    I've followed the instruction for deleting apps. The icons wiggle, but an X does not appear. I've gone to the restriction, and "delete apps" is turned on. I have an iPhone 4. Any suggestions?

    What can I do to free up my phone's storage?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    The two best ways to free storage space are uninstalling apps and deleting photos and videos. If you want to save any photos or videos before deleting them from your phone, you can copy them to your computer before deleting them.

    No, you shouldn't need to do anything else to prevent future charges. If you see any charges on your account coming from the app, let Apple know immediately and dispute the charges with your bank.

    If you have a iPhone 5S or up, you can install iOS 11. It will let you offload some apps but keep your data and a shortcut.
