    I know I’m running low on storage. I don’t need a red dot showing on the settings icon. If I open settings and decline getting more iCloud space the red dot goes away for a few minutes then it’s back again insisting to get iCloud storage. Sooo annoying. I will clean up my phone when I want, and get more space when I feel like it. No need to shove iCloud storage plans on my face every time.

    Try loading "Hearthstone" to free up some space.

    It’s designed for people who don’t know how to do that.

    Couldn't agree more. Does anyone know of any way of turning off this notification?

    Completely agree, I like being on the borderline of my 5gb.

    I saw a youtube video of someone recommending using Google's photo cloud storage instead of iCloud to solve this and with no cost for unlimited photos. This assumes photos is what is using a lot of disk space on your iPhone.

    Here is the video

    There are a hundred ways that I could remove content from my phone. That's not really the point. I have around 4 Gb free, and am happy with that. I don't want to remove content from my phone, but I also don't want to have a constant message saying that my phone storage is almost full. Why can't I simply turn off that notification?

    Exactly. I like using most of my storage. I don’t see the point on having lots of unused space. I do empty my phone if I will be going on a trip where I need space for photos and video etc. but other than that I’m fine with my phone almost full.

    I completely understand your gripe however I'm curious how much storage you have left on your iPhone?
