Who did not suffer from a lack of storage space in Iphone Because of the media from The WhatsApp Throw the first stone. But did you know that you don’t need to take drastic measures like scanning an entire conversation, whether private or in a group, to resolve this?
Before you take drastic steps — like scanning your entire WhatsApp group, for example — you can check your app’s storage settings. You can manage, select and delete individual media — such as photos, videos, screenshots, audios, and memes — so that you keep the content of the conversation as it was, just by deleting the heavy media.
Another feature is that WhatsApp manages items that are considered “frequently forwarded” – usually received in groups of family or friends – so that you can select and delete whatever doesn’t make sense to you to keep taking up your device’s storage.

How to clean WhatsApp and free up space on iPhone
Step 1: Open WhatsApp on your iPhone. In the lower right corner, enter “Settings”.
Step 2: On the next screen, enter “Storage and Data”.
Step 3: At the top of the screen, tap to enter Manage Storage.
The fourth step: In the Analyze and Delete Items section, you can find media that iOS considers too heavy for the app to store on your device. You might see this section divided into two categories: items larger than 5MB and files that are frequently forwarded, either by groups or in private conversations. In any section, you can log in to explore, select and delete media individually.
Fifth step: Scrolling down, you find all of your conversations, whether private or in a group, in order of heaviest relative to the total media stored in the conversation. On the same line, you find the total length of the conversation. In any of the conversations or groups, you can join to explore, select and delete media individually.
Sixth step: As a more drastic alternative, if you want to do a more drastic cleanup, you can simply drag a conversation or group to the left side, tap the three-dot icon, and tap More.
Seventh step: In the options tab that will open on the screen, tap to clear an entire WhatsApp conversation or group. Note: If you have favorites, you can choose to keep them in the respective conversation or group.
