The iOS8 update for iPhone and iPad came out today, and requires a hefty 4.6GB of storage space for the phone. Many people are frantically trying to delete stuff from their phones to make enough room for the massive amount of data the update requires.

Here are people freaking out about what they had to delete:

All text messages.
