I’ve had enough with the prompt “Storage Almost ” that frequently pops up on my iPhone! But I’m quite confused at “Other” occupies a large amount of space when checking the storage usage. What does Other mean? How can I get rid of Other space from my iPhone?
Most iPhone users seem to have unpleasant associations with Other data as they can pile up to a level where there is insufficient space for an app. To thoroughly clean them up, it’s essential to know what is Other on iPhone storage first.
The Other spacemeans data that iTunes can’t display or manage for you (just as the picture shows in orange in orange), consisting of apps’ downloaded data, Safari browser cache, Mail app’s cache, pages for Safari’s reading list, voice memos and more. Namely, iTunes won’t help you remove “Other” data from iPhone to free up space.
To help you out, I collect 3 free ways to clean Other space on iPhone for your reference.But note that they can only wipe Other space to some extent but not completely.
