Hello, i had the same problem back a couple of years ago with one of my old tablets, so what i had to do was to change the storage for apps from the internal storge(tablet) to external storage(microSD). It might gonna work for you as well.

Whether an app can be moved to the SD card depends on how the apps are compiled. There's a number of reasons for this.

whether an App can be moved to an SD card is determined my the App developer, not the phone manufacturer. If you go to Settings, then Apps. Click on an App and then select storage. You will then be able to see whether the App can be moved from Internal to SD Card. You may find that if an App you gave moved to the SD Card gets an update, the update may well go back onto your internal storage. As I said, it is the App developer that is doing this. Hope this helps.

I know that some apps can't be moved due yo the app developer but every app I have can't be moved to SD card and that's a lot of apps lol Noe either I've been unlucky with my choice of apps or something isn't right

You could always try writing to the app developers to ask them to make their apps install on and work from external storage.
