the app clutter

I get rid of think we can all relate to the downloading of an app or game, just to check it out, and then open it again. You have to go through the apps on your phone and remove all that you no longer use. Each app is only the consumption of storage space and cluttering your home screens.

To delete apps on your iPhone, long press on an app icon to wiggle until you start. Tap the small “X” that shows up in the top left corner of the app icon to delete the app. As the managing Director of my own apps, I wish Apple never removed the ability to use iTunes to manage them would. Oh, you have it exclusively on your phone.

save your photo library

photos and videos are some of the most precious things on your iPhone, so make sure they are secured. The best way is to use a photo backup service like Apple’s iCloud photo library or the Google-app “photos”.

” iCloud is the easiest, and is in the iOS, but depending on how big your library is, you might have to in a larger iCloud storage amount, which can cost anywhere from $0.99 to $9.99 per month. Turn off iCloud photo backup through the opening of the settings app on your iPhone and go to photos and continue to press the switch to iCloud photos On position. 

the Google photos offers free unlimited storage for “high-quality” photos and videos, which means that Google is the compression of photos larger than 16 megapixels, and 4K videos in 1080p. As Long As You not, however, a slight decrease in the quality of Google photos is the most economical option for many. If you prefer to back up the original quality, Google storage plans range from $1.99 to $9.99 a month. 

Regardless of which service you use, if this is the first time you ever backed up your photo library, make sure that your iPhone is connected to a charger, and you are with a Wi-Fi network, to ensure that your battery doesn’t die, to speed up the process and save your data plan.

Triage to accumulate your iPhone memory

you want to really bring that all the junk on you? Exchange be faster if you cut off the excess now.

Open the settings app then go to General > iPhone store and wait until the page is loaded. It may take a few seconds to load, depending on how much stuff you have on your iPhone. If this happens, go over each suggestion and category, and decide what must necessarily remain, and then delete the rest.

With that done, time to create a new backup

Finally extinguished with the memory, apps deleted, and precious memories stored safely out of your device, it is time to make a backup copy of your iPhone. The process should go faster than before, because-in theory at least-there is now less stuff on your phone to back up. 

The easiest way to do this is to open the settings app, tap on your name at the top of the list, and then go to iCloud > iCloud Backup > now secure. Make sure that you are connected connect to a Wi-Fi network and a battery charger. 

Alternatively, you can use your computer, backup your phone, if you prefer. We have a guide to walk you through this process.
