    I'm trying to create extra storage on my phone. I had 4.8 GB of photos/video. Then I deleted a ton of photos and large videos and now its still saying I have 4.8 GB. Why is it not changing?

    Note that I recently installed OneDrive app to backup my photos/videos. Not sure if this makes a difference?

    did you delete these from within Photos (on iOS 8)?

    in 8 there is a recently deleted. maybe they are still there?
    this folder keeps the images/videos you just deleted for 30 days OR until you select and delete them again. somewhat of a pain, but i guess it saves that OOPS moment.
