Check your storage
If you're moving to a lower-capacity device, you may need to optimise or remove some of your existing content. Find out what takes up the most space on your device in Settings > General > and tap [Device] Storage. Find out more about usage on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
Manage your storage
There are a few ways that you can manage or reduce the storage on your device.
Audio, films, series and books
Photos and videos
To reduce your usage with photos and videos, you can import photos and videos from your camera roll to your computer. To delete photos from your camera roll after you've imported them:
- Tap Select.
- Select the photos you want to delete.
- Tap the Bin button .
If you want to view the photos on your device after removing them from your camera roll, sync them from your photo library. When you sync your photo library to your computer, it optimises synced photos, saving space. You can also sync a smaller selection of your photo library to save space.
