YOUR iPhone might be lacking storage if you’ve had it for a while – but there’s an easy fix.

Apple has built special features that can quickly free up some storage.

There’s one button in particular that you should use.

It’s called Offload Unused Apps, and it does what it says on the tin.

The feature removes apps from your iPhone that you don’t use regularly.

But it backs up the personal contents of those apps on the cloud.

That means you won’t lose any of your settings or files in the apps.

But the physical apps will be removed until you want to use them again.

“Automatically offload unused apps when you’re low on storage,” Apple advises.

“Your documents and data will be saved.”

Apple will only offload apps that you don’t often use.

When The Sun tested the feature, it freed up an incredible 42.68GB of data.

And this iPhone trick could unlock even more on your own device.

Many recent iPhone models have shipped with 64GB of storage as standard.

So freeing up that much storage is a significant amount.

Simply go to Settings > General > iPhone Storage and then tap Enable on Offload Unused apps.

That’s not all

You can also use another feature in this part of your Settings called “Review Downloaded Videos”.

This is an automatic feature that collects videos you’ve downloaded to your iPhone.

Videos take up much more space than photos, and can easily gobble gigabytes of storage.

Go into Settings > General > iPhone Storage and look for the option to Review Downloaded Videos.

It will give you an estimate of how much space you could clear.

You can then go into the setting and see how much space individual videos are using, and then deleting the ones you don’t want to keep.

Check your downloaded videos as soon as possible to clear some storage space
