Editor's Notes:

  • There's no standard for how much space is good to keep free on your iDevice, but as a general rule, it's good to leave at least 500 MB-1GB of free space when you can. This frees up enough room for apps to store data so you don't have to worry about crashes.
  • For important data, you should backup before you clean up your device. iCareFone offers flexible backup choices for you.
