Storage Requirements for Upgrading to iOS 13

The good thing is that the new iOS 13 is capable of giving your iPhone a massive storage boost. According to initial reports, this next generation of operating system is capable of freeing up extra spaces on your device. In fact, a whopping 9% in storage savings is expected especially if you are coming from iOS 9.

However, it is important to take note of the iOS 13 system requirements for storage when upgrading to the new iOS 13. This new operating system is expected to take about 4 GB of your iOS device storage space during upgrade.

If you do not have enough storage on iPhone to upgrade to iOS 13, there are 2 options involved: either you buy a new phone or make more space on your existing iPhone. Let us look closely at these options.

Buy a New iPhone 鈥 Worth It?

The new iPhone 7 which comes with the much talked about iOS 13 is expected by September. You can get this device if your old iPhone no longer has enough storage to upgrade to the iOS 13.

However, this may be a costlier option. For example, it is expected that the iPhone 7 will not be any cheaper than any of the past iPhone variants ever released. There is a strong expectation that Apple will improve on one of the most drawbacks of iPhone devices and that is space constraints. In fact, reports suggest that the new iPhone 7 will have a base model of about 32GB which will be an improvement on the past iPhone model. If the base model is 32 GB as speculated, there is a high chance of having other variants with larger storage like 64 GB and 128 GB with a starting price of about $1200.

But, one question remains: will this solve the storage problem forever? It is highly unlikely that this can solve this problem permanently because there can never be enough storage for iPhone users especially with pictures, videos, messages and a lot of apps in the mix and this brings us to the second option.

Make More Storage on Old iPhone 鈥 It's Much Easier!

Instead of buying a new iPhone to solve the problem of storage space, you can use a cheaper option to make more storage on your iPhone. To make this task effective and much easier, you can use a professional iPhone cleaner, like iMyFone Umate Pro or iMyFone Umate Pro for Mac.
