New iPad 4 always shows Storage Full
Hi.. I got a new iPad 4 2nd generation last month. I have around 19GB of free space. But every now and then, the iPad keeps on showing, YOUR STORAGE IS FULL and the Available shows 0.
While the original available is 19GB as you see in this screenshot.
Then again gets to normal 19GB after few hours.
I dont understand this damn activity of the iPad , showing 0 and then getting to 19 and then again 0 , etc .
What could it be ?

Sounds like a software bug.
GSM Unlocked Moto X 16gb (Android 4.4.3)
ATT Nokia Lumia 520 8gb (Windows Phone 8)
Slate iPod Touch 5th Generation 32gb (iOS 6.1.2)
Slate iPad Mini 16gb (iOS 7.1.1)

Where are you checking the available storage: on the iPad using the Settings app or in iTunes while doing a sync? I've noticed that during a sync the space sometimes drops but then returns upon completion.
Regardless of the answer, a backup and restore seems like a good idea.

Is your iCloud storage full? I can't remember the message that displays.
13" MacBook Air Mid-2012: 1.8 GHz i5, 4 GB RAM, 128 GB SSD
Mac Mini Late-2012: 2.3 GHz i7, 16 GB RAM, 1 TB HD
iPhone 5, black: 32 GB
iPad Mini Retina, white: 16 GB

As for your storage issue. It's likely one of two possibles
1. It's talking about iCloud which is full cause you have over 5 GB of stuff in need of backing up
2. Some app is caching files and not dumping them properly. There are many possible contenders. Generally powering off your iPad, wait about 5 minutes and Power it back on works. If not, try rebooting by making sure you are not plugged into computer then holding both the power and home buttons until the screen goes back and the apple logo comes up and then let go of both right away
Next time the error comes up take a screenshot of the message. That will likely tell us which option it is
