How To Increase Storage Space On Your iPhone Without Deleting Any Apps

This is magical.

Rejoice everyone! The Internet has found a way to give us all more storage space on our iPhones without having to delete any apps or photos.

Yes, that's right, this is a somewhat magical trick unveiled by Reddit user, eavesdroppingyou.

Writing on Reddit, he states: "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)."

Ok, ok, you had us at "low storage."

Here's how the trick works.

1. Head to iTunes

iTunes Store app

2. Try to buy a film that occupies more space than your available storage. We tried downloading 'Lord of The Rings.'

If it doesn't work the first time around, it does take quite a few attempts before the trick will increase your storage capacity.

However, when it does happen it's the closest you'll probably come to experiencing a Disney ending.
