How to Save Disk Space on Your iPhone


On gadgets like the iPhone where disk space is allocated and not expandable it becomes an issue when the disk space runs out and you have nowhere to run. After you have stored your music, multimedia, videos, phone contacts, and apps you find there is no more for anything entertaining on the iPhone. These are because of several reasons. Below is a guide to removing the piling disk space from your handheld.

Voicemails, emails and received multimedia in the incoming folders are some of the trash topmost the heap. So delete your messages and clear your inbox every now and then as well as deleting contact histories, packet data cookies and browser cache.

The iPhone still stores voicemails even after the manual delete and have to be cleared in order to save disk space.

The iPhone automatically clears voicemails after some period but if you wish to do it manually then follow the following process:

  1. Open the Phone button
  2. Go into Voicemail icon
  3. The Visual Voicemail list always includes an option below titled “Deleted Messages.” Open that!
  4. Next press “Clear All” icon to delete all voice messages to free disk space

Another issue with iPhone disk space is the music within. The same issue is also with the iPod Touch. Many people argue that there iDevices cannot hold the promised 10,000 songs capacity. This is because of the song quality. Songs on the iPod are naturally 192 kbps with others going as high as 320 kbps or even 1400+ kbps. These high bitrates increase quality and one can easily feel the difference in quality in the high bitrates and the average 128 kbps. If you really wish to save your disk space then lower the bitrates for your songs. After placing in Sync, Go into “iTunes’ from there into “Edit” then into “Preferences” and lastly into “Importing”.

Tap “Import Using MP3 Encoder”, and set the bitrates of your choice

In your music library, sort all your music according by Bit Rate.

Select the highest bit rate songs and then go into “Advanced” and tap “Convert Selection to MP3”

Then iTunes will convert all files to designated bitrates and if there are lots of them then let the computer progress overnight.

To prevent further issues of high bitrates then do the following.

In iTunes’ “Summary” tab check the checkbox called “Convert higher bit rate songs to 128kbps AAC”
and all onwards synced songs will be copied in 128kbps from higher bitrates.
