Get Rid of “Other” Data on Your Iphone Every Time You Backup

Screen Shot 2016-05-01 at 12.05.53 AM If you’re like me and you have a iPhone 5 with 8 gigs of data, you know what I’m talking about, fucking thing fills up with data quickly.

What a lot of the “data” is, is something calling “other” data.

Here’s how you can avoid never having to say, “My shit’s fully, I can’t take a photo.”

I make no guarantees that the following steps will not destroy your phone. I can’t see how they would harm your phone, but I have only performed these specific steps on my personal iPhone and have found them to work well – use at your own risk.

In a nutshell, what you’re going to do is backup your phone, wipe your phone data and then restore your phone from the backup you just made.

  1. Plug in your Iphone to your computer
  2. Open iTunes, if it’s not already open
  3. Backup phone with iTunes
  4. On your iPhone, wipe the data by going to Settings, General, Reset On fon go to settings -> general -> reset -> Erase all Content and Setting
  5. Now go back to iTunes and restore your Iphone from the back you just made.

Before you do the restore, the iPhone will ask you a bunch of setup questions, don’t worry about them, as long as you can see your iPhone in iTunes, you’re all set to restore your phone.
