They have released their models with storage capacity of 16GB, 32GB, 64GB and 128GB.

However, the users who buy the 16 GB model and even the 32 GB model face the issue of less available storage capacity.

We recommend you to change it to 30 days or 1 year.
- Delete browser and app data cache:
Your browser and application caches are also eating up your storage capacity. It is highly recommended that you clear the cache of your browser and also for applications like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and others. They store a lot of files which are of no use to you.

When you enable this option, all of your photos will be stored in the HEIF format which is a new compression format. It will replace the JPEG format which usually results in more size of the pictures.
- Delete unwanted Music:
A lot of iPhone users use Apple Music to download a lot of music files. There must be some music which you just didn’t like after downloading or you don’t listen now. As unused music files take up space, it’s a good idea to go through your playlist and identify the songs you are not listening anymore and delete them.
