    hello

    My iPhone has become unusable due to full storage taken up mostly by “other” which is taking over 3/4 of total storage.

    I have cleared all the obvious storage but not helped at all.

    Is there an app that clears this “other” even if it costs. So I can get my phone back.

    There is no option of plugging it into a mac with iTunes.

    I am not doing a factory reset, unless it is my very last option, as I believe there is 3rd party options, just unsure which. I am hoping of an app I can download to clear this.

    Try magic Cleaner.....

    This is a free apps but asks for donation to stop adverts.

    You will have to clean junk more than once.

    I have been using it for quite sometime and so far have had no issues with it and it gives me back huge amounts of space.

    I have used these apps, they say they can only clear 10-100mb of space.

    That has not been my experience. Last week Magic Cleaner cleared over 2.5 gbs of space on my iPhone X.......

    I have done some “digging around” and found this “other” is actually “system”
