    What is "Other" in iTunes. Can anyone help me with it? Because last night it was taking up 1.37 GBs but this morning I woke up and all of a sudden it's taking up 4.40 GBs! I even used this app called "Phone Clean" on my computer to delete messages, phone calls, etc. And I only have 10 apps, no videos, no notes, and I don't use email, iCloud or anything. Please help.

    Do you have any IOS updates pending? Ones that have downloaded but not installed yet?

    iOS 8 but I don't want to upgrade.

    I use phone clean, and I clear all of my caches, and I don't use email.

    The increased other is likely from the update you are not doing. If an update is showing in your settings it takes up a lot of *other* space. If you do the update it will go down to what you had.
