Why Is My iPhone Storage Full? (And What Can I Do About It?)

I love my iPhone. It’s not only a great phone, but a great texter, video- and photo-taker and -viewer, gaming device, and so much more. But all that wonderfulness has a silicon ceiling: storage capacity. If you’ve ever seen regular messages with variations of iPhone storage full, you know what I mean. Apple offers a variety of options for iPhone memory capacity, but show me the biggest iPhone SSD out there (like my iPhone 6s+ with 128 GB of storage) and I’ll show you a way to fill it, fast. How? iPhone’s Worst Space Hogs: Photos & Camera Videos Music Messages (especially if you send/receive a lot of photo and video messages) Games Other Apps Tip: You can see what’s stored (and where) on your iPhone by opening Settings > General > Storage & iCloud Usage > Manage Storage. iPhones Are Chock Full o’ Pictures Like other smart phone users, those of us with iPhones like to take a ton of pictures.

Creating your Digital Legacy with Mylio

I love talking to people about digital legacy. It’s a new problem, a product of the digital age that hasn’t had much consideration — how do you organize, safeguard and pass on stuff you can’t touch, like memories? So far, there are few solutions. Ancient humans told stories around the cook fire. Later, we took photographs to make memories tangible as they happened. We organized these into family albums, then got more creative with scrapbooks. But today, though we capture and share our memories like never before (we took over 1 trillion photos in 2015), most of them are intangible. Most of our pictures are somewhere in social media, websites, or  cloud services like Flickr, Google Photos, Apple Photos and Dropbox. We’re creating the most comprehensive data trail of any generation, yet we’re still in the infancy of managing our digital legacy. Take a moment and consider these important questions: Have I considered my digital legacy? Where do my precious memories and stories live? How will I pass on my story to my family and my friends? Am I in control of my life story? If you didn’t have an immediate answer to any (or all) of the above, you’re not alone. Most of us are too busy living for today and planning for the future to… Continue reading Creating your Digital Legacy with Mylio
