If you are currently running short on iOS space we have the solution for you now. As we all know one of the biggest down falls of iOS devices is the lack of adding more or extra storage space. Apple really should consider adding SD storage to iOS devices. Why they are so Hell Bent on Not having this option I can’t understand. Anyway, until that day comes we will continue to help you find ways around the problem. We have a way for you to claim storage space manually by removing unwanted photos, music, videos, Apps, and Safari Reading List. There is also another option labeled “other” storage. This is where things such as temporary data, cache files for applications, and items which help applications load faster are stored. It may be that these items are no longer needed by you or that particular application is requiring a lot of storage space while you aren’t even using this anymore. Either way the goal here is to add storage back to your iOS device so you can use it however you may need to currently.
Besides performing a new install of iOS or restoring your device as new, there’s no way of claiming “Other” storage other than this method. But thanks to this new Mac App called PhoneExpander users can now get around this much easier. This new Mac app allows users to perform several things which can increase storage. Users can reclaim the “Other” section which is one of the main goals for gaining storage space. W can also backup photos, videos, apps, and music files all within this application with just the few clicks of the mouse.
PhoneExpander is very simple to use and only requires connecting the iOS device with USB cable and clearing out what you don’t want or no longer need on your device.
PhoneExpander developers are still working to make the app even better. They are adding more features to improve its overall performance. It’s currently being provided as a beta which doesn’t cost users anything to download at this time. However, once the app is complete it will be a premium application which will cost $15 to download in the spring. It’s also only available for the Mac at this time. A Windows version will be available once completed.
