Whether it’s a new game or app that all of your friends are playing, or an episode of your favorite TV show, you need to have a minimum amount of storage space available on your device. Your iPhone will let you know if you are attempting to download or install something for which you do not have enough room, but you can check this yourself before you reach that point.
