Clear some space with PhoneEx­pander

Mac Format - - IM­PROVE | IOS / MAC APPS -

1 Trash temp files

Click on Clear Tem­po­rary Items. PhoneEx­pander will build a list of caches on your de­vice that can be re­moved. To get rid of them all, click the Clear but­ton (which will de­note the space sav­ing). To be more se­lec­tive, use the check­boxes be­fore clear­ing the caches. Once you’re done, a sheet will ad­vise re­gard­ing how much was cleared, en­abling you to con­tinue (Delete More) or re­turn to the main win­dow (Fin­ish).

2 Re­move weighty apps

Click Re­move Apps. Again, the app will cre­ate a list of rel­e­vant items on your de­vice. Apps are ini­tially listed from largest to small­est. As with the tem­po­rary files, the process for re­moval is sim­ple: se­lect one or more items then click the Re­move but­ton. Note that in re­mov­ing apps from your de­vice, you will also re­move all as­so­ci­ated data and set­tings at the same time (un­less the app stores such things in iCloud).

3 Delete old videos

Click Clear Pho­tos. The in­ter­face here is dif­fer­ent from the oth­ers, in that it gives you a slider to de­ter­mine the age of what you want to re­move. Drag the slider left to in­clude older (and there­fore, likely, fewer) files. Use the check­boxes to se­lect whether to re­move videos and/or pho­tos, then use the menu to de­ter­mine where the back­ups of re­moved files go. Click ‘Backup & Re­move…’ to com­plete the process.
