This will clear up a fair amount of storage on your device, which will help you ensure it does not get whole again.
Delete or move old videos and photos:
Over time, many downloaded or recorded photos and videos will be stored on your iPhone. This takes up a significant chunk of your storage. To identify the videos and photos you do not need, delete them from your device. You can even move these files from your iPhone to your PC in a secure location.
