Diagnostics and Usage Data

To delete this, simply sync your phone to iTunes and it will automatically transfer it over and delete it.

Remove Downloaded Temp files. Downloaded Temporary files are created by apps or website as they operate, but afterward, they aren't needed. They are temporary because they can be installed and accessed any time, so they don't need to be there (i.e. the app will put them in as it needs them).

So if they don't need to be there, get rid of them! Here's how: simply uninstall the apps and reinstall them on your iTunes. If you don't want to go through all of that, CleanMyPhone does it for you in seconds.
