Load up iTunes on your computer.My iPhone complains it's almost full. It reports I've used about 26GB of my 32GB. But when I check the list of apps and their individual usage, I get nowhere near these 26GB.
My guess is it's mostly email and attachments (how many historical messages from how many accounts do you have), also do you have a lot of photos attachments in other messaging apps like WhatsapYeah I've got about 15GB "other". Tried the PhoneClean application but it just finds a few hundred MB's it can clean..
1-2GB sounds about typical.I've got the same problem on my 16GB iPhone 4S. It shows 2GB used up by 'Other'. And I don't have the option of restoring because that will force me to update to iOS 7.
This may be in the other links above I didn't follow, but iBackupBot allows you to make a local backup, delete the crud, and then restore that backup onto your phone. I removed about 2GB on mine.I've got the same problem on my 16GB iPhone 4S. It shows 2GB used up by 'Other'. And I don't have the option of restoring because that will force me to update to iOS 7.
You're on the right track - you don't stream iTunes videos, you download them to the phone whilst watching them.I reinstalled my iPhone and got all space back! Odd.
However, now the problem is back again. I've got about 150MB's free on my 32GB 5S.
I seriously suspect that streaming iTunes movies are flawed, this is the only thing I can think of that takes up my space. Perhaps it's buffering when watching but space isn't deallocated properly.
And lose everything in the process.If you do a clean restore, set up as new, do not restore to backup - you will recover almost all the "other" space.
