Free Up Space on iOS by Clearing the Google Maps Cache


#App #GoogleMapsFree Up Space on iOS by Clearing the Google Maps Cache : If you find yourself constantly running out of space on your iPhone and can’t bring yourself to delete the apps or music that you use on a daily basis, there are a few tricks you can use to free up some of that precious space on your phone.

Weirdly, trying to download a movie larger than the space you have available gets rid of temporary files. You can also change the way you sync audio files to your phone. Or even use a third party app for photo storage.

And another handy trick for Google Maps users is to clear the Google Maps cache.

Before you do this you should find out how much storage Google Maps is taking up on your phone, because this trick is only handy if you happen to have saved offline maps in the past.

Offline maps can take up hundreds of megabytes on your phone, but otherwise, Google Maps shouldn’t take up a huge amount of space on your phone.

You can find this information by going to your iPhone Settings > General > Storage and iCloud Usage > Manage Storage. Here you’ll find a list of the apps on your phone, and you can see how much storage they’re taking up.

(Google Maps was only taking up around 95 Mb on my phone because I don’t use offline maps, and after clearing the cache, it shaved off only around 20 Mb.).
