A Tale of backup and restore

When Apple released the iPhone 5, I got myself a 16GB CDMA version. I knew this space limitation meant that I have to rethink several of my on-device data concepts and strategies. Later on that. This article is talking about something else.

My strategies of managing with the 16GB limitation worked out pretty well for the past 6 months or so, but recently I noticed that I am hitting free space left in MB's. More in the last month because of the wonderful Appgratis™, which was sending out great deals everyday. If you haven't checked it, read my previous article here

Now I was facing the worst crunch of space. I considered deleting a few heavyweight apps or removing all of the music from the device. But then I remembered an article  which talks about gaining reclaiming space on iOS devices via a backup & restore. Time to try that out :)

Not every app is free in the app store. This doesn't mean that they are paid for ever. There are days when the developers decide to make them free for a limited time, or some third party encourages the developers to do so so that the app gains fame really fast. There are also 'bundles' once a while (Android/Mac/PC apps), but I haven't seen that in the iOS world yet.
