Why Can’t I Take Pictures on my iPhone

I got an issue “my iPhone wont let me take pictures because of storage“. To fix this issue you need to remove some unwanted files and free up the storage. So choosing Settings on this message will provide you with a list of apps and the amount of storage they are using. You can also reach this screen at any other time by going to Settings > General > Usage.

If you want you could select an app that is taking up a large amount of space(basically browse which apps take up the most space or an app that you can delete (deleting pictures or videos and music also creates extra space)) and then click on Delete app. That could or could not free enough storage to fit photos. Moreover you may not want to do this in case you like and value every single one of your apps.

Quick Fix Cannot Take Photo Problem on iPhone and iPad

In majority of the cases iTunes(your culprit) is loading your device with music and regularly causing this message to appear when you use the Camera or any other app.

You would free some space while you are out and by deleting some unwanted music from the device. What I to do is locate an entire album that I can live without and delete it using these steps(which is obviously hypothetical in my case ).

    • 1) Open the Music app on your iPhone.
    • 2) Select a particular artist (if you downloaded them legally) that has songs stored on the device you would like to delete.
    • 3)You can also locate a music track that is already stored on the device but if the track has a cloud icon that means it is not stored on the device(probably stored on iCloud). You will have to find tracks that do not have this icon.
    • 4) You then have to swipe left across the name of the song. A button is bound appear that says Delete.
    • 5) You than have to tap delete(putting a stone on your heart) and the song is gone forever. Repeat these steps any number of times unless you have freed enough space.

3) Select on your device then choose “Music“.
4) Uncheck the ‘Automatically fill free space with songs‘ button(Though I think it would be a checkbox).
5) Choose ‘Sync’.
