Maccast Members

A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 204. This time we have a topic inspired by a question that came up on the Maccast Member Slack channel. What is the best way to clean up the storage on my iOS devices? Our iPhones and iPads can build up a lot of cruft over the years. Old apps, documents & data, photos, videos, music, messages, emails and attachments. They use up our flash storage and over time can clutter our devices. On our Macs it’s not too hard to find and clean these items, but how do you do that on iOS. This episode offers tips and tricks for finding and removing old data and files on your iOS devices to help you free up valuable storage space.
