Question for the Techies - App Permissions

Before I download apps to my phone I always read the permissions. One puzzles me - Storage: Modify or delete the contents of your USB storage.

Why would an app do this and has an app deleted information before? That seems strange to me.

Also I've seen others where it says that it can read texts etc...

It means data for the app itself can be saved and deleted to your phone storage.

When apps update, they usually remove some of the old version before adding the new version (if they didn't it would eat up your whole memory really quickly), at least that's my understanding.

That makes sense, thank you
