Snapping photos, trying new apps and downloading music on your iPhone all provide hours of entertainment, but the fun comes at a cost. Apple’s handset can run out of space quickly with all this media, especially if you have only a 16GB (or the newly announced 8GB) model to work with. However, with an efficient use of cloud services, as well as the personal strength to ditch those apps you really don’t need, you can free up your iPhone for the content that matters.
While music, videos and photos are some obvious culprits when it comes to eating up free space, your text messages can quickly start taking up a few hundred megabytes if you're not careful. This is especially true if you send and receive MMS with photos or videos. Texts can be easily deleted from right within Apple's Messages app, so we recommend dumping any conversations that aren't crucial.
