5 Ways to Free Up Storage on Your iPhone

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.

    What a great help you have been today with easy to follow directions and clear instructions!
    I am unable to delete photos that were added back to my iPhone 5s – 16 GB from my computer backup.
    Please tell me this inability to delete these albums is not a conspiracy of Apple to force me to buy more storage!
