Do you know how much space is left on your iPhone? Do you even know how much space it had to begin with?
Cofounder Raul Mujica of Kincast, an app for sharing videos with family, realized that many of his users didn’t. In fact, 40 percent had less than 10 percent space left on their iPhones.
When space is low, he says, your iPhone gets sluggish. It might crash, slow down, or fail to save things. That’s because the phone needs extra disk space for cacheing and saving temporary files.
“It’s one of those nasty little not-often-talked-about problems that more and more people are running into,” says Mujica.
To check how much space you have left, go to Settings > General > Usage. That will also tell you which apps use the most space. Or, if you’re a Kincast user, their latest version automatically sends you alerts when space is running low.
