How much memory does timelapse-ing take up?

I'm looking to film a 30hour or so timelapse on an iPhone. How much memory do i have to have free on my phone for it to store it all? Thank you!

Time lapse videos in iOS will be no longer than 40 seconds, regardless of how long you film for. Apple uses a technology known as 'dynamically selected intervals', so your thirty hours (if you get that far) will only result in 40 seconds of footage.

You won't run out of space, but you will eventually run out of battery power.
