    Hello and welcome to iMore! You a can choose to keep your texts/messages for forever, for 1 year or for 30 days. To choose which one, go to Settings>Messages, then scroll down to Message History and tap on Keep Messages and then select which option you prefer. Another thing to think about is to delete attachments, like photos or graphics. They take up a lot of space.

    Text messages have to be deleted individually. Just delete the images. Photos, videos, etc. That's what takes so much space. Tap the i in the upper right corner, then scroll down to the images. Press for delete. Check any apps you don't use much, and delete them. You can download them back later. Delete cache in apps that have that option. Others you can delete, then download back, and that deletes the cache. Delete emails that contain images. Check everywhere, like in "sent", for example. Make any music you have downloaded back to in the cloud. Local music takes a lot of space.
