iPad Storage Almost Full

1. Clear Safari Caches

Safari like other web browsers stores each page visit to a data cache in order to speed up loading time of the pages you’ve already visited. Generally speaking, periodically clearing the cache removes useless data without impacting your web experience too negatively. So it is not bad to clear cache in Safari from time to time.

2. Delete Photos, Videos and Music

Media files may take up large storage space. I suggest you can transfer those files to your computer or somewhere else for backup and remove them from your iPad to release more space. But pay attention that the Photos app will automatically saves images in a Recently Deleted folder that clears after 30 days. So go to PhotosAlbumsRecently Deleted and from there, delete the photos as well.

3. Delete Apps That You Seldom Use

You are recommended to delete apps that you rarely use. Navigate to the home screen, tapping and holding on the app icon, then wait for it to start jiggling. After that, tap on the X in the left corner to delete the app.
