Is there any fix for the "System taking 50% of memory" bug?

    It has been widely noticed that, in iOS 11, the size of the System is bugged and is overly inflated. Now, while the most ardent fanboys are claiming that it's perfectly normal for the system to take nearly half of the device's space, normal people have noticed that restoring the iPhone or the iPad reduces the size of the System back to its true size.

    The thing is, restoring the device every week is not a solution. Apple may as well expect people to buy a new device every month (or do what the very convenient add says when the device warns that its memory is full, and buy iCloud space).

    Has anyone here seen any way to actually fix this issue? Or do we need to wait for a "SystemGate" before anyone actually bothers with this? :rolleyes:

    This sounds like basically the old "Other" that often took up 5-10gb of my storage. Mine keeps going up and down from 5gb to 8-9gb

    Widely noticed? Oh please. :rolleyes:

    System storage should be between 8-12GB normally. That includes the size of the OS and all formatting. Anything added on top of that is junk throughout your device and only a result of what you do on your device. Download Dr. Clean or MagicCleaner, clear the cache and call it a day.

    The amount of "conspiracy" and "gate" nonsense is ridiculous.

    FYI you lose all credibility for bringing in the word "fanboy" and essentially attacking them.

    Hit a nerve, did I? ;)

    Sure, go into denial mode. I'm sure there's no such thing as "iPhone throttling" either. :cool:

    Hit a nerve? Not at all. I just don’t fall for ad hominems and those that use it can’t find a way to attack an argument so they attack the person. Thus, losing all credibility.

    Cache cleaners? Unsafe usually that can make things worse.

    System caching files on cloud storage to improve performance? Reasonable and useful probably as noted in another current thread.
