Though iPhone is trying hard to give its users an ample amount of space in their device, the truth is that most of the time, we run out of space. Sometimes, we don’t even realize the things that are eating up space on our iOS device. Most often, we end up deleting apps just to make some space. But you need to know that many other things consume space in your iOS. Keeping duplicate photos on your iOS device also eats a lot of storage on your iOS phone.
