The answer to all your phone storage issues without paying more …

If you’re an iPhone user, you are no stranger to the ’No storage space’ notification popping up at every given moment. Well thanks to the hack Gods, a new trick has been found that gives you hundreds of megabytes of space without deleting anything!

All you have to do is try to rent a film in the Apple iTunes store that requires more space than is available on your phone. Your device will then free up an incredible amount of storage by clearing saved caches in Apple apps.
