Apple 1 Computer Sold For $365,000 At AuctionIf you’re an iPhone owner, one of the biggest headaches you’ve had to endure is the constant process of having to delete apps to free up enough room on your phone to enable a new iOS update.

But now, Apple looks to make that headache disappear.

At their Worldwide Developers Conference on Monday, the company announced the latest version of their software, iOS 9.

To alleviate the burdens of those who will update to it on their iPhones and iPads, iOS 9 will only require 1.3 GB of storage space on their devices.

This is a significant drop from the staggering 4.6 GB that iOS 8 required when it was released last year.

The huge amount of storage that was needed led to one of the slowest software rollouts that the company has had in recent times.

The news comes at a moment where more people are using their iPhones and iPads to store copious amounts of music, photos and videos, a fact that hasn’t gone unnoticed by Apple and third-party companies.
