How do I increase the storage capacity on my iPad / iPhone?

There is no way to "increase" storage on your iPad or iPhonoe, but you can clean up your device to make room for more photos and apps. Apple has made it easier to do this by adding a "Storage & iCloud Usage" section in the Settings app. This section will inform you how much storage you have used and how much you have left. Just navigate to the General section in the Settings app and tap the Storage & iCloud Usage tab to access the information. From here you can also tap the "Manage Storage" option to see a breakdown of which apps are taking up the most storage.
