Here’s a simple trick to freeing up space on your iPhone without having to delete anything!

How to free up space on your iPhone without deleting anything

  • First load up iTunes on your iPhone, then look for a movie, so far any movie works as long as the space requirements are larger than the free space you have left on your device.
  • Tap the “Rent” button, don’t worry you wont be charged since the attempt to “rent” will fail because you don’t have enough free space.
  • Then when the “Cannot Download” message comes up telling you that you don’t have enough free space, wait for a few secs and then tap on “Settings”.
  • Then go to storage and you will see that you have now more free space than before! It really works!

We earlier thought this was another April Fools joke (see the date of posting), but we thought wrong. This trick is indeed legit. I opened up my old iPhone 4s which had about 478mb of free space left and after performing the trick, my free space is now 1.2gb!

And when we checked the phone everything was still there, nothing was deleted (photos, videos, music, apps etc). Just more free space that seem to magically appear out of nowhere WTF!

Sources say the free space you “magically” that the trick forces the iOS to clear cache, deletes unneeded app files stored in the Caches and tmp directories. Apple has yet to comment on this.
