How Often Should You Clean Out Your Phone Storage

Phones these days are constantly on hand. It’s no surprise that they accumulate quite a bit of junk on a regular basis. It doesn’t matter how much memory you have on your phone. Chances are—your memory probably gets used up fairly quickly. The worst part about that is when you’re ready to take the next viral video and your phone just doesn’t have enough memory to even take a single photo. We hate when that happens. The solution is simple. Cleaning out your phone storage regularly should prevent you from ever running out of memory.

How often you clean out your phone storage should really depend on how often you download things into your phone or how often you take photos or videos. Photos and videos are often the biggest storage takers on phones. Purging through unwanted photos and videos at least once every month should give you a fairly healthy storage for a long time. Also at least once a month, you should go through your phone and delete apps that you no longer use or use infrequently. Even though they’re not in use, apps take up space on your phone that you could free up for something else.

Keeping up with your phone storage should become a habit for you. The more you do it, the less clutter you’ll have on your phone. You’ll also eliminate having to deal with a full storage when you actually need storage. You wouldn’t want to have to deal with the frustration when the time comes for a software update and you have to delete things you actually want to keep just because you’re rushing through the process. Purging your phone once a month of unwanted things should help keep your phone clutter-free, and it should also help you maintain a good amount of free storage at all times—making your phone work better and look better as well.
