Apps are getting larger update-by-update. How do you manage that?
I’ve noticed the apps on my iPhone and iPhone are taking up lots of space in storage. They are only getting larger and larger update-by-update.. (and some apps update too often) I even came across a research showing that it’s fairly common to see the apps that have increased in size 10 times or more in the last few years.
I’m now worried about hitting the storage limit shortly without installing anything new or download videos only by updating the apps.
Apps are currently taking up about 25gb on my iPhone. Would they end up doubling or more after a few years? Are there any way to do some sort of forecast although it would depend on what apps you have.
I believe certain kinds of apps get bulkier quickly than others – social media apps I assume. What other apps grow quickly in size with updates?
Do you guys do anything to manage app taking too much space? I tried delete and re-install to clean up data in the app, e.g. facebook. It does give some space back but the app itself getting larger seems out of control.. Would Apple do something about it..? It’s really frustrating to worry about the space all the time..
Feel free to chime in.
