Out of space again? This iPhone storage hack is your EVERYTHING


Remember that time you missed an AMAZING photo opp because your iPhone had finally hit its storage quota and you were forced to commit that cute dog to memory rather than your mobile?

Well, thanks to a new hack offered by Reddit user, eavesdroppingyou, those days may soon be a thing of the past!

Whether your phone is chock-full of selfies or bursting with screenshots of your BFF's argument with her fella, this amazing storage hack will have you sorted in no time.

In words which were like music to our ears, eavesdroppingyou wrote: "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 LOTR: 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."

And now for the best bit.

"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)," they continue. "Repeat the process 4-5 times and before you know it you recovered 1 to almost 2 Gb."

Not convinced? According to Reddit users it really works, with one writing: "That's actually clever. I just went from 800 MB to 4.9 GB free space."

Ladies, we're prepared for anything now.
