This Simple iPhone Trick Makes More Space For All Your Failed Selfie Attempts
All the storage for all the selfies.
If you're anything like me, you've had toddler-level meltdowns over iPhone's "low storage" alert
Seriously, why does it have to be every time I'm about to take the perfect #MOTD selfie???
So thank you reddit user eavesdroppingyou (🙌🏻 🙌) for sharing this storage-saving trick.
Here's how First, check in on your storage usage. For this trick to work, you can only have a few megabytes of space left.
Then, head on over to the iTunes store and find yourself a movie to "Rent" (bonus points if it's more than 2.5 hours long). Don't worry, you won't actually rent the movie, even after tapping "Rent HD Movie."
Some great examples include: any LOTR movie, "Saving Private Ryan" or "Avatar."
After a few seconds of thinking, you'll get this error message. So tap on over to "Settings" and see what's up....
MAGIC STORAGE AVAILABILITY, that's what's up. On my first try, I freed up an entire gigabyte.
Apparently repeating this trick will free up even more storage, but I could only get it to work once. No one really knows what it deletes, but it's most likely useless app data, so you're in the clear.
Happy selfie-ing, everyone!
