The “Offload Unused Apps” feature on an iOS device is a way to automatically remove apps that you don’t use very often in order to free up space on your device. When this feature is enabled, your iOS device will periodically check which apps you use and which ones you don’t, and it will remove the ones that you haven’t used in a while.

However, the data and documents associated with the offloaded app will be preserved, so you can still access them if you reinstall the app from the App Store. This means that you won’t lose any of your progress or important information when an app is offloaded.

This feature is useful if you have a lot of apps installed on your device and you want to make sure that you have enough free space available. It’s also a convenient way to keep your home screen organized and remove apps that you no longer need.

Note: This feature is only available on iOS 11 and later. If you are using an older version of iOS, you will not have this option.
