Apple® iPhone® 5 - Check Device Storage

To check storage space if your device runs slow or crashes/resets, apps freeze when running them, or you can't save media, view this info.

From the Home screen, navigate: Settings Settings icon > General > Storage & iCloud usage.
Note The 'Used' section shows how much storage space is used of the total available

Note Notes:

  • Cache memory being used by your iPhone can be quickly dumped by turning your device off and then back on again.
  • To free up additional storage space, unused items may be removed from the device such as:
    • Apps
    • Music
    • Pictures or Videos
      Note Deleted pictures and videos are moved to the 'Recently Deleted' album and must be cleared to free up memory.
