Photos & Camera are taking...
Photos & Camera are taking up 2.1GB on my iPhone 6. I have deleted the "deleted" photos and changed my date to a past date to clear out "ghost" files. How can I reduce this amount to free up space?

Hi

Let's try a reset first. Press and hold the power button and the home button together until you see an apple logo. That should clear up some unused memory.

If that does not give any more free space, The only way to reduce the size is to delete some photos and videos. Do you have a lot of photos in the iPhone?

Before deleting, you may transfer all photos from the iPhone to a computer so that they are saved.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you find any difficulty.

Thank you

Vinod

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
