iPhone 6 Plus Won't Switch On Due To Over Storage

Hi guys. Photos on my iPhone 6 Plus has been disappearing and reappearing and the phone keeps switching off and back on by itself. I found out online that the cause is that my phone is out of storage. Which is true because I had too many photos. So I deleted many. But then I took some more and my photos started disappearing and reappearing again. I deleted a few more pics and a few apps so I had about 400mb of storage left. I also turned off auto update so it won't take up more storage again because I had that experience of storage going up on it's own before. But then it got worse. I checked the storage again and all of a sudden it said I had no storage left! Zero MB! The phone turned off by itself. Usually when it does that I can switch it back on, but this time it only gets up to the apple logo but it never turn on until the home screen is loaded. I was going to delete more apps but I'm not able to anymore. What else can I do? I'll also contact Apple tomorrow if it still won't switches on. Hope you guys can help. Thank you.

If you have a previous backup of the phone try setting it up as a new phone with Itunes. If you have not already try a hard reset by holding down the power and home button till the apple logo appears. If you get it turned back on go into settings and see what takes up the most storage, often it can be save imessages that take up a lot of room, or snapchat memories.


and what if you don't have a previous backup? i have the same problem.


you have posted this question in July so i guess you must've been done something till now. Please tell me how did your problem get solved?

Hopefully you took the opportunity to do a good backup while the phone was somewhat working. I had an iPhone 6 with a similar problem and it turned out to be a corrupted NAND IC. I had to remove it (de-solder) and reset it with a special machine in order to repair the phone. The data was lost forever though.
