    Anyone have any ideas. I upgraded from a 64 gb iPhone 6plus to a 128gb iPhone 6s. On my iPhone 6plus I had used 55gb of storage. I restored from iCloud on my new 6s and now for some reason 67gb is being used. I would like to get this extra storage back as I don't see what can be using it. Also when I add up all the applications listed in my storage area it doesn't add up to even close to 67gb. Ads up to 40gb. So it seems something is eating up about 25gb. Any ideas? I would prefer to not have to restore and set up as new.

    Check to see in iTunes if there's storage listed as other. If so, other is often corrupted data from backups. The best option is typically to set up as new at that point. I had that issue a while back. 23 gb of corrupted music files from a failed transfer. :(

    Can I use one of those file explorers to free up space?
