Whether you're using a 64 GB or 512 GB iPhone or iPad, running out of storage significantly depresses you. What's taking up all your storage space? The first big bite out of your iPhone storage is Photos & Videos, following which are other apps and games. To reduce the space these files take, there are three solutions: remover some unwanted apps, delete iPhone photos and videos, or transfer these precious videos to a computer to save them.
