Our iPhone (32GB) has full storage. ~16GB Apps, ~7GB Systems, ~7GB 'other', ~1GB photos/messages, ~1GB free.

Not much I can do about Systems or Other (or can I?) but the App storage count has me confused: in part because when I add up all the listed apps the total only comes out to ~8GB (including 4GB for Safari data/files).

Any idea why 'Apps' is taking up twice as much space as expected or what I can do about it?
