How to Delete "Other" on iPhone when iPhone is Full of "Other"
"After upgrading my iPhone, there is about 10 gigabytes assigned to Other that I don't remember seeing before. How do I get rid of "Other" storage on iPhone and free up iPhone space?"
What is "Other" on iPhone
There's nothing more frustrating than a powerful and beautiful iPhone that has zero GB of storage left. The "Other" data often occupies a great amount of space and it just seems to grow bigger over time. Maybe you don't want to wipe iPhone with factory restore, but still need to regain some of your storage space for a new app, album or video.
"Other" is mainly comprised of data that you probably no longer need, including:
- Junk files that get created while you install, run or use an app
- Offline files
- Browser cache
- Safari bookmarks
- Text messages and attachments
- App cache
- Script files (web)
- Sync-failed media files
- Partial downloads and more
