iFreeUp clears junk files from your iPhone or iPad, such as those created by apps or leftover system logs. The app also safely shreds photos, music, and videos to prevent retrieval from recovery software. Besides cleaning, iFreeUp allows you to manage and transfer files between your iOS device and your Mac.
Easy to use: iFreeUp’s easy-to-navigate user interface will get you going in no time. Choose between two tabs: Quick Clean lets you scan and take out the trash, while File Manager lets you access apps, photos, music, and so on, to export and securely delete them.
Transfer files quickly: IFreeUp shines in its ability to swiftly transfer files from your iOS device to your desktop. If you don’t want to be bothered by iTunes and iPhoto, for example, iFreeUp is a great alternative way to grab files from another device.
Tidy but not clean: iOS itself does a pretty good job of keeping junk files to a minimum. The system files and leftover junk on our system took up only a couple hundred megabytes of space. Unless you’re desperate for space on 8GB or 16GB devices, it’s more effective to delete photos, videos, or music.
8.3 coverage a bit buggy: We saw minor hiccups running the latest version of iOS. IFreeUp would not recognize files on devices running iOS 8.3. Just eject, unplug, and retry for the correct response.
IFreeUp does a good job of removing junk from your iOS device — but there is not much trash to take out. The app works better as a file manager for your devices. You’ll get better results using iFreeUp to delete files manually rather than relying on the automated scan.
