- There are two places you can see this Spotify storage usage information. One is in the Settings menu, the other is in the Spotify app.
- Spotify uses iPhone storage space for the app, any downloaded playlists, its cache, and a few other extraneous reasons.
- There is an option to delete cache in the Spotify app if you are looking for a way to free up some storage space.
- Open the Spotify app.
- Choose the Home tab.
- Touch the gear icon at the top-right.
- Select the Storage option.
Some of the apps on your iPhone use more space that others. In some cases this is due to the actual size of the app while, in others, that storage space usage can be due to data in the app.
The Spotify app on your iPhone is about 100 MB in size but, if you use Spotify a lot, then it’s entirely possible that it uses considerably more space than that.
Downloaded playlists can use a lot of space, as can the cache that is created when you search for and listen to a lot of music in the app.
Our tutorial below is going to show you a couple of different places where you can see information regarding the storage space usage by Spotify on your iPhone.
