YOUR iPhone can quickly become clogged with apps and photos, even if you have a lot of storage space.

This is especially the case if you have used different iPhones for years and have different apps that you have long forgotten but still want to keep.

Thankfully, Apple has a few tricks up its sleeve to clean things up a bit.

And the best part is that you don’t necessarily have to completely delete your favorite apps.

iOS has a handy app offload feature that basically removes the app from your phone but keeps it available in case you want it running again.

Better yet, any document or data associated with this app is also kept so you don’t lose anything.

Apple automatically offloads unused apps for you – although it’s not clear how long an app has to be abandoned for it to be selected.

How to Enable Offload Unused Apps

To enable Offload Unused Apps, go to settings.

Find app storeand then turn on the switch next to Unload unused apps.

Alternatively, you can manually select and select the apps you want.

Just go to Generalthen iPhone storage.

Select the app you want to remove and tap Download the app.

Are there any downsides to offloading unused apps?

However, there is a small issue to be aware of when outsourcing apps.

If an app is removed from the App Store, chances are you won’t be able to download it again.

And don’t forget, you still need a connection to download the apps again next time.

For example, it might not be a good idea to unload a hiking app and then download it while you’re on a long walk in the middle of nowhere with no available data.
