Delete mail attachments

The solution is closer to lifehack, there is no one ready-made solution.

But if you scroll down to old messages, then they will be loaded again and occupy the same space.


Podcasts are simply audio or video tracks, often of good quality. But unlike songs and favourite videos, most of them you are unlikely to hear once again. If you haven’t specified this option in Settings, it’s better to delete old podcasts. They are removed as most of things on the iPhone. Find a podcast and swipe it to the left.
