    Hi.

    Recently I've noticed that the "Other" storage portion on my iPhone 6s has been increasing substantially with iOS 9.3 beta 6 and below.

    I know what "Other" classifies as (such as caches) and I have done everything possible to clear as much cache as possible with Battery Doctor (which works) and by deleting apps that have lots of Documents and Data.

    I have a total of 1.80 GB of "Other" on my device and I was wondering how much you guys have, so I can get a feeling of what's normal and so I can determine when to restore.

    Thanks for any feedback!

    201 mb cause i recently made a backup, restored device, then restored the backup while diagnosing a different issue. doing this also erases a huge chunk of "other" data. prior i had 1.9gb+.

    been like this since i ever had an iphone, dont know why apple isnt addressing it, give a cache clearing option or a "disk cleanup" like something..something for it. even when all apps like twitter etc gain their caches back, its still no where near as big, so its something else using it..

    I haven't looked at "other" since the iPhone 4 was the current phone. Never noticed any questionable storage loss on my 5 or 6 to warrant looking at "other" to investigate.

    haiz !!! now if using the iPhone 16gb, I think it will not be enough for the needs of the individual user

    Less than 1 Gb, which is completely understandable.

    20.19 gb of other on a 128gb iPhone 6s - Its jailbroken so I assume some of it is the j/b maybe.

    Not touch it - I love my j/b even if it is 9.02 - I still have another 37gb left to play with

    Not necessarily, I had 5 GB of "other" on a 16 GB iPhone 5 and the phone was maxed-out not allowing even an OS update.

    1.01gb on my iPhone 6S (non JB)

    0 on my iPad Air 2 (non JB) which I find very strange.

    Orange is audio, light purple is Photos, dark purple is iBooks, and dark green/teal is documents and data.
