    On my iPhone 5s, I lost .5gb when I upgraded yesterday.

    On my iPhone 4s, I lost .3gb.

    I thought the new OS was supposed to free up space on the iPhones.

    Well the important thing is that Apple not sacrifice their profit margins and give us any more than the bare minimum storage that is necessary when we purchase these $650 phones.

    Simple misunderstandings like that show how its no wonder why Apple doesn't advertise actual CPU or RAM numbers or various other specs that people will just not get but think that higher has to be better and that's that.

    Yep. Same here. I have a 5s.

    I downgraded back down to iOS 8.4.1 though because the experience on 9 was terrible.

    I downgraded my iPhone 6. iOS 9 caused several major issues. It's fine on my iPad Air 2 however.
