What is included in “others”
Contacts, messages, MMS and other types of iTunes are included in the “others” section of iTunes application cache. There is also data that, for whatever reason, iTunes is not able to recognize.
How to delete content that appears as “others” in iTunes
Uncheck the sync box automatically
If you want to eliminate more space, another thing we can do is delete application cache. Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp, Telegram, etc., can store photos, videos and other documents that can take up a lot of space. For example, Telegram has the option of clearing the cache every week and, even so, I usually have many gigabytes busy.
The bad thing about eliminating caches is that it is a tedious process and we are likely to eliminate some that are not really taking up much space.
Trying another recalculated
There is another possibility, but it is the last thing we have to do, after trying the two previous methods. We do the following:
- We open iTunes with the iPhone, iPod or iPad connected
- Uncheck everything we want to synchronize, except applications.
- We apply the changes.
- We mark again what we want to synchronize.
- We apply the changes again.
If we do the three methods above, we will delete all or almost all of the “others” content in iTunes.
