    Hello,

    I have an iPhone 5, 32gb, that contains just over 10gb of "other." I actually had this problem with my iPhone 3GS before I upgraded, and thought it might disappear on it's own once I upgraded. Unfortunately that wasn't the case.

    Here's what I've tried:

    *Restore from backup
    * Uncheck music & sync to delete music (the "other" stays the same)
    * Settings>General>Usage>Music, swipe right on Music, then delete

    Any advice on how I can reclaim my space?

    Thanks in advance,

    -Feller

    I've heard people say that the only way is to set up device as new.

    I think my "other" is starting to creep too...

    Thanks.

    I was trying to avoid a total wipe, but guess that's the next step. Thanks for your response. :)

    May do some more digging on that one if you are trying to avoid it. I've never had to do (or done) it -- I'm just going off of what I've read on the forums
