    I'd delete the account and add it again. Make sure you have the details (server, password, etc. handy if needed)

    Good luck!

    Try going to the APP store. Once it loads tap any of the 5 icons on the bottom of the screen, Featured - Top Charts - Explore - Purchased - Updates, 9 or ten times. The screen will go blank and then reload. This is supposed to clear application cache/temporary file storage. Then at any screen hold the power button down until you see the Slide to Power off screen. Then hold the Home button for about 5 seconds until the Home screen comes back on. This is also supposed to clear temporary files.

    It work for me on my iPhone 6S and iPad Air 2. I also do those steps after I use the Facebook APP to make sure everything is cleared out from that APP.

    It seems to work very good.

    Go through your emails and delete all the photos, images and videos. Those take a lot of space.

    I just delete the emails. All those with photos and videos. I don't save them. I do save photos and videos to the camera roll. Then upload them to Box. But the emails I delete.

    You don't need to worry about RAM. IOS manages RAM very well. It may say it's low, but it'll take care of it. You don't need do a thing.
