Apple introduced the Offload Unused Apps feature with iOS 11 to help users with limited iPhone storage . Ever since iOS 11, apps can be offloaded automatically when you start to run out of built-in storage space. And the best part? It saves the apps’ data, so you won’t lose anything important if you need to install the app again.

To enable the feature, head to either iTunes & App Stores or General –> iPhone Storage in the Settings app. Then, on either page, enable “Offload Unused Apps,” and your iPhone will take care of the rest.

While the feature is simple to set up, it’s not necessarily as clear to disable should you ever want to. On top of that, you don’t need rely on your iPhone to offload apps for you. Instead, you can manually offload apps one at a time, if you’d prefer to have more control over the process.
