That's the reason why we need to clean up our iPhone to save more space. However experiencing storage issues is a very common problem for most of the iPhone users because iPhone is shipped with a limited storage capacity. The number of applications downloaded from App store can easily eat up the internal memory. Fortunately, you can take proper actions to ensure that you have always enough space left for the important apps that you find most crucial. In addition, when you are going to upgrade to the latest iOS version, it is really important to have sufficient space for that. So it is very important to know how to free up space on iPhone.


You can easily delete files and unwanted data stored in your iPhone by using great third-party software like iPhone Data Eraser. It has several different erasing modes to help user clean their device and get more storage. The best part of using iPhone Data Eraser is that the user interface is so simple to understand that anyone can use it without any problem.The instructions are direct and easy to understand in each step.

Below is a short introduction to each mode, please read it carefully:

iOS Optimizer: There are a lot of junks files (caches, tmp data, log, etc…) generated every minute when the iPhone is running. This is the biggest reason why the memory decreases so sharply.
