Your iPhone continues to signal a lack of free space in memory, and you can not solve the problem although you seem to have deleted all the superfluous? Here are the tricks to get rid of this annoyance and be able free up space on your iPhone to return to install new applications.
1. Check what the memory is occupying
Very simple: Settings -> General -> Free Space iPhone. This function shows you in a clear and graphically intuitive way how much free space remains on the iPhone, how much is occupied and from what: app, photos, multimedia files and so on. At the bottom of the screen you will then have the amount of space indicated by each app and data source. You will immediately have a clearer picture of the situation, and therefore a precise idea of where to intervene.
2. Select “Remove apps you do not use”
On the menu in step 1 you will see the “Remove apps you do not use” option. Select it, and it will automatically delete the disused app without deleting the data if you want to use it again tomorrow.

After all, many apps allow you to recover data, if and when you want to reinstall them in the future.
4. Update iOS

Do not worry, you will not have to really rent it and pay. Press the “rent” button twice to accept the notification that warns you that you do not have enough space. Now go back to checking the amount of free space on the Settings: if everything went well you should see a difference of several hundred megabytes.
