You can upgrade your 16GB iPhone to massive 128GB in just $60
Tip: If you are low on storage then this video is definitely for you
Despite taken huge strides in its mobile operating system, Apple has prevented the storage on its iPhone to be expandable through a microSD card. This has caused a lot of problems for consumers, but profitable for Apple as it rakes in huge revenue for the company. This is because Apple generally charges a $100 premium if you want to upgrade the storage of your iPhone by choosing another model.
However, in just 30 minutes, this video shows how easy it is to increase the storage of your smartphone from 16GB to 128GB and best of all, it only cost the gut $60 to make it all happen. China’s Shenzhen market is where all the magic takes place, but in order for you to increase your storage, you will need to have a fair amount of trust when you give your iPhone to be upgraded. This is because your smartphone is going to be torn down and by removing the memory chips inside and replacing them with high capacity ones, you will be able to carry around all of your media for the foreseeable future.
Keep in mind that while this will effectively increase your storage from 16GB to 128GB, it will void your warranty. However, if your iPhone’s warranty period is already over, you should give this a try at your own risk. The engineers replaced the existing memory chip, which belongs to SK Hynix and replaced them with a Toshiba flash memory, and as stated earlier, the entire process took just 30 minutes. After a couple of intricate steps, it should also be noted that the data was not wiped clean and was present inside the phone just the he left it.
So at the end of the day, if you want to have a completely upgraded iPhone in a much smaller price tag, you will be doing it at your own risk, not to mention that you will be voiding the warranty of your iPhone.
