Safari as other browsers often creates lots of caches and cookies. Its mobile version is not an exception. Go to Preferences – > Safari -> Clear History and Website Data.

Step 5: Remove Unneeded Photos and Videos

It’s rather about service photos, screenshots, bad photos (we often make a few photos, and then to select the most successful forgetting to delete others). Also here we can refer to a picture of Instagram. Or any other application that is stored in a separate album or Camera Roll on your iOS device by apps’ defaults.
