Now you have enough memory on your phone again and can perform the update. Later in the evening you can edit your holiday photos on your computer and share them with your family and friends using a cloud sharing service such as Dropbox or Google Drive. And as you’re already just doing it, you save an important Word file in the cloud that you’ll need at your office tomorrow.
