Fix iPhone SE Internal Memory Full

Posted on Mar 29, 2016 by Jean to iPhone Data Recovery

Are you frustrated when iPhone SE internal memory is full with pictures, music, messages and other contents? Here is a quick fix, which also applies to iPhone 7/6s/6 & plus/5s/5/4s.

16GB iPhone SE Is Running Out of Storage

"I felt so sad when took out iPhone SE with 16GB storage and got ready to take some photos but it says insufficient memory. You have no idea how crazy I am about taking lovely photos. What should I do if iPhone SE ran out of storage? Only to delete the old ones? I can't accept the fact. What do you guys do when iPhone storage is full and won't allow you to save pictures to it?"

Since iPhone SE is designed with either 16GB or 64GB without being able to insert a micro SD card as an additional storage media, for people who tend to save large-size media files like photos, music, videos and ebooks, the storage seems to be consumed very quickly. So here comes the problem. What's the acceptable way to fix iPhone SE internal memory full issue? First, let's look at how users usually deal with the not enough space on iPhone devices.


"I did this by a very stupid solution. When iPhone SE told me the storage is nearly full and that I don't have space to install downloaded apps, I turn back to uninstall other apps...to remove one and spare space for the new one...even I feel really reluctant. "


"Your iPhone SE will continue to store videos and photos you've deleted for 30 days like other iPhone series on the latest iOS. This eats up a ton of space. Go to Photos > Albums > Recently Deleted > Select All> Delete. I do this every now and then, kind of help."


"If I don't feel like abandoning my favorite music or photos, I backup them up to iCloud or a computer through iTunes, and then safely delete them to free up some space on my 64GB iPhone SE."

Summary: Best Solutions to Fix iPhone SE Internal Memory Full Problem

To sum up, there are many favorable ways to free up some space on iPhone SE when it ran full. Basically, you did this by either permanently or temporarily deleting the existing contents, by which later you can make a restore.

1.1 Delete useless apps (especially games)

Since apps take up usually 10-50MB in size while games can be 500MB to 1GB, it's quite efficient to release a considerable amount of space by deleting some useless or seldom used apps.

1.2 Delete videos and books

You have to notice that videos and ebooks take up an equal size with apps. When you finished watching videos or ebooks, remember to clear them. 

1.3 Set messages to auto-delete

You message history eats gigabytes of space, too. It's a great idea to set messages to delete themselves automatically. Go to Settings > Messages and then under Keep Messages, set it to 30 days or a year.

1.4 Delete voicemail messages

iPhone SE, including other iPhone series, voicemails can quickly consume a lot of space. Don't try to wipe them all when your iPhone is warning you "not enough space".

2.1 Backup iPhone SE Contents to PC/Mac

The solutions 1.1 ~ 1.4 are mainly teaching you how to permanently delete data on iPhone SE, however, this might bring about regrets.
