D)When logged into the app, turn on backup and sync which will be visible in the apps settings. Keep wifi network on to make sure the process is sped up.

Step 3: Otherways to Clear Storage

1.Another way to free up some storage is deleting music off of your IPhone. If you use apple music, it generally takes up a lot of storage from your IPhone. An easy way to get rid of the unused storage is to delete albums and songs you don't currently listen to at the moment. If you use apple music, you could always just go back and download newer music and delete the old.

Speaking of music, you could also just add songs to your library without downloading and just listen to the songs using mobile data or wifi.

You can choose certain things to clear or clear all.
