    Welcome to the forums. The storage used is usually soldered on the board. The chip itself is pretty hard to come by, as I understand, and swapping it may not be as easy as simply replacing it. I wouldn't be surprised if the phone will be unresponsive if you did manage to swap the chips out.

    I would recommend something like this to copy photos to and delete them from your device.


    Your only other option is to purchase a new device with more internal storage.

    There is a YouTube channel called Strange Parts, he did upgrade the storage on an iPhone. I do not condone or recommend this. It’s a very intensive process with a high chance of failure. It also requires the use of a microscope, heat, liquid solder, patience, and technical proficiency. Your best option is a lightning connected storage device or a new phone. Again, I do not condone or recommended trying to change the memory chip on your phone.

    EDIT: That process would also void your warranty.

    You could upload photos to cloud apps like Box or Dropbox, then delete them from your camera roll.

    Personal recommendation: offload photos, videos, and documents to your computer or the cloud as often as possible, and minimize the space rarely-used apps require in Settings.

    This is a perfect solution to maximize the storage, but when I used Pen-Drive in my iPhone 6, my phone did not work smoothly. I think it was a problem of RAM so i upgraded my phone.

    Some stores that service Apple devices are willing to upgrade storage for a fee. However, this might invalidate your Apple warranty, if you have one. I know some Apple users who have done this once their warranty is over and are very happy with the results.
