Intentionally or unintentionally, we install dozens of apps on our iPhone or iPad, sometimes even in hundreds. These apps take up a lot of storage and make iPhone, iPad sluggish. This posts aims to provide a free way to clear space-hogging apps on iPhone, iPad without deleting app itself to free up iPhone storage. To achieve this, you need an iOS tune-up software-iCareFone.

“After my most recent sync/backup, I noticed that my iPhone is down to .33 GB of free space. This is quite surprising, as just a few days ago I had a full 3 GB free. A quick peek at the "Capacity" graph showed that my apps are taking up 9.7 GB of space, so the culprit must be in there. Is there any way to determine how much system resources an individual app is using? Clearly I need to empty out some trash, but I don't know where to start.”—from Apple Communities

To check which apps are hogging the most space, you can navigate to Settings on iPhone > General > Storage & iCloud Usage > Manage Storage. It is not only the apps itself that eat up the storage, but also many other unwanted files like app caches, app temp files, or cookies that hogs the iPhone/iPad storage. This is why many of us find that the iPhone/iPad is running slower and slower over time.
