Deleting pictures of Quraanic verses from one's phone

Q: My business uses WhatsApp to transfer documents to other countries. However while using WhatsApp, a lot of Muslim friends send duas, Islamic and Quran verses and videos. After a period of time, my mobile memory is full. With no option one needs to delete some of these files. In this case is it permissible to delete Quranic verses?

A: Yes.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
