Be careful here, though, as it won’t tell you which apps it offloads.What if you want to delete an app’s documents and data rather than the app itself?Many apps build up a cache over time, which can take up a lot of space.Unfortunately, the only way to delete that cache is to delete the entire app completely and then reinstall it.Some apps might have their own way of deleting this kind of data in their own settings, so check there first.RELATED: The Messages app is a huge culprit when it comes to storage space.If you scroll down, you’ll see a list of the apps you have installed, listed in order by how much space they’re taking up.
Keep in mind that you only get 5GB free with your i Cloud account, so if you want to store a lot of photos using i Cloud Photo Library, you’ll want to pay for more i Cloud storage.
To do this, tap on the Photos app in the list on the main storage screen.
From there, tap on “Empty” next to “Recently Deleted Album”.
If you don’t want to completely get rid of everything associated with that app or game, you can instead tap on “Offload App”.
This will delete the app from your phone, but will keep all of the documents and data associated with the app installed on your device.
Instead, there’s a 30-day grace period where these files are moved to a “Recently Deleted” folder in the Photos app (much like the Recycle Bin on your computer). This makes it easier to recover photos if you accidentally deleted them, but it can take up more and more space over time.
