Apple will help you update iOS even if you don’t have enough storage


iOS users can tell you first hand that upgrading to the next iOS is not an easy task when you don’t have enough storage on your device. Deciding what apps you should delete to free up space can be troublesome. With that in mind, here’s some good news at that front:

Starting with iOS 9, Apple is going to help you with that. Aside from reducing the size of the update to only 1.3GB, Apple wants to ensure that their users with overstuffed phones can update to the new iOS.

New iOS update insufficient space warning

Those who don’t have enough space on their i-devices will see an option to “allow app deletion” within the “insufficient space” notification window. This feature temporarily deletes applications and restores them when the update is complete.

Seems like this new feature, coupled with the reduced size of iOS 9, will go a long way in helping people update to the latest iOS without agonizing over what apps and photos to delete. Of course another way to solve this is to opt in for a device wiih a larger capacity, but that’s not always feasible.
