Whether you haven't cleaned your phone in months (hey, we're not judging) or have a password that's way too easy to guess, this nonintimidating plan will help you clean up and kick off a fresh start. Read more in the article found HERE.

      2. Best external storage for iPhones and iPads- The iPhone and iPad are limited in that their lack of USB or SD ports means there's no way of quickly getting extra storage, or checking out some photos a friend gives you on a memory stick. However, there are a number of storage devices and adaptors that can use WiFi and Apple's own Lightning port to connect, allowing for additional storage. Read more in the article found HERE.

      3. This trick can free up gigabytes of space on your iPhone or iPad- It seems like iPhone storage is always at a premium, especially if you have an entry-level model with just 16GB (an economic necessity for many an iPhone owner). It's the rare user who doesn't know the pain of trying to download a new app or snap a few more photos and seeing the dreaded "not enough storage" message. This unusual (and risk-free) hack can free up hundreds of megabytes, or maybe even a couple gigabytes. Read more in the tutorial found HERE.
