    If we click on phone, then we can see what is taking up all the room. It will say how many gigabytes are being taken up by each type of media beneath it, including apps and games, music, videos, podcast, photos, and emails/messages, to name a few. So you can see what's taking up the most room. Then you know if you need to delete something.
