iPhone Tutorial: How to Free Up System Disk Space

iPhone is the first revolutionary mobile phone developed by Apple. This new Smartphone is considered to be the best mobile phone in the market today that allows you to do everything you do on your notebook or desktop computer. One of the best feature about this iPhone is that it uses the concept of touch screen i.e. iPhone is operated with the help of your fingers and that makes it super cool phone, among several other smart phones.
Since, this is the first time for the Apple Company to introduce the iPhone, they have not been able to make this iPhone up to the customer’s satisfaction but there is no need to worry as several programmers are working to give a name to this iPhone and I will be helping the end users to make their iPhone a complete Smartphone.

Since, Apple iPhone is a smart mobile phone so it uses an operating system to run the same. It uses Symbian operating system and has around 300MB of total disk space available for system operations. Basically, this space is meant for operating system contents like various applications that you might want to install in order to enhance your iPhone but unfortunately you might have only few MBs left probably 30-40 MB only.

There is no need to worry about it, since, I am going to teach you a way by which you can increase this system disk space and free yourself from all worries until you install hundreds of applications on it.

NOTE: Please make sure that you do have ‘installer’ application installed on your iPhone. If you have performed jailbreak on your iPhone that you would probably have ‘installer’ application installed on your iPhone. Without the ‘installer application’ you will not be able to perform tweaks or install third party application on your iPhone.

I assume that you have the installer application installed on your iPhone, so, here is the step by step guide to free system disk space of your Apple iPhone.

Step 1: Switch on your Wi-Fi by going to Settings and then tap the Wi-Fi option. Switch on the Wi-Fi and select the desired network after available networks have been found. Now, go to installer icon by tapping it.

Step 2: Tap the install icon located below and from the categories, select ‘Utilities’. From the utilities window, select ‘BossTool’ and finally press the ‘Install’ button located on the top right corner to install the application.

Now, the application will install itself on the iPhone and after the application has been successfully installed, it will return to the categories of the installer application.

Step 3: Press the ‘HOME’ button of your iPhone, the one located on the lower center of the iPhone. Now, the springboard will reboot itself and then after a few seconds you will notice the BossTool installed on your iPhone.

Step 4: Tap the ‘BossTool’ to open the ‘BossTool’ application window. The first time it will ask you to donate but you can select ‘Donate later’ to skip the donation process. Tap the ‘Free Disk Space’ option to open the sub options.

Step 5: From there tap the ‘Relocate Fonts’ option to move the fonts from the system disk space to the 2nd partition that is meant to store programs other than system programs. Press the ‘Do it’ button to initiate the process. Once the process is successfully completed, it will return you to the BossTool options. Now, it will show ‘Fonts Already Moved’.

Now, you will notice that the free space has increased by about 80-90 MB as compared to earlier which could be anything depending on the number of applications on your iPhone. On my iPhone, the initial free space was 30 MB and thereafter it increased to 117 MB.

If you want to free more system space, then you can choose the other 2 options i.e. Relocate ringtones amp; Relocate Applications but my advice is not to choose those 2 options unless and until you are really very low on system space.
