I take a LOT of pictures on my iPhone. I have a three-year-old and I can't stand not to capture the moment when she does something cute, which is like, all the time. After about a year, my phone got REALLY full. So, I took the plunge, saved some photos and deleted them but I noticed that I didn't gain any space in my phone. Then I found out I had a bug that saved all my deleted photos!

To fix my bug, I followed these steps:

  • SETTINGS
  • GENERAL
  • DATE & TIME
  • TURN OFF 'SET AUTOMATICALLY'
  • Set the day all the way to the beginning of how far back my phone would go.

Then go to...

  • PHOTOS
  • ALBUMS
  • RECENTLY DELETED
  • Go in and check each photo individually and delete.

I went in an checked my Usage (Under SETTINGS - GENERAL) before and after my bug fix. It deleted over 3 G in space!
