Applying a process known as "jailbreaking" to your iPhone can allow you to install third-party applications and operating system extensions that you wouldn't normally be able to install with an iPhone. When you jailbreak your iPhone, you create a new partition on the phone's on-board hard drive that is dedicated to the installation of these third party applications. If you have installed a large number of third-party applications, you may be close to reaching the partition's maximum size, requiring you to increase the overall size of the partition to install more.
