Backup your photos

If you are using iCloud to backup your photos, you can delete them from your camera roll and create more space on your phone. Of course, if you do this, you are then relying on iCloud to keep them safe. Having a backup on a home computer is a wise precaution. You can delete them one-by-one, or click "select" from the camera roll screen, tick as many as you want, and delete them in bulk.

Remove unused apps

Unused apps can accumulate over months and years. Have a scroll through your menu: are there any games that you're bored of, any apps that are no longer useful? Tap and hold the icon and a small cross will appear in the top-left. Press that cross and you will delete the app, clearing more space.

Manage your music

If you're like me, your musical taste will be fickle. One week I'll listen to an album constantly on loop, but the next I'll be completely sick of it. Delete unwanted albums to make more room - they'll still be available on your computer if you want them back at a later date. To delete music, swipe a song from right to left, and a "delete" button will appear.

 Delete videos when you've watched them

Videos take up far more room than albums. Just a few films will take up several GB of your memory. I often upload a few for long journeys, but delete them afterwards to clear space.

Clear files downloaded to apps

Some apps are capable of downloading files: iPlayer, for instance, can download programmers so that you can watch them later. If you have videos downloaded that you no longer want to watch, go into the app and ditch them. The usage list above should alert you to any apps that are taking up a suspiciously large amount of space.

Delete the WhatsApp images

Now a days people share many photos on WhatsApp from the different areas, we download and see it and it remains in our device for longer periods occupying unnecessary space of our device. To save the huge chunk of space on the device, you should clear these images time to time; just say once in a week.

Delete unwanted Apps

This is one of the best feature of iOS 10 as per our reading and will make all Apple users beam with joy, especially ones with 16GB base storage devices. The annoying pre-installed apps like Stocks, Tips etc. can be deleted in iOS 10.

Kill Live Photos

Live Photos are one of the iPhone 6s most interesting features, but they take up more space than a usual photo. If you’re getting tight on storage, you can disable Live Photos by tapping the circular icon at the top of the camera screen.
