If you find that certain apps are using a significant amount of storage and you rarely use them, you can offload them. Offloading an app removes it from your device but keeps its documents and data intact.

To offload an app, simply tap on its name in the app list and then select “Offload App. “

Delete Apps

If you want to free up even more space, you can delete apps directly from the iPhone Storage page. Tap on an app in the list and select “Delete App.”


Now that you know how to check the storage on your iPhone, managing your device’s space becomes much easier. By regularly monitoring your storage and following the tips mentioned above, you can ensure that your iPhone runs smoothly with ample room for new apps, photos, and other files.
