Apple releases new products every year. The system updates are released usually twice. To keep pace with the upgrades or to get them easily, either you have to get them packed in the box every year or keep ample space on device to install the hefty updates. Most of the people I know prefer the former option, not because they could but because the space management is quite a daunting task especially when it comes to making room on one or two generation old Apple device.
Earlier, iOS 8 proved to be a installation nightmare as its 4GB size was too massive for users with older devices. This was also the reason that many users skipped the upgrade even after several months of the release.
Thankfully, some developers who have installed and tried the iOS 9 second beta luckily chanced upon a space management feature that could help many users who struggle with “space” issues.
So, when users will try to install iOS 9 on device running slow on space, the below message is displayed. This pop-up message offers to delete and then replace some apps in order to go ahead with the iOS 9 installation.
The Apple iOS 9 is quite efficient on managing space as it seems. The size has been reduced considerably which is 1.3GB compared to the previous 4.58GB of iOS 8. The auto app deletion and re-installation also come in handy wherein users don’t have to uninstall or remove the apps and then install it again. Additionally, users can utilize notification update where the installation can take place when you are sleeping or when you are using the device least. MacRumors also reports about a cool feature for developers called app thinning that lets them install necessary apps, keeping the space free on device.
