    iOS 11 GM on iPhone 7 128GB

    About shows: Capacity 128GB and Available 91.7

    This is clearly wrong as I have ~49GB photos, ~6GB music downloaded and 208 apps installed.

    If I go to iPhone Storage, the color bar at the top only has about 1/8 of the bar left of free space, but it says above it, "35.8 GB of 128 GB used."

    A restart does not fix the incorrect numbers. It used to be that if I went *back* to the About screen, the Available space reflects the true available space. But, not anymore. It is still wrong.

    Has anybody else experienced this? Hoping to avoid having to restore.

    Thanks.

    Yeah I’ve been experiencing this also. Mentioned it in another thread and no one had an answer. I didn’t have this issue on iOS 10.

    Any progress or update on this issue for you? I still have it. Pretty frustrating.

    Same device model as you, my free space jumped up from 60GB to 68GB after the update.
