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.
- Plug in your Iphone to your computer
- Open iTunes, if it’s not already open
- Backup phone with iTunes
- On your iPhone, wipe the data by going to Settings, General, Reset On fon go to settings -> general -> reset -> Erase all Content and Setting
- 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.
