    I plugged in my iPad Air 2 today and it's only showing up as 60gb...
    All my other devices; iPad Mini and iPhone 6 show up as 64gb.
    Attached is a screen shot. This is odd and I've never seen this happen before. Anyone with any ideas?

    And yes I named it John Wick's Dog

    I ejected it and plugged it back in and now it's normal. But then the wifi crapped out. I had to hop off the wifi and back on.

    I had a wifi issue the other day where I lost wifi if I would airplay... the airplay would stay on but the wifi icon would disappear and I could not get on the internet... Is this an iOS8 bug?

    My iPhone 6 is a 128gb model but only showed 114gb in iTunes.

    I assumed it was due to the OS and all that taking up an initial amount of space.

    That's also something to do with the fact they can't make a legitimate 128gb SSD because of something to do with the fact hat 1mb is not actually 1000 kb or something. Not really sure what the deal is but that could take off a couple hypothetical gigabytes.

    Aah that would make sense as effectively 128gb isn't 128,000mb exactly.

    I wasn't worried as such although I used to work in a call centre supporting home users. Loads of customers would call telling me their 50gb hard drive didn't show exactly 59gb etc they used to have a right moan haha

    OP was referring to the display of "60GB" on the upper left, not the capacity field. Does yours say 114GB under the device picture like OP's showed 60GB? Curious.

    All of my devices have come up as 64gb by the name of the device until this incident. Look at the name of the device in iTunes not that capacity.

    To me this doesn't seem to be a GiB vs GB issue (1024 ^ 3 vs 1000 ^ 3) - it is weird that iTunes doesn't acknowledge the iPad model as being of the 64 GB variant (since iPads don't come in 60 GB models). iTunes must be reading some value wrong. I'll let you know what my 64 reports when I get home.
