Video: The first things you should delete to free up iPhone 6 storage

The greatest trick Apple pulled last year with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus was convincing many buyers to select higher storage versions. This move helped the company increase the average selling price of iPhones, as more buyers choose 64GB and 128GB versions instead of the basic 16GB device. However, many people chose the entry-level iPhone as well and they might be the first ones to run into potential storage-related issues.

One of iOS 8’s biggest pain points just earned Apple a class action lawsuit

Storage was one of the most annoying issues with the iOS 8 update for many users, who discovered they were not able to download and install the update directly on an iOS device because they did not have enough free storage available. Apple has not fixed this particular issue in subsequent iOS 8 updates. Furthermore, even on brand new devices, depending on how much on-board storage they offer, iOS 8 might take up the bulk of a device’s memory. SiliconBeat reports that a class action suit has already been filed against the company on these storage-related matters. More →
