How to reclaim storage space on your iPad

How to reclaim storage space on your iPad | mrpbps iDevices | Scoop.it
If you’re running low on storage space on your iPhone or iPad, you may think you just have too many apps installed, or that your music collection is getting out of hand. But that may not be the case entirely. Instead, there might be a heap of hidden files that are taking up space on your iOS device. They’re not as easy to get rid of like apps are, but there are ways to free up this space.

When you plug in your iOS device to your computer and open up iTunes you can see what exactly is taking up space on your iPhone or iPad. You can also see the different categories the used memory is under, such as Apps, Games, Music, Movies, TV Shows and a mysterious category known as “Other.”
John Pearce's insight:

Michelle Berner is a great Australian educator who has developed a on-going range of excellent resources specifically for users of iPhones and/or iPads. Whilst her primary audience are students of U3A, (University of the Third Age), her resources are just as useful for all users. In this case Michelle demystifies and shows how to remove content from the "Other" category on your device.

The Ultimate Guide to Freeing Up Space on Your iPhone in iOS 7

The Ultimate Guide to Freeing Up Space on Your iPhone in iOS 7 | mrpbps iDevices | Scoop.it
Running out of storage space on your iPhone is annoying, but trying to free some up is downright aggravating. Until they figure out a way to throw a terabyte of flash memory in there, you're going to have to do some spring cleaning every now and then. The biggest storage hogs are usually photos and videos, but there's also the infamous other, which can claim up to 10 GB of space if you're not careful. Deleting a few pictures and movies might help you out of a jam, but if you're continually getting that "not enough available storage" warning, you've got to dig deeper. How to Free Up Storage
John Pearce's insight:

This is certainly an extensive list of things you can do to free up space including lots of tips on removing content from your device. It's worthwhile as a reminder of how many different things can affect performance.

John Pearce's insight:

Competition is always good if you are a consumer so it's great to see another option for sharing in addition to Dropbox. The additional free storage in Copy in comparison to Dropbox could be a winner though perhaps the more important consideration is that Copy offers another space in which to backup important files.
