How to Remove “Other” Data From iPhone :- Well, we are always here to solve your problems and today for this problem as well we may have a solution for this as I also at some point had to experience this problem on the iPad 4 (retina display) 16gb whereby I had over 2gb as “other space”.
First and foremost “other space” should be somewhere in between 800mb and 900mb – these are the regular preferences, apps, syncing data (not the actual photos your contacts you may sync at a time).
By the way, if your iOS device is jailbroken then you don’t have worry about the other data because in Cydia a popular app iCleaner For iOS comes, it will help you to remove all the unwanted data storage on your iPhone or iPad.
How to Remove “Other” Data From iPhone/iPad
- Well, in order to solve this weird but interesting problem what I did was that I plugged my iPad into the computer and did the normal sync with the iTunes software and then I ejected the iPad.
- I had to then turn the iPad off by pressing the on/off button for a very long time and then sliding across to power down nothing fancy just the usual stuff. Then after this, I had to wait for 5 – 10 minutes. Well after this I turned the iPad back on and waited for another 5 – 10 minutes.
- I then connected the iPad back to my PC and opened iTunes I noticed that the 2.74gb “other” space reduced to 835.4mb within a few seconds and this turned out to be one of the ways to get into the application and get going with some of the best ever reduced other space.
- I downloaded the iExplorer app and installed it (free version will also do the trick if you don’t already have the other way)
- Then you should have iTunes already open with the iPad already connected.
- Open the iExplorer app and click “demo” button Under your iPad navigate to the following locations Media> Photodata> Thumbnails Here you will see the following file with some weird names such as- 158×158, 240×240, and 332×332 with the extension .ithmb – this would make a note of these file sizes and you are going to have a look at a smaller file size in the other space.
- Well now comes the fun part and all you gotta do is press Right-click on each one and hit the delete button and click ok if a warning sign comes up in this one.
- Well, now we have to get into the eject button of iPad using the iTunes app.
- Close any open apps present in the iPad.
- Now what we have to Do is a hard reboot – we gotta now hold the home button down and then the on/off button together until the screen goes black and then it would easily get turned off – this would take a short time of 10-15 seconds to do so.
- Sometimes the iPad may reboot by itself if it is well maintained and ready to go, and sometimes it may not and if it doesn’t do so, then you should use the on/off switch to turn it on.
- Open up the iTunes store or iTunes app and then you should start the iExplorer and navigate to Media> Photodata> Thumbnails then once again you will see the same files you just deleted for yourself – but instead of being the same size you should make a note of this one and, they will be considerably smaller.
- Now you are supposed to go to iTunes and check the info about your “other” space and should be within the 800mb to 900mb
