    Theoretically? Sure.

    Practically? No way.

    I don't mind paying for the service. Who does it?

    I can't sell it I got it from ATT as a way to reduce my ATT Business bill from 300 to 100 a month. They won't give me a free hi memory one. My personal is an XS Max. This is my second business line ringing the 6S.

    No idea.

    But that would be what is required. The memory chip would have to be desoldered and a new one resoldered on.

    I imagine there are plenty of people in China who do it, but I have no clue.

    There is no "business" I am aware of in the US that does this. You'd have to find someone willing and capable.

    Lastly, understand that doing this will void any warranty and any Applecare you may have. It will also void any carrier insurance you carry.

    I've seen videos where they swap out the storage memory on iPhones in China. Looked pretty easy with the right machines. Personally, I wouldn't trust it.

    Not worth it and you'll likely be unhappy. All they really do is store photos and documents. You have to use an app to get at those files. It's not an integrated solution.

    You're better off swapping it for a new one with more memory. If it's a work phone, that complicates things. Maybe pay (or better yet, have your company pay for iCloud storage) and offload data to the cloud.
