iPhone Storage Almost Full prompt.

Apple doesn’t provide, at this moment, an iOS feature that allows iPhone and iPad users to delete temporary files from their devices. Such a functionality could be used, every now and then, to free up storage space. You’ll be surprised that the average Apple smartphone can collect up to more than 1 GB of unnecessary files. The Clear History and Website Data option in Safari, might be the closest functionality to what we are looking for. However, this is a local option for the built-in web browser and not a large scale feature that cleans the entire iOS environment.

Happily, you can easily delete temporary files from your iPhone and iPad with the help of a third party software that has to be installed on your computer before proceeding. I’m talking about iMyFone Umate available for both Mac and Windows machines. This computer program allows you to delete clutter from iOS in only three clicks. Connect, Scan and Clean it’s as easy as saying 1, 2, 3.
