5 easy tricks to help you free up storage space on your iPhone

Curated via Twitter from Mashable’s twitter account….

If you’re on an iPhone 7 or newer with iOS 11 installed, Apple has a new "High Efficiency" compression format that saves photos in HEIF (High Efficiency Image Format) instead of JPEG and videos in HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding) instead of H. 264 (. mov).

Head into Settings > General > iPhone Storage and then click "Enable" under the feature.

Just go to Settings > General > iPhone Storage and scroll down "Review Large Attachments" and tap it.

So before you try any of these new tricks, you might want to try some of those older ones, like deleting duplicate photos and screenshots, backing up photos and videos in the cloud using services like Google Photos, or using this strange iTunes rental hack.

Take the Twitter app, it stores a bunch of stuff — photos, GIFs and Vines — in its "Media storage" section.

Once it’s flipped on, your iPhone will automatically delete unused apps when the storage is low.

They’re sent and saved as video files, and you definitely don’t want a bunch of this crap clogging up your phone storage.

In the past, we’ve covered some of the easiest ways to clear up your iPhone’s storage.

There are already dozens of ways to free up storage on your iPhone, but the issue always seems to rear its ugly head for just about everyone.

They’re hogging up precious storage on your phone, most likely as duplicates that you already have saved in your Photos app.

Here are some fresh new tricks that will help you regain some of your precious iPhone storage.

If you can afford it, we recommend buying an iPhone with maximum storage capacity.
