    Friend has an iPhone 6s, 64GB currently saying there is no storage available, even though there clearly should be. Also looked up & saw it isn't unique to him. Deleting things still result in an Available storage of 0 bytes.

    Plugged into iTunes?

    Bet it's "Other" storage that's taken the space!

    what does iTunes say about space when you plug the phone in?

    Doubt that in this case, especially since it was just sudden & also as mentioned deleting apps still resulted in it showing 0 bytes available.

    checking that now.

    ------

    Reporting the correct amount of free space, in this case is ~34.13GB. Phone now reflects this.

    ------

    Wouldn't count it to be just a display issue though since apps acted accordingly to what was being reported e.g.

    Is there a lot of "Other" storage? If so, backup his phone and then restore the phone and restore that backup.

    Has happened again a couple of times. Couple of minutes again the storage was going down at an alarming rate, a GB or so a minute. A restart stopped it though & it is back to normal again. Difference being he is now running iOS 9.1 beta.

    Ended up up finding out the cause. It was somehow related to iCloud Music Library.

    I think what's happening is its trying to download my entire iCloud music library to my iPhone. And then when it runs out of space and realizes the library can't fit and I do a sync it deletes the library and I get back my space
