Good morning and Happy Friday!

I still have my 12 Pro max 512gb and never had any space issues until I installed ios16 for some reason. I don't recall how much free space I had before ios 16 but it was definitely 100+ GB. Since installing ios 16, I have very little remaining free space on my phone. I think it was under 10 GB after the install. I finally deleted 100s of videos, some imessages, and apps I don't need to free up some space which I've never had to do. This morning I checked and only have 326MB of free space.

Anyone having similar issues?

Also having space issues. System Data keeps gobbling up space. Currently it is 327GB on a 512GB iPhone 14 Pro Max.

I called Apple and opened a case. Workaround is to shutdown and restart iPhone. Annoying.

And then after restart things return to normal. See second set of images.

It builds up again over a couple of days. I have been having this problem for a little while.
