You know every iOS update has new features, bug fixes, and security enhancements. However, with each update, your device’s storage space shrinks, leaving you with limited space for photos, videos, apps, and music. If you’re running out of storage space on your iPad and don’t know what to do, don’t worry. We have the top four ways to free up space on your iPad so you can enjoy more of what you love without worrying about running out of space.
1. Remove Apps You Rarely Use
One of the easiest ways to free up space on your iPad is to delete unused apps. You may have apps you needed at one point but no longer use. To delete an app, press and hold its icon until it starts to jiggle. Then, tap the “X” button. On the options list, tap Delete. This removes the app from the phone—not just the home screen—freeing up valuable storage space.
2. Remove Apps Without Permanent Deletion
If you don’t want to delete an app permanently, you can use the Offload App feature to remove the app’s data while keeping the icon on your home screen. This feature doesn’t remove the documents and data saved on iCloud. Access your iPad’s storage in Settings, find the app you want to offload, click on it, and then select Offload App.
3. Manage Photos and Videos
One common reason for running out of storage space on your iPad is having too many photos and videos. To manage your camera roll, go to General in Settings on your device. Select iPad Storage and then Photos & Videos. From here, you can choose to get or increase iCloud storage, which automatically saves your full-resolution photos and videos in the Cloud and keeps only device-optimized versions on your iPad. You could also select Review Personal Videos or Review Personal Photos to find and delete photos and videos you no longer need.
4. Disable Automatic Downloads
The best way to save your iPad’s storage space is to turn off automatic downloads for apps, music, and books. To do this, select App Store in your iPad’s settings and toggle off features you don’t need, including automatic downloads.
