Are there any ways to easily add storage to your iPhone or iPad? Of course yes. Here this article will show you how to do this in three ways.

Solution 1: Using Cloud Service to Increase iPhone/iPad Memory Capacity

If the storage runs up on your iPhone itself, why not to choose the Cloud service? You can use DropBox, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, Apple iCloud, Amazon Cloud Drive and etc to manage your files on iOS devices. Here we take Amazon Cloud Drive application for example. 


  1. Download & install this app on your computer.

  2. Log into your Amazon account.

  3. Upload your photos, videos, music or documents from iPhone.

  4. Delete the original files on your device.

Solution 2: Using Flash Drive to Expand Memory on iPhone/iPad

When you buy an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, the device comes with a storage capacity ranging from 16 to 256 GB for iPhone and iPad, 8 to 128 GB for iPod Touch. So your iPhone capacity is limited by the phone you buy and you're not allowed to add a memory card. It doesn't mean you can not use external storage option and here is how it works.


For example, SanDisk's iXpand is one of the most popular choices among iPhone users. You can simply plug in the lightning connector to your device and then get photos, videos or other files off your iPhone to this drive. If you do not want anything sticking out of your iPhone, you can also choose a wireless hard drive, like Western Digital MyPassport Wireless.

In fact, the files you delete with the built-in deletion are still stored in your iPhone. Although they are invisible to us, they actually take up your iPhone space. Similarly, the pixels of a photo or video make for a better viewing experience may also cause your iPhone to go over storage capacity. 


So the best way is to erase the deleted files permanently and compress the photos from your iOS devices. Then you will release and get more memory storage after that. Here Yolisoft iPhone Eraser is an all-in-one tool, which not only can erase your iPhone selectively, but also compress your iPhone data, to free up and add memory to your iPhone.
