As smartphone use grows, so does the amount of data they produce. Whether it’s juggling photos and videos taken during trips, or movies and music to entertain while out, the amount of storage your phone holds is an important factor in how useful it is.
In fact, one of the first recommendations we have for those shopping for a new iPhone is getting the most storage you can afford as most modern smartphones don’t allow internal storage to be expanded easily or at all.
If you’re running out of storage, you can look into options like making use of flash drives with a Lightning port connector (such as the PNY and Leef) connect directly to your iPhone’s data port for access.
Other options include Wi-Fi enabled portable hard drives.
And definitely consider protecting your data through the use of cloud services, including Apple’s iCloud but also 3rd party services like Google Drive or Dropbox.
