I Need More iPad Storage!

YES! It's Thursday afternoon—which everyone knows as the day each week when Apple refreshes the apps featured in the App Store—and you've just discovered an app that will completely transform your instructional practices and, therefore, change your life forever.


You quickly begin downloading the app. And everything begins to go horribly wrong...



Ah! Even joking about this makes me sad.


If you're like me, you could use a few strategies to balance the storage space available on your Apple iOS devices and the Apple devices the students use in your class.

Two TSAs, Connie Martindale from Hough and Shawndra Shelton from Grove designed the following video to give you options for handling storage space on your iPad devices:

On iPad devices (and iPhone devices), most storage solutions involve deleting apps, removing songs, and/or uploading or downloading images and videos. Given the availability of cloud storage, simply moving these files from your device into the cloud allows you to gain space on your device without losing access to the files. Apps can be re-downloaded from the App Store at any time (for no additional cost) after they've been removed from a device. Photos can be uploaded and downloaded freely from free services like Google Photos or Shutterfly. Similarly, videos can also be uploaded and downloaded freely from free services like Google Photos or YouTube.


For a detailed tutorial on managing storage space on iOS, read this article from idownloadblog or contact your TSA for one-on-one assistance.

  1. I'd love to watch the video, but it doesn't show up on my newsletter. Is it a setting on my end, that needs changing?
