    I deleted a large file from an app on my new iPhone 8 Plus, yet the corresponding storage space isn't showing as removed from my phone when looking in the General > iPhone Storage section of the phone. The only way to get the storage to show as gone is to uninstall the app, not something I want to do every time I remove a file.

    The app may not have actually “deleted” the file from the storage until you uninstall it, at which point the OS itself deletes everything, rather than depending on what an app does. It could just be a bug within the app itself.
