检查你的总使用率

首先,评估你有多少空间. Go to Settings > General > [device] Storage. At the top, 你会看到一个颜色编码的条形图,概述了某些类别的应用程序在你的设备上占据了多少空间.

“设置”下的“iPhone存储”界面

You don't need to understand these numbers deeply. To update iOS, you'll want to have up to 6GB of free space. 如果你只是想有足够的空闲空间,以便拍摄新照片和安装新应用程序,而不用担心遇到障碍的话, give yourself at least 2GB of free space.

Note that when you add your available space and the used space, they won't add up to the total size of your phone's storage. 这是因为它没有考虑到操作系统所使用的空间.


寻找占用最多空间的应用

如果你继续往下滚动 Storage,你会看到你所有的应用程序的列表,按它们占用的空间大小排序.

Select any app, 新页面分两部分显示使用情况:应用程序本身使用的空间(顶部为浅灰色)和应用程序的数据和文档使用的空间. For example, the Podcasts app shown takes up 1.63GB total: 25.3MB的应用程序和1.6GB for documents and data (that's all those podcasts).

iPhone设置屏幕与应用程序大小

Sometimes, 这些信息可以帮助你看到,并不是应用程序占据了空间, 而是你储存在里面的东西. In this case, 你可以看到播客片段和照片过多的消息占据了设备的大部分空间. 对于播客,只要向左滑动,就可以从菜单中快速删除剧集.

瞄准你不使用的应用

Delete Them

Spotify设置屏幕

On that device storage page, look for apps you don't use.点击它们并选择删除应用程序. 任何购买的应用程序总是可以再次下载,从应用商店不收取额外费用.

要删除主屏幕上的应用程序,请将手指放在想要删除的应用程序上并按住不放. Apps will start to wiggle and a small minus symbol appears on each icon. 轻按,确认删除. 停止摆动, 有home键的设备按home键,没有home键的设备按右上角的“完成”.

Offload Them

If you want to temporarily disable an app without deleting its settings, like when you have to free up space to install an iOS update, betway体育允许你卸载它们. 它们会一直显示在你的主屏幕上,但你需要点击重新下载才能重新进入. Find the app on the storage list, tap it, and select Offload App.

You can also set up the automatic removal of apps you don't use often. Go to Settings > App Store > Offload Unused Apps and toggle it on.


检查你的照片和视频使用

The Photos app often takes up a lot more space than people realize, 让betway体育直接处理这个应用. Under Settings > General > [device] Storage, find Photos to see how much storage it's using. 如果你的内存超过1GB, 你应该考虑将照片和视频复制到云存储服务中,这样你就可以将它们从你的设备中删除.

If you have a Google account, an easy option here is Google Photos. Download the app, sign in, and tap your account icon on the top right. Select Google Photos Settings > Back up & sync 并切换“备份” & Sync to on. Make sure Google Photos has access to Photos (Settings > Google Photos > Photos > All Photos) and then, 当你上网时,你用你的设备拍摄的每一张照片都会自动备份到谷歌Photos,并可以通过你的设备和网络访问.

备份和同步屏幕

Google used to offer unlimited photo storage via Google Photos, 但这笔交易已经泡汤了, 因此,请根据照片和视频上传计入您的谷歌账户存储. If you're a Prime member, Amazon Photos still offers unlimited uploads; 这里有更多的选择.

Once iPhone photos have been uploaded to your cloud service of choice, 反复检查它们是否存在,然后将它们从照片应用程序中删除. 谷歌照片甚至会在上传时为你删除它们,如果你相信这个选项. 然后导航到 Albums > Recently Deleted. Tap Select, and then at the bottom tap Delete All. 如果你跳过最后一步, you won't free up any space for a month, as your iOS device hangs on to deleted photos for 30 days, 以防你改变主意.

你也可以选择将低分辨率的照片保存在手机上,而将全分辨率的照片保存在iCloud中. Go to Settings > Photos > Optimize iPhone Storage and make sure it has a checkmark next to it. (iCloud照片需要启用.)


涉水出溪

Photo Stream is a seamless way to share photos across iOS devices. 在你的betway体育设备上激活它, and any time they are on the same Wi-Fi network, 用一台设备拍摄的照片, like your iPhone, 会出现在其他人身上吗, like your iPad.

上传到我的照片流屏幕

这是一个方便的功能,但是 Apple allows up to 25,000 My Photo Stream uploads per month, so it can eat up space. 如果将照片存储在一个设备上对你来说已经足够了,请关闭“照片流” Settings > Photos > My Photo Stream 然后关掉它.


删除不需要的音乐

Multimedia, such as audio tracks and videos, takes up a lot of space. 在betway体育自己的音乐应用/服务中,有两种方式可以删除音频文件和视频.

From Settings

音乐存储屏幕

Go to Settings > General > [device] Storage > Music. At the bottom will be a summary of all the music stored on your phone. Delete albums or tracks you don't listen to by swiping left. 您也可以使用编辑按钮删除多轨道和专辑在一个镜头.

来自betway体育音乐应用程序内部

从应用内部

打开音乐应用程序. Go to Library > Downloaded, where you'll see music that's stored locally and taking up space. 要删除整个相册,长按它,弹出的菜单将包括一个 删除从图书馆 option. You can do the same for specific songs within an album; tap the three-dot menu and select Remove.

如果你想把音乐放回你的设备上,打开音乐应用程序,点击音乐库. 找到你想要的歌曲或专辑,点击右边的云箭头图标重新下载.

考虑流

If you want to have thousands of tracks at your disposal, use a 音乐流媒体服务 like Spotify (或betway体育音乐). If you're a Spotify Premium subscriber, however, keep an eye on how much you download for offline use. Storing all those playlists on your device can also eat up space.


Get (Rid of)消息

除非你因为感情上(或法律上)的原因喜欢和别人聊天, delete all "running late" or "what do you want for dinner?“发短信是为了腾出一些空间. 如果你忙于通过短信发送视频、照片和音频文件,那么你就能腾出更多的时间.

If you like to live dangerously, set texts to automatically delete. Go to Settings > Messages > Message History and choose to keep messages for 30 days or up to one year.


清空浏览器的缓存

另一个需要清除的小垃圾是Safari浏览器或其他移动浏览器的缓存. 对于Safari,转到 Settings > Safari. Tap 清除历史和必威betwayapp数据.

对于iOS上的Chrome,打开应用程序,点击右下角的三个点,选择历史记录. Then tap 清除浏览数据 to wipe everything out or Edit to erase specific sites. 您还可以导航到 Settings > Privacy > 清除浏览数据, which will let you delete browsing history, cookie和站点数据, 缓存的图像和文件, saved passwords, and autofill data—or everything at once. For more, read How to Clear Your Cache on Any Browser.


关于“其他”的说明

即使经历了这一切,你可能还是会发现自己在努力寻找一些空间. 这时你就会注意到: Other. The category is under your device's storage settings, a light gray box. 什么构成? 很多东西,但主要是缓存. The cache from images and videos in texts, 音乐和视频流, 和浏览器活动, 在其他方面.

其他iPhone存储

While you can't eliminate this other, you can reduce it. Go to Settings > General and go through your apps that have the most data. 如果你的流媒体或其他应用程序占用了几场演出,而你在这些服务上没有下载任何东西, 卸载应用程序并重新安装它们. 这将清除缓存.

如果您遇到一个 检查下载的视频 这个页面上的部分. 点击它会显示你缓存的视频,你可以一个一个地删除. 你可能还会看到 回顾大附件 which will show you file-by-file images, videos, PDFs, and other things that have been cached in Messages. 这些文件按照它们占用的空间大小排列,您可以一次删除一个.
