With the Roomba Combo j9+ robot vacuum and mop, you can cross two chores off your list. This robot tackles big messes with powerful vacuuming and deep-scrub mopping – and unlike other 2-in-1 robots, it has an auto-retracting mop pad that lifts itself to the top of the robot when on carpet or rugs, preventing wet messes.

It also automatically empties debris and replenishes the robot with liquid. With Dirt Detective and SmartScrub, the Roomba Combo j9+ will prioritize the dirtiest rooms in the home first based on insights from cleaning history, while adding a back-and-forth scrubbing action on hard surfaces where it's needed most. This innovative robot vacuum and mop combo takes the hassle out of cleaning with its powerful suction and deep-scrubbing capabilities.

Quick Tips for Freeing Up Device Storage

  1. Check Device Settings: Scan your device settings to identify storage-hogging apps or features. Default settings can drain battery and internal storage, so adjust as needed.

  2. Optimize Charging Speed: Disable default power settings to speed up iPhone charging. Navigate to settings for faster recharging.

  3. Manage Camera Roll: Clear out excess photos and videos to free up storage. Delete duplicates, old screenshots, and blurry images. While sentimental, it's essential for maximizing storage space.

  4. Expand Storage: Consider purchasing additional storage for Apple and Android devices if space remains insufficient despite cleanup efforts.
