Apps vary in size from a couple dozen MB (megabytes) to hundreds of MB. If your iPhone doesn't have enough storage space, your apps may get stuck waiting.

How Do I Make Sure My iPhone Has Enough Storage Space To Download The App?

  1. Tap the Settings app to open it.
  2. Tap General.
  3. Tape Storage & iCloud Usage.
  4. Under Storage, you'll be able to see your iPhone's available storage space next to Available. As you can see, my iPhone currently has 18.2 GB of storage space available.

Pro Tips

  • 1000 MB = 1 GB. Apps typically don't take up much storage space — that's why you're able to download so many of them!
  • You can check how much storage space an app needs in the Information section of the app's Details in the App Store.
