iOS 9

iOS 9's 'App Thinning' will effectively increase your iPhone's storage capacity

App thinning will shrink app sizes in iOS 9.

It has long been a frustration of iPhone owners, especially those of 8GB and 16GB models, to see a sizable chunk of their device's storage devoted to the operating system. Thanks to a new technology known as "App Thinning" that will be introduced with iOS 9, this will no longer be the case. As noted in this week's WWDC Keynote, the technology was used to pare down the iOS 9 OTA update from 4.6GB to 1.3GB, a 71% size reduction.
