It seems you can upgrade your 16GB iPhone to 128GB for just $90 in China


For those of you that still debate why Apple will sell you a 16GB iPhone in this day and age, it’s only fair to assume that it has to do with pushing users to spare some extra cash for the 64GB model. 16GB of storage has become simply insufficient for any smartphone, no matter how much any of you can depend on cloud storage. The biggest challenge is that there’s no such thing as expandable storage on an iPhone, or at least there wasn’t.

A China repair store site has reportedly found a way to upgrading the storage of any iPhone with a few tricks. Obviously your iPhone will be disasembled for this to work, and the store apparently uses heating in order to remove the existing NAND flash chip on the iPhone for a 64GB or 128GB module. These will cost you $70 and $90 respectively, and it seems that all this procedure takes just an hour to be accomplished. What’s even more interesting is that this company has apparently also found a way to tricking iOS to accepting these new chips, making it probable that you might not even need a Jailbreak for this to work. This procedure also works on iPads if you’re also interested.

Those of you interested could give your respective leap of faith in the source link bellow. Just keep in mind this is something never before seen, and as such, we don’t know if Apple could simply patch it with a future update and brick your phone.
