    This article says it should...

    But for my iPad Pro (32GB), it went from 22.9 GB available (10.2.1) to 22.85 GB available (10.3). Not only I didn't gain any storage store, I lost a little. I upgraded it via iTunes.

    What's your result?

    I gained a significant amount on my 7 and definitely gained some on my iPad Air 2. Not as much as my iPhone though.

    I had a little less than 9 GB available on my 64 GB iPad Air 2 and now have a little less than 11 available. So I gained about 2 GB.

    I just finished the update.
    Seems like I gained/cleared about 1-2GB's of storage on my 32GB i7.
    Must have been junk space or other.
    Not complaining :D

    Wow. You got to an extra 2 GB on your Air 2. I haven't applied the update to my Air 2 yet. But I will shortly. Perhaps it's the new Apple file system clearing way for more efficient storage and optimization for both the iPhone as well.

    Thanks BigMcguire!

    Have never had to worry about memory so I did not check before or after.
