    You can't. Have to restore to defaults and start over. I tried to upgrade from backup and had a 20GB Other tumor.

    I have 3.32 GB of "Other". I restored this new phone from my old 4s. I didn't want to wipe it and reinstall everything but looks like I'm going to have too.

    File a bug report with Apple!

    You should file a bug report with Apple. The more reports, the more likely it is to get fixed.

    Login to using your iTunes login information. You do NOT need a developer account to do this.

    plug into iTunes and backup.

    Then completely wipe everything so its like you are starting from a new phone.

    Plug back into comp and iTunes and restore from backup.

    this should clear it.

    Im having the same problem.

    On my 128GB 6+ I have 85GB of 'Other'

    When actually I have around 86GB of music, and around 2GB of apps/photos..

    Now that for some reason iTunes thinks I've got 85GB of 'Other' i can't sync my iPhone, as Im now going like 70GB over my limit????
