    I'm cleaning up my iphone before updating to the 6+ and iOS8.
    I've had 12GB photos, 7GB "others", and some apps.

    I've deleted most of the photos and now have only 1.5GB left.
    I also removed my email accounts, deleted many photos/attachements from iMessage and Whatsapp, removed some apps, deleted voice memos etc.

    When i plug it into iTunes now, it says 1.5GB photos (correct), but the "Others" went up to 12GB.

    So basically, uninstalling apps, removing photos and attachements, or something else added 5GB to "others"?

    Anybody any idea?
