Amusingly, it does that on some Windows 10 PCs I've seen too. We're talking about fresh installs as well as ones that have been up for a while. Suddenly you're logged out or you lost the connection to the server, etc.It is really inconvenient to use on iOS in my opinion. I mainly use cloud storage for photos and OneDrive's handling of that, at least last year when I was still using it, was horrible.
Also the app kept logging me out all the time...
Anyone ever try clearing space on their phones using this method? http://mashable.com/2016/03/31/free-iphone-storage-space/#OU8836SNigqd
Heads up, looks like they changed rentals to streaming so this isn't an option anymore. Just tried to "rent" The Two Towers, and instead of it cleaning all my apps, it authorized the rental and asked me if I wanted to watch the movie. Its weird because I don't have a form of payment saved into iTunes/iCloud, so not sure what it would've charged the $3.99 to, but will be on the look out for the charge just in case.I haven't done it personally but many report success in r/iPhone
Good to know.Heads up, looks like they changed rentals to streaming so this isn't an option anymore.

Depends if the partial uninstall includes the app cache or not.Good to know.
In iOS 11, there's a optional feature that'll partially uninstall infrequently used apps until you tap the icon for the app on the home screen. https://www.cultofmac.com/485432/ios-11-can-automatically-offload-apps-dont-use/
User data associated with the app would remain on the device so you would hopefully be able to pickup where you left off.
This may help out when space is tight.
Just break down and buy a new 128 GB SE.Screen acting up again, debating whether I want to order a $30 screen replacement kit off Amazon for Monday delivery or pick up a 128GB SE from the Apple Store tomorrow. Was leaning towards the former option, even placed the order, but now I'm having second thoughts. Already cancelled it just in case I don't run into problems like last time. I'm now telling myself that I should just get the new phone tomorrow and I've had funds earmarked for the occasion for the last few months (ever since this one started acting up).
But.... as I was typing this and testing my fianc?e, all symptoms of the problem went away, so I'm now telling myself that I can live with the phone as is for a little bit longer. But as Murphy dictates, if I do this, the phone will shit out on me right when I actually need it most and won't have my work phone on me for backup.
To remind everyone, its an almost 4 year old (purchased Oct 2013) 64GB 5s with 500MB free space with a 5 months old aftermarket screen that already has stress cracks in a few place (all stemming from the speaker and home button cutouts, not caused by drops) and an aftermarket battery that always shows 100% regardless of true charge state. It shuts down on me constantly because the battery is discharged and I don't actually realize that with the battery meter working as it does, and now the bottom right corner of the screen has an occasional dead zone due to the screen starting to peel away from the digitize between 2 of the stress cracks. For $30 I can get a new screen off Amazon that has mostly positive reviews, but some people complaining about the same stress cracks I'm seeing on my replacement screen and faded colors, and for another $20 I can get a battery from iFixIt that supposedly will fix the charge state issue, but is it really worth it at this point? By how much will this $50 investment increase the life of the phone? Another 6 months? A year tops?
