Unlike other portable media players, the iPod touch Apple does not provide memory expansion via microSD. This means that when you run out of space you have to resort to alternative solutions, such as canceling the "heavier" applications and using Internet services. cloud storage.

If you are in a situation like this and while trying to "lighten up" your library of music iTunes, you need more space on your portable player, here are some pointers on How to expand iPod Touch memory that could be useful.

If you want to know How to expand iPod Touch memoryThe first step I advise you to do is to free up some space by deleting superfluous data and applications from the device. To do this, go to adjustments iOS and select the item general from the screen that opens, then went to the section use and wait for the list of applications that take up the most memory space on the iPod to load.

At this point, all you have to do is analyze, depending on your needs, which applications you can remove from the device, paying attention to those that take up a larger portion of memory. In general, the items that consume the most space in the memory of a terminal such as the iPod Touch are the games and photo library. The former can be easily removed by selecting their name and pressing the button Remove application on the screen that opens.

As for the photo library, however, the discussion is different. Assuming you don't want to delete all the photos you've taken with your iPod, you need to open the app photos from iOS and select the Camera roll to make a selection of images that the player can delete. To delete photos from iPod Touch, just select the item edit located in the upper right, place the check mark next to the previews of all images to be deleted and press the red button first Eliminate (located at the bottom right) and then on the button Delete picture appearing in foreground on the screen. The same procedure also applies to videos, of course.

Another way to expand iPod Touch memory, although virtually, you are installing one of the many applications on the device cloud storage available on the App Store. If you do not know what I mean, I am talking about applications that are also compatible with PCs and tablets that allow you to have a kind of HDD online in which save your files and always have them at hand, regardless of the device used. In this way, you will have access to documents, music, videos and any other type of file without actually having them in the memory of the iPod.

As I just mentioned, there are a lot of dedicated cloud storage apps on the App Store. Here are some examples:

  • Dropbox - One of the most popular and trusted cloud storage services in the world. It is available for all major desktop and mobile platforms and has no limits on the types of files that can be stored on it. In the basic version, it offers 2 GB of free storage, but you can get more storage by registering other people through links that are generated in your user profile or by participating in contests that are launched annually on the Dropbox site.

  • Google Drive: another service that needs no introduction. Google online hard drive is available for Windows, Mac OS X, Android y iPhone / iPad and offers 5GB of free storage for all users. As for Dropbox, there are paid plans to increase the online space at your disposal and allow you to store documents, images, videos, or other files.
  • SugarSync: although it is less famous than Dropbox or Google Drive, SugarSync offers the same reliability in terms of online storage and allows you to keep any type of file up to 5GB (free). The paid and customer plans are available for both Windows PCs and Macs and Android devices.
