Apps are essential in today’s busy world. iPhones are also prone to numerous updates with the release of every new iOS. These take up a lot of space on the devices. Storage is quite minimal on the devices given that they do not come with a slot for a memory card. This means that you cannot download and store data that you like as often as you wish, and if you do, you may have to frequently delete them to create space for more.

This is not a problem that is unique to iPhone users only. Many smartphone users like to connect to WiFi and use a number of applications throughout the day.
