You'll need BGA chip rework skills and special hardware/software tools to edit low-level data of the flash memory chip so the phone can accept the new chip. It's not as easy as an SD card swap for Android phones.

Yeap, this is a company in china that can do this for $70 - $90 dollars. They basically work with the motherboard chips. It's not easy, you will need special tools (1k +), and adjust to the learning curve. This company could do the job in 1 hour for like 70 devices.

Unfortunately, there are no Apple products designed to have expandable memory. What you can do is connect your phone to the iCloud for extra space and automatic back up. Depending on how much space you need, you can purchase extra.

No matter what, it is safer to use this option in case your phone ever calls it quits. You then at that point can use iTunes to download whatever you backed up.

Portable memory without wire,

a case with expandable memory,

Hey Royer Adames,

Sadly, you can't increase your memory.

Normal repair people cannot, because they need a microscope (and other 1k + tools) and soldering skills.


True haha, I'm not that good.
