Some of you may know the trick, but the author of these lines is always surprised to meet people who do not know it.If you have a somewhat old iPhone with only 16 GB, 32 GB or even 64 GB of internal memory, you know how easy it is to saturate the storage of the device.When this happens, using the smartphone becomes tedious.You can no longer take videos and photos without erasing content stored in your photo library.

And yet we have a scoop.Photos is not the only application that uses a significant amount of storage. En fait il suffit d’aller dans les Réglages > Général > Stockage iPhone pour s’en rendre compte.Although our capture may seem to indicate the opposite (to my discharge, I take a lot of photos, has 256 GB of storage on my iPhone, and receives few messages via iMessage), the messages app is often responsible for useunreasonable storage.

Indeed, as soon as you receive an image or a video, by default, all the contents are stored on your device in full quality and indefinitely.Before being also sent to your other devices via the cloud.On which they will probably also be stored under the same conditions!Suddenly, little by little the memory of your devices fills without you having the impression of contributing directly to it.Fortunately there is a tip that immediately releases space and will prevent you from happening again.
