From someone who’s used every iPhone and every major iOS release since the original iPhone launched in 2007, I can tell you that decluttering your iOS devices is a necessary but difficult process.

There are a few ways to declutter your iPhone or iPad. The first is to go through your apps and remove the ones you no longer use. This might seem like a no-brainer, but it’s amazing how many people never do this.

To do this, simply hold down on an app until all of the apps start wiggling. Then, tap the “x” on the apps you want to delete. You can also do this by going to Settings -> General -> Storage & iCloud Usage -> Manage Storage. This will show you a list of all the apps on your device and how much storage they’re taking up.

Another way to declutter your iOS device is to remove old, unused files and data. This includes things like old iMessages, photos, and videos.

To delete old iMessages, go to Settings -> Messages -> Keep Messages. From here, you can choose to keep messages forever, for 30 days, or for 1 year.

To delete old photos and videos, go to the Photos app and tap on the “Albums” tab. From here, you can delete entire albums or just individual photos and videos.

Finally, you can declutter your iOS device by resetting it to its factory settings. This will delete everything on your device, so make sure you back up your data first!

To do this, go to Settings -> General -> Reset -> Erase All Content and Settings.

Decluttering your iOS devices is a necessary but difficult process. However, by taking some time to go through your apps, files, and data, you can make some much-needed space on your iPhone or iPad.
