Trick your iPhone into freeing up storage space, it works 100%
Thanks to my good friend eavesdropping you, we’ve found out that there’s a trick to get more storage space on your iPhone. The only thing is that you have to have less than a gig (1GB) of available space left on your phone to make it work.
Ill tell you what he said directly..
“Not sure if this is well-known, might be but definitely some people don’t know it.
I have an iPhone with 16 Gb so I’m always dealing with low storage. A trick I do to get back some storage is to try to “rent” a movie with a big file size (something like Lord Of The Ring: two towers).
Just go to iTunes and search for the movie (with a bigger file size than what you have left on storage), click rent and soon you’ll get the message saying you don’t have enough storage and offers you to go to settings. Click that and magically you will get some storage back (probably it erases some useless data from different apps to try to download the movie).
Repeat the process 4-5 times and before you know it you recovered 1 to almost 2 Gb.
So this just has me thinking, why isn’t this a built in feature on the iPhones? What is apple trying to do? Is it a security issue?
I guess we just have to wait for a while until Apple decides to give it’s input, who knows, maybe this feature or exploit will be addressed in the next iOS update, but I think its a pretty good find, I’ve heard people freeing up to 5GB of extra storage after their phone had been declared full. So you guys have fun with this until we find the next one.
