It's no longer a new problem for all cell phone users that the internal memory is quite easy to become full after using for a long time. iPhone or Android users may all have to remove or delete some data so to free up storage space on their phones.

If you are having a similar problem, don't worry. Just follow below methods to extend iPhone storage space right here now:

Method 1. Extract iOS data/media files to expand iPhone internal memory

As we all know that iPhone doesn't have SD card slot, which means that all iPhone, iPad and iPod users cannot directly expand their iDevice storage space by adding or inserting an extra SD card as what most Android users usually do.

The only way is to move saved data in iPhone or iPad so to free up memory. Here in this part, we'd love to recommend you try a professional iOS data extractor tool - EaseUS MobiSave which allows you safely transfer, extract iOS data and even restore lost files from iPhone to other storage devices such as PC or USB/external hard drive.
Only 3 steps will do:
