Deleting iTunes music, movies and video if they’re synced from iTunes to the iPhone is a good idea. From this same Manage Storage screen, tap on Videos or Music and iOS shows the files stored locally, together with the room they’re taking up.

Remove apps that are not in use anymore. Go to Settings> General> Usage> Manage Storage. A list of apps and delete the ones that are rarely used.

Another option to clear out photos and videos is with the use of other apps like Dropbox and Google Photos. Apple’s iCloud service can be used to move photos and videos off the phone by just plugging in the device into a Mac or Windows computer and copy the files off manually that way.

Deleting files from other sources like the browsers installed on the phone is another option. From the Settings app, tap Safari> Clear History and Website Data to remove all locally cached files from the phone.
