This iTunes Trick Will Automagically Free Up iPhone Storage

All you need to do is rent a movie??

If that point is RIGHT NOW, there's a sneaky little trick that will help you get back some storage.

First, check your storage. You need to have mere *megabytes* of space left for this to work.

This is because you'll need to rent a movie with a file that's bigger than the space you have left, so it prompts you to delete some content.

To check your storage, go to Settings > General > Storage & iCloud.


Next, open iTunes and try to rent a super-long movie in HD (to make sure the file's as big as possible). Then, when the pop-up appears, press Settings.

Some suggestions: Pearl Harbor, The Lord of the Rings, Pirates of the Carribbean: At World's End, and Watchmen. More super-long movies here!
