like WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger.
