1. Go to Settings, click General, and press About. 

Then, glance down to Available storage and check how much space you have left. If you've got anything less that 5 GB then this trick might be the one for you.

2. Go into your iTunes store app and make your way to the movies section. 

Trust us, there's a point to this.

3. Find a really huge movie.

Importantly, one that is bigger than how much available space you have left on your phone. Think Lord of the Rings big. Oh, and don't worry, you wont' *actually* be buying it.

4. Tap the Rent button two times. 

A notification will pop up saying you can't download it, and you'll then be prompted to either press OK or Settings.

5. Click Settings.

The moment of truth has arrived.

6. Now, head back to General, About, and check the amount of storage you have.

If everything's gone as planned you should now have a higher amount of storage available than you did before.
