Available Storage amounts differ by 1.2GB between iTunes and iOS, is this normal?

    I noticed that the available storage displayed on iTunes is different than the amount displayed in the Settings app in iOS. iTunes says I have 28.54GB free while my iPhone says I have 27.3GB.

    Has anyone else encountered this? If so, how much is your difference?

    Thanks for any feedback!

    My difference is a whopping 4GB, while iTunes one is larger.
    So I just trust on device storage report rather than iTunes ones.

    iTunes is wrong. It doesn't understand iCloud caching.

    This becomes normal if you buy apps, music or movie from more than one store.
    Apps, music or movie you buy from one store will not be counted as "used space" when syncing with iTunes if you don't log into that one store currently.

    It's been different for me since the release of iOS 8.3 in April 2015. Apple Support offered troubleshooting methods but require a Mac and I have a PC.
