    Hey, my iPhone 5 32gb shows it's out of space, yet I only have 10gb of stuff on it. Says 0 bytes available. Is this a known bug?

    Some app probably has cached data. I've seen tapatalk eat 10GB or more of space because it caches every single photo you've ever looked at forever.

    You can try PhoneClean, it generally cleans app caches. (No idea if it will work with iOS 8 however).

    Restore your phone as NEW and just re-install your apps.

    Doesn't work with iOS8. The "other" is in error. As soon as you tape synce iTunes properly does so.

    I assume that you have looked at Settings --> General --> Usage?

    What does it say for Available / Used?

    For me it was photos and music I loaded from iTunes. I had to un-check the sync photos and sync music in iTunes then hit apply. The many gigabytes of "other" then went away.

    Good Luck:)

    Could have been the photos then. I had 10 Gb of residual photos that iTunes saw as other and the iPhone settings didn't count against the data usage. Maybe, it is some other content loaded from iTunes before you upgraded to iOS 8.

    Maybe. It's weird since I really have 10gb of stuff total and restored from iCloud backup because I have a lot of texts and things

    iTunes Match still caches data on the device.
