😆 Give me back my space (or how to recover 2GB of space in #iOS garbage)

Jajajaja, finally recovered those 2GB

For some reason the freaking iOS take all that space in caches that you can’t access or release, it’s managed by the system 😒.

After doing the “ghost pictures” method (set the calendar back in time and go to recently deleted pictures…) I still had 2 GB wasted somewhere. The difference is spotted on what iTunes said my iPhone had as free storage and what is shown in my iPhone general settings.

I remember that one method to erase those caches is by filling your iPhone storage, doing that the system will hurry in deleting those files to give space for the upcoming. There are several apps that do this for you (in some way) by creating an empty file but set to fill the remaining space. Using HFS+ this is possible because by just creating the file and setting what is supposed to use the FS will create such big file and then the watchdogs will release the wasted space, but now with APFS that can’t be done, you can create a file and set what is the desired size, but the FS will not fill it, will be just an empty file with some K’s of space, then, no watchdogs is activated and no space freed. read more

iPhone to the operating room

Since a couple of months the iPhone had an issue, the earpiece speaker was too low, no matter that I had all the volume up it was pretty hard to listen to the one talking on the other side. I started to use the phone with the speaker in order to have conversations but I don’t like that way, mostly because sometimes I can’t properly listen and there is no noise cancelation meaning that if there is plenty of noise is quite probably the other person won’t listen to me right.

Pictures? From where?

I have no pictures in my iPhone, I removed all of them but storage says there are half GB if pictures there… where?

Are the images .of every app taking in count? buttons, icons, not pictures taken by an app, those go to camera roll. It’s pretty annoying

Incipio OffGrid battery case

I bought this battery-case last friday, and it works pretty good, it has 3000mAh, which gives me 1.74 battery time (if I don’t use the phone while charging).

Reasons to have a battery pack?. Well, I don’t like to be on the bottom of the battery, call me paranoid but I just don’t like the idea of having 0 power on a device (this happens with my laptop too). And knowing the iPhone has a 1715mAh battery getting it close to discharge is quite easy.
