Find out what is using up your storage on your iOS device (Tech tip 1 of 31)

iOS devices with smaller storage capacities can quickly fill up with a variety of recordings, projects and media. The installation of some applications may also use up large amounts of storage space as well. Inevitably, there will come a point where the storage capacity of the device will fill up and decisions will need to be made on applications and media that may need to be deleted, backed-up or uninstalled in order to free up more space.

Go to your storage management settings in order to quickly determine the applications that are currently using up the most amount of storage on your iOS device.

  1. Go to SETTINGS
  2. Select the GENERAL menu item
  3. Find and select the USAGE menu
  4. Then go to MANAGE STORAGE

In the MANAGE STORAGE section, you will be able to see the amount of storage still available on your device as well as a list of all your apps and the amount of available storage capacity. You may be surprised to discover the amount of storage that certain apps use up. With that said, this information can help you determine which applications to attend to (ex. delete or back up) in order to recover the maximum amount of storage space on your iPad, iPod or iPhone.
