One of those “things” is the collection of photo-messages, video-messages and voice messages that you acquire over time.
I never realized this until doing the research for this post, but apparently your messages are saved for… well….. forever. 😯 (that’s a long time!)
And if you get a lot of pictures, etc, via the messaging app, your memory could be taking a serious hit.
iOS8 gives us the opportunity to have a little control over that.
Here is how to make your own choice about message-saving:
Go to Settings > Messages
Slide down, and you will see a place for “message history.” The default is to keep messages FOREVER.
Tap on “forever” and you will be given two additional choices: 30 days or 1 year.
By nixing the “forever” choice, you’ll be saving memory that would otherwise be lost. Every little bit helps!
