Here's how you can save space on your iPhone. 

Posted by Adam Zhang on

We only review some of our photos a number of times and then it gets store in our phones and takes up space.

iCloud. The service provides a mere 5GB of free space, which doesn’t go far if you intend to back up all of your data, photos, documents, and mail to the cloud. While cool on the surface — iCloud allows you to back up and access photos you take on your iPhone across multiple devices — the service’s Photo Library facet ends up eating a ton of your iCloud storage space. Google Photos, on the other hand, allows you to back up unlimited photos at no extra cost. All you need is a Google account.

Once you have downloaded Google Photos from the App Store, run the app and you will be given the option to select the resolution you want to store your photos at. “High quality” will allow you to store an unlimited number of 16-megapixel photos and 1080p videos.

Once you’ve backed up your first round of photos, you can change the settings in the app to determine how often or under what circumstances you want the app to continue backing up your photos. By default, the app is automatically set up to back up your photos over Wi-Fi, but you can change it to use cellular data as well. Once you’ve uploaded your photos, you can access them in your favorite browser or using the app on another device.

You can also turn off the iCloud Photo Library completely. To do so, open Settings app on your iPhone or iPad and select iCloud. Then, click Photos and toggle each slider off.
