Are your dog and cat photos killing your iPhone?
If you are a dog and/or cat owner, your iPhone Camera Roll is probably filled with photos of them, and you are running out of storage. I am very guilty. I recently did an app clean-up and left with 5 Apps for Dog Owners. Now, I’m in the process of cleaning-up my camera roll which is filled with Sugar’s photos. I’m also guilty that I have cat photos. (Sugar’s Chicago cat pals Maynard & Winston). I’ve exceeded my cloud storage space, and I pay Apple a monthly fee for extra storage space. It’s silly, but I’m a crazy dog owner that loves taking photos and videos of Sugar via my iPhone.

A Pet Video a Day Eats the Storage Away – 2 pet videos per week at 11 seconds each equates to 1.14 GB per year
MiMedia, a service that helps us organize our digital mess, recently conducted a nationwide study looking at digital media trends around dogs and cats. From the 1000 participants:
40% of both cat and dog owners have run out of storage on smartphones
Cat owners use double the digital storage space of dog owners on pet photos
Here’s an additional result of the survey.
Cat owners take an average of 4-5 photos of their pet per day, which takes up 3.03 GB per year
Dog owners take an average of 2 photos of their pet per day, which takes up 1.21 GB per year
Only 7% of cat owners take more than 2 videos of their pet per week
30% of cat videos are over 11 seconds
10% of Dog owners take more than 2 videos of their pet per week
40% of dog videos are over 11 seconds
42% of all dog and cat videos/pictures that are taken are shared; 70% of pet photos are shared via text message
To all cat owners, do you agree your cat photos are killing your iPhone?
