    12.9 v2 running 11.2.6, apparently I’ve missed an update.

    I started getting a message I was running out last week. I checked, I wasn’t - I just figured it was because it was at around 75%. I had 120gb or so free.

    I just tried to download Civilization, and it says it can’t because there isn’t enough room. What the heck? I’m at 126gb free today.

    Not sure where to turn for this one...

    I’m also having times it doesn’t respond to the keyboard, but will if I pick up the Pencil. Apple store here I come.

    Well I updated and it’s downloading now. Here is hoping the message stays away.

    How big is Civilization?

    iOS needs some RAM to run smoothly.

    I’m not sure but I guess Apple is experimenting a new way to manage system storage. Currently on Apple Watch series 3, I can store up to 8GB of music, despite having 12GB free. Would iPad also imply such hidden storage limits? I have no idea.

    Settings/General/iPad Storage is useful for listing memory used by various apps, if you run short again

    I had a strange storage issue on my iPad. It said the system was taking over 100GB. I backed up, wiped it and reinstalled iOS. Works much better now.

    It's a question and NOT an answer.

    When you throw photos into garbage, does the storage capacity change immediately OR only after you've removed those same photos from the recently deleted album? I suspect the question is rhetorical and the answer is "only after you've removed those same photos from the recently deleted album."

    I had an issue recently where Settings, General, About showed a different amount free than the Download tab in iCatcher. I don’t know why I had this, but the Settings app was wrong and iCatcher was actually correct. Settings was out by around 100GB. I suspect that there is an iOS bug causing this. I suspect that it wasn’t updating either after podcasts had downloaded to iCatcher or Plex had sync’d. My issue has gone and I am on the latest iOS version now.
