I am having the same issue, although I have another question at the same time. How is everyone able to see how much system takes up on their device?
I am using iphone 6s beta 5 and I go to iphone storage and I scroll to the bottom and there is nowhere to be found any mention of system storage...
I haven’t found any either after iOS 11 beta 7. I guess Apple just removes the entire thing because too many people complain about system using up too much space. They prefer hiding this info behind the door, leaving people speculating.How do you see "System" storage usage? It's not at the bottom of the list for me like it is for other people's screenshots here.
I'm on the latest public beta and i can see mine at the bottom. shrinking all the time too. down to 5.78gb.I haven’t found any either after iOS 11 beta 7.

its called "You are using beta software"Just checked on my iPad and it said 27 GB but I reloaded the settings app and it now shows 10 GB, which is still a pretty large amount, seems like there’s a bug surrounding this
I'm well aware it's beta software (I've been using iOS beta software since iOS 7) and the problems that come along with that and have filed over 20 reports since the first iOS 11 beta came out. I have over 50 GB free on my iPad so extra or erroneous system data is a nonissue for me, just wanted to let the OP know others were having this issue as wellits called "You are using beta software"
file a report like they expect you to do when you are on the betas. and if its a huge issue, stop using the betas
Out of the blue the other day, I get a message saying I'm running out of space. This baffled me as this has never been an issue before. I tend not to have a ton of apps or media. I can't tell you what my total storage typically is, but that also speaks to how much of a non-issue it has been.
Attached is a screenshot of the biggest space hogs is (i.e., Photos @ 3GB, Messages @ 621MB, etc.).
System taking 19.3GB. I have no idea why. I've been on the most recent Public Beta since the day of release. This became an issue as of yesterday. So I have no idea what caused it or how to remedy it.
I've googled and I can't see anyone with a similar issue. Any ideas?
I've had the same problem. My iPhone 7 32 Gb had 15.2 Gb taken by the iOS system. I fixed that by resetting to the factory settings by deleting everything. Then I set it up as a new iPhone and didn't restore the backup (remember to backup first). So I checked and the iOS system was down to 5.6 Gb. I erased everything one more time... Setting up to factory settings again and restored the last backup. Now the iOS system has 6.2 Gb.What about this then?!
Maybe. But when I erased everything and reset to factory settings, my iPhone 7 32 Gb went from 7 Gb of free space to 20 Gb - after completely restoring to the last iDrive backup.No it doesn’t. Windows 10 does but not iOS.
Found it, I recently recorded like 3hrs of 4K at 60fps but I was wondering why it wasn’t photos taking up all the storage but it fixed itself I guessMine is taking up 101 GB
Definitely a feature. Apple will likely claim that too much free space causes unexpected shutdownsHaving the same issue on both my iPad Pro 10,5 and iPhone 7. both running iOS 11.2.1.
System ist taking up 20+ GB.. however I noticed that it always takes a while the devices to calculate the space used for Photos, after a while the Photos GB grow and the System GB shrink. Issue or feature?
