How did we live without our smartphones?
Well, your everyday life wouldn't be nearly as nice without it. You're constantly taking photos and videos that you share with friends and family around the world on social media sites like Facebook and Whatsapp
You make phone calls, You send thousands of text messages every year and, of course, there's so much more, like getting driving directions, finding out what time a store closes and checking your bank balance.
So, it's understandable that you cringe when you see a message pop up on your smartphone. The worst one is telling you that your battery is low, and you just arrived at a business meeting where you'll need it all day!
Yet, there's a close No. 2 when it comes to dreaded smartphone messages. That's "Your storage space is almost full."
Let's face it, you've deleted just about everything you can't live without, including photos and apps. Yet, you need more space, so you recklessly start deleting the big storage munchers, like Facebook, your bank account app, photos and videos.
Here are some of the best things to delete when you need space, and how to do it.
1. Delete apps
The way you delete an app is different depending on whether you're using an Android smartphone or iPhone, and which model you're using. However, the steps will most likely be similar to these.
