    Hi guys,

    I intend to buy a 16GB iPhone 5 as I've gotten rid of my 4S to fund it. Now I have a back-up of about 13.7GB to restore to, and was wondering how much of the space on a brand new iPhone 16GB with iOS is usable (not taken up by the OS).

    If, for instance, I do exceed the amount, will iTunes ask/allow me to remove individual things when backing up to make room, or will it just deny me the restore?

    Cheers for any help in advance ^_^

    We won't know till the device is out, mostly because the OS will most certainly have new features which could take up more space than the OS does on the current iPhone.
