The longer you use the iPhone, the more iOS contents pile up on your iPhone. This makes your iPhone work slowly, and can't spare more free space to store favorite photos, videos, and run interesting games and apps. At this moment, you may need to free up space of iPhone.

To free up space on iphone, you may backup iPhone to computer but if so you may lose the backups because of hardware failure, computer crashes or other reasons. Further more, you may backup iPhone via iTunes or iCloud, and then delete the data to free up space of iPhone. However, backing up iPhone via iTunes or iCloud means you never can get access to backups you made unless you plan to restore your iDevice.
