    Hello,

    There is 1GB data on my iPhone marked as "other" besides "audio", "apps", etc.. I wonder what it is and if I could get rid of it somehow?

    messages, attachments in messages and emails, call logs, voice notes, as well as other things make up "other"

    Thank you for the quick reply! Deleting e-mails with attached files might help?

    do you have a lot of notes, voice notes, iMessages?

    those all are part of Other also

    I have zero notes and voice notes, not that many iMessage. What I can remember, the size of "other" significantly increased when I was uploading files to Dropbox, but that app has been already removed.

    thats not the issue. I think Apple is holding on to data that we think that we have deleted
