    Hello,

    I have bought the iPhone 6 16GB version 1 week ago and I put all the music I love and 2 HD movies and now the 16 GB memory is almost full.

    I am assuming there is some phone hacks to increase storage?

    Can iphone jailbreak increase storage?

    How to have more iphone storage? I want to add more storage to the iOS device cause I need 10 GB more for photos and music.

    Thank you in advance

    While is not fair for the end user to pay more for an iOS device with the same specs but only bigger storage, Apple is gambling on that to make more profit and there is no method to increase the physical storage unless you change the HDD.

    However, there is no need to buy a new device for you to increase iphone storage. You can simply use iCloud, Dropbox, Skydrive, Google Drive and many other cloud services that are offering you the GB you need.

    All this list is useless if he has no internet connection. If you need something physical, you can use the famous Media Hubs. They are very easy to use but might drain the iPhone battery very fast.

    Jailbreaking can not increase memory or affect any hardware spec. J breaking your iphone will only grant you certain permissions on customization and the app store.

    If you are still looking on how to have more iPhone storage, you can try to compress the music and video files. It is a nice trick that I am using with my Lumia.

    You can either get a free app, or do it online.

    Simply Google "online mp3 compress" and you will see plenty of results.

    Same goes for the videos.

    As highlighted above, Media Hubs are an excellent choice.

    Found a video on CNET about them:

    I noticed that the use of cloud storage was mentioned, like I have mentioned on other threads around the forum.

    And it got shot down with the same reaction, "cloud storage is useless if you have no internet"...

    Now, while this is true, I'm wondering who in their right mind, would buy a top of the range smartphone, but not be able to afford a contract with a data package?

    Just a thought...

    Thanks for that I have never heard of Media Hubs. I do have Dropbox...but I think I may need something else! Awesome tip!

    That CNET video is gold! Thanks for sharing it. I was having trouble with the memory on my phone as well. This is perfect!
