    Hello Everyone,
    My iPad Mini 2 (16GB Wifi only) is saying that I only have 579 MB available but everything I've counted doesn't add up. I plugged it into my Mac (Macbook Air 11" 2013 1.3GHz i5) and it said that it has 2.07 GB free. This can be seen in these two pictures. I need help as to why this is happening.
    Thanks! Screen Shot 2015-07-19 at 11.36.28 am.png IMG_0445.jpg

    You likely have a downloaded software update waiting to be run...

    Perhaps there is a bunch of apps on it using a lot of space.

    The question was posted back in 2015. It's probably been solved already.

    Likely just temp/cache files. Could probably recover the space by doing an iTunes backup+restore.

    “I updated to 8.4” I was wondering how that was possible haha.
