You can't clean the junks files with the default method by iPhone. You can only erase all the settings and content, which is not what you exactly want. However, there exists an easy way to delete the junks files on all iPhone models.

Apple gives no way to do this from the phone itself. The only function remotely like this is iOS 8's auto clean function that only triggers if all the planets align right when your phone is running out of space.

The
good news is that there are a couple of third-party programs being
capable of doing cleaning things in a much more comfortable way - safewiper. You are
totally free to choose the junk files you'd love to delete it, no
matter it's the app cache data or history.

I also faced the space problem regading the space in the iPhone, and don't know that my iPhone has lots of duplicate pictures and when i cleaned it with this app Duplciate Photos Fixer for iPhone, i got 2.4 Gb space in my iPhone. and i think that's a lot. I'm very happy with this.

Macgo iPhone Cleaner is free now, you can download it directly on the official website.

When I update to new iOS 8, I used it, it help me free up about 50% storage space. And I used it regularly to keep my iphone fluent.

I don't suggest you update your iPhone 4s to iOS 8. If you wanna try, I recommend you a software for cleaning the cache of your iPhone, that is Macgo iPhone Cleaner, but you must through Windows or Mac. Macgo iPhone Cleaner for Windows is full free now.

Don't even think of doing that update. It will slow your 4 down, much to Apples pleasure, because it pots pressure on you to buy the latest.

There comes a point when Apples drops support for older phones. Your 4s is just within the update window for iOS8 but as you have found requires a lot of space. If you do not have a pressing need to update then don't. Otherwise you will have to delete many games and other apps to make room. The iPhone doesn't really have junk files that build up taking up space. Unless the app is storing additional data in which case you'll need to delete it through that app. You'll probably want to do some research and see if the upgrade is even worth it on a 4s.

Delete more. There comes a point at which upgrading a phone is impossible on a given device without purging large amounts of files, sicne garbage collecrtin is so poor that they get filled up with junk you can't access.

PS, if you have a computer or other transferable location at your disposal, you can copy files to from the phone, and so instead of deleting to retain them.
