So I have been trying everything to figure out what is going on with all the missing space on my 16gb iphone 6 plus. I restored the phone completely without even using a backup, and I'm still only allotted 10.50GB of the 16GB. I understand that the OS can take up to 1GB of data, but there's just no way the OS takes up more than 25% of the data on the iPhone. I can't seem to figure out where all the missing space went. Can someone help?


OUT OF THE BOX ONLY GIVES ME 10.50 GB OF AVAILABLE SPACE.

What do you mean? And it went down to 11.8GB after I restored it on iTunes. Weirdly enough I had a little bit more before even restoring, so something is definitely up there.

iOS takes up about 4 1/2 GB. I have the same thing on my 16 GB iPad Air

4.5 GB!? I thought it was like 800 or so MB. Even then, shouldn't I have 11.5 GB available? Where is the other 1GB of data going?
