How do I Get Rid of "Other" Category on iPhone/iPad/iPod touch?

Trying to sync to iTunes, we keep getting the warning message "iPhone/iPad/iPod touch can't be synced because there is not enough space to hold all of the items in the iTunes Library (additional space required)." Checking the "Capacity" bar, we realize a yellow bar titled "Other" eats up a large sum of storage space in iTunes. Honestly speaking, no way is available to directly delete "Other" data in iTunes until now. But fortunately, you can first feel free to remove "Other" data in iPhone, iPad, iPod with Tenorshare iCareFone(iPhone Care Pro), a professional iOS cleaning tool that can easily remove "Other" data for iPhone, iPad and iPod.
