Storage space on your iPhone is precious. Even with the endless possibilities that services like iCloud and Dropbox can provide, there’s still a finite amount of space on your phone itself. If you’re looking to free up space in a hurry, perhaps to capture your kid’s Little League game or first ballet recital, there’s an easy way to clear out your iPhone’s Camera Roll. Before you wipe your device clean, though, make sure to back up any photos or videos you want to keep. Once you’re all set, head into the Settings app, find the Usage option in the General section. Scroll down to Photos & Camera, where you’ll see the amount of storage your digital memories are using. To clear them from your phone, swipe your finger across the Camera Roll icon to reveal a Delete button. Clearing your Camera Roll is irreversible, though, so be absolutely sure everything you want is backed up. After you tap delete, your iPhone is ready to use again… and fill up with new memories.
