Optimizing IPhone X Storage: Tips And Tricks

While iPhones and most technology are developing every day, not all features are keeping up with our needs, such as limited storage space. Whether you use your smartphone for photography, apps, or music, you’ve likely hit a breaking point once in your life when it comes to storage.

There are many ways to get more storage available on your phone, such as buying a higher spec iPhone with more memory, but this is quite an expensive option. There’s nothing worse than the message “no storage available” popping up when you’re just about to take a picture. Your first thought might be that you’ll have to delete all your favorite pictures from the holiday you went on, or your favorite songs from your playlist.

You may not know it but there are many other ways to regain some space on your iPhone without deleting the things that are important to you. Being ruthless with deleting files on your iPhone will always help, but there are several tips you can follow before you get to that stage. Here are some suggestions for a quick phone clean up.

The first step is finding out what exactly is taking up the most space. Go to the settings app and click through to storage and iCloud usage. Then go to manage storage, where you should be able to see a list of every app, in order, and just how much space they are taking.

Clicking on a specific app will show you two key pieces of information:

1. The amount of space used by the app

2. The amount of space used by the app’s documents and data.

For example, if you were looking at your photos and camera app, it will tell you how much space the app itself is taking and how much the photos themselves are using.

You should be able to use this information in the storage usage section to guide you through your iPhone. Think about what apps you prioritize and what apps you haven’t used recently. For example, if last summer’s holiday app is taking up space and you haven’t used it in over a month, it probably isn’t very important to you, so consider whether you really need it? Remember, if you do delete it, you can download it again whenever you like.

After perusing all the apps, I guarantee there will be at least one app that you forgot was even on your phone and you probably haven’t used it since you first downloaded it. So, be brutal and just delete it.

Even if it’s an app you’ve paid for, your details will have been saved, so you can still download it at any time, free of charge.

While photos and videos on your gallery may hold a lot of meaning for you, they do take up far more space than you realize. While you shouldn’t delete these forever, it is a good idea to back them up so that they are available to download at any time. You can use Google Photos or iCloud to back up images and videos rather than storing your entire photo and video history on your device. Another great option is to use a Dropbox account linked to your iPhone – this allows you to back up your files directly from your phone, rather than connecting it to a laptop or desktop Mac.

If you don’t want to back up your photos and videos somewhere like Dropbox, then I would recommend going through your gallery and deleting photos/videos that may have been duplicated. For example, you may have a photo that has been sent to you multiple times. Photos and videos that you don’t need anymore can be deleted, as they all add up, and before you know it, you have deleted 100 photos.

Deleting conversations such as text messages or WhatsApp messages is a very good way to free up your storage. If you have conversations from over two months ago, or if you sent a lot of images in a text, then it will be using up a lot of space. Chances are, you don’t need those 100 messages or the photos, either, as they are already in your gallery, so deleting your conversations is a good option.

What Is Mitosis?

Mitosis is a complex division of a single cell, known as the “”mother”” cell, into two genetically similar cells, known as “”daughter”” cells. During this process the nuclear chromatin (located in the cell’s nucleus and containing the DNA of the cell) is duplicated, and then split, creating 46 chromosomes(92 chromatids) for each of the “”daughter”” cells. The process of mitosis is made up of phases, sometimes including the preparation of the cell for division, interphase, while always including prophase, metaphase, anaphase, and telophase. The easiest way to remember the phases of mitosis is PMAT. Interphase is the pre-division of the cells, when centrioles form. Prophase is when the cell proactively begins mitosis; chromatids condense to chromosomes, centrioles separate, microtubules develop from the centrioles, trapping the chromosomes. Metaphase is when the chromosomes line up at the center of the cell. Anaphase begins the separation of the chromosomes into chromatids on each sister side, with microtubules pushing and pulling. Telophase and cytokinesis complete this process by duplicating the organelles of the cells and then severring them.


The pre-division of mitosis is interphase, during which the cell is structurally composed of the outer cell membrane, internally is a centrosome with two centrioles and a nuclear membrane consisting of a nucleolus and duplicated DNA in the form of chromatin. The duplication of DNA is the cell’s way of preparing to split, allowing the two cells resulting from mitosis to have genetically, numerically equal DNA.

The next phase of mitosis is prophase, during the early stage of which, the chromatin inside of the nuclear membrane condenses into chromosomes, which is fundamentally two chromatids attached by a centromere. The two centrioles separate and begin to project microtubules, also known as asters, which begins to form the mitotic spindle. Going into the late stage of prophase, or prometaphase, the nuclear membrane is dissolved along with the nucleus, while the centrioles continue to separate and move to opposite ends of the cell, completing the mitotic spindle. The newly released chromosomes are trapped by the microtubules while two kinetochores begin to develop on each centromere, this is where the microtubules will attach to the chromosome.

The third phase of mitosis is metaphase, during which the microtubules finally connect to the chromosomes by the newly formed kinetochores. All the chromosomes are then lined up in the center of the cell to form the metaphase plate. At this point there are chromatids equally split, but still connected, at the equator of the cell.

Anaphase begins the actual separation of the chromosomes, into equal chromatids on each side of the equator. During this phase, the microtubules attached to the kinetochores shorten, separating the chromatids at the kinetochores, while asters that are unattached to chromatids assist by pushing apart, therefore elongating the cell and aiding in separation. Anaphase ends with both polar sides of the cell containing equal duplicated chromosomes from the original cell.

The final phase is telophase, during which the duplicated cytoplasm and organelles appear, along with the nuclear membrane and nucleus, the cells should basically mirror each other at the cleavage furrow. Following telophase is cytokinesis, or the division of the newly formed sister cells. The centromere on the chromosomes disappears and the chromosomes return to chromatin. Once the cell is completely divided, mitosis has ended, resulting in two molecularly identical cells.
