  7. 7
    On the Usage screen, we are interested in Storage, which is the second set of options
    .
    As you can see, I have 20.9 gigabytes used data and 93.4 gigabytes of available space.

  8. 8
    If I would like to see what is using up all of the space, I can tap on Manage Storage
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  9. 9
    A Storage screen will open, and you will see a list of programs along with how much space each one is using
    .

  10. 10
    If you want to delete some of the apps you no longer need that are taking up space, simply tap on the app name in this list
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  11. 11
    A short informational screen will open for that application
    .
    Just below that information will be a Delete App button. Tap that to delete the application.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    Tap Delete App again below the confirmation message that appears on the bottom of the screen
    .
    The message simply states that deleting the program will also delete any of its documents and data.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    Now, the app is gone, and you'll be taken back to the Storage screen
    .
    This is a way to quickly delete applications and restore excess space on your phone. Generally speaking, when I complete a tutorial on a game or application, I delete it if I do not regularly use that app. For now, let's tap on Usage at the top left corner of the screen to go back.

    .

    From here, a single press to the Home button will take us back to the Home screen
    .

  16. 16
    We can now double press the Home button, and swipe up on open applications or Windows to close them
    .
