Heres how the trick works:
Check how much space you have already released
Open the Settings app on your phone and select General and About.
This will allow you to reduce the amount of data on your device.
The available space will appear halfway up the list - use this number as a marker to follow new spaces.
Go to the iTunes Store
Head to the film section of the app and search for any lengthy movie - the 1963 Cleopatra feature is a good one to select, given its more than five-hour run time or a Lord of the Rings trilogy.
The movie must be greater than the amount of space remaining on your phone.
Press the Rent button twice, keeping in mind that you will not really pay for the movie because you will not have enough space to download it.
Its just that simple
When you try to rent one of these great movies, the iTunes Store will display a notification that you do not have enough storage available to download it.
This should mean that IOS has already released space already.
Go back to your About page - via Settings and General - and you should see a few hundred megabytes of extra space in your available section.
Although it is not clear exactly why this works, it is likely that the Apple operating system will erase the data caches kept in applications.
Apples pre-installed applications often record data such as previews of free songs uploaded to the iTunes Store. These are the data that can be removed by iOS to create additional free storage space.
Rinse and repeat
You can enter and repeat this process as many times as you like, but there is no guarantee of space while you are released each time, otherwise.
Results may vary
It seems that with this trick, the amount of free space created varies greatly for each user and with the latest version of iOS it may not even work at all.
In most cases, this works better for older models of the iPhone and those that have only 16GB of factory space, but also the users of the iPhone 7 have extended their storage.
Weve already reported how downloading a large application could have the same impact on the storage space available on your phone.
And if youre ready to part with some of your downloads, these tips will help you free up huge space on your device.
