    Ever since I installed the DP1, my free space has slowly been trickling down. If I open and close Storage & iCloud usage, every 10 seconds the storage goes down by about 0.01GB.

    This happens only when connected to the internet.

    I reset all content and settings and set up the device as a new device, and this still happens (on a brand new install) I was down to 8gb free after a few hours (on a 16gb device).

    Any ideas?

    iCloud Photo Library with Optimise iPhone Storage?
    Something getting data in the background? Could use Settings, General, storage and icloud usage, manage storage to do a quick check (screen shot the top ones?) then also check Settings, mobile data, screen shot the system services at the bottom, reset statistics, then see what goes up?

    If you've got iCloud on, then presumably it's getting a few hundred emails, contacts, photos etc to sync up with the full/optimised set of data you currently have? (something else other than iCloud could be doing a similar thing)
