    Videos take up most the space, then comes photos.

    Just the 11 videos could be the difference. How big are these videos?

    In your music settings turn off (wait a min or so) and turn back on your "icloud music library" toggle

    Deleted texts and not made much difference

    Gone into storage and it says pocketcast is taking up 17GB..that seems a lot.

    Well, sounds like Pocketcast might be storing/caching things. Any other app/service taking up a lot of space there?

    Yeah cheers, it made a difference by about 2GB.

    Since doing this and removing the pocketcasts that was downloaded i’m On about 30GB remaining which is a lot better than being on 15GB

    Are documents and data showing a large amount? My husbands phone had that with over 20gb's. Went into general/storage & iCloud usage/manage storage to clean that crap out. His ESPN app was one of the culprits. Deleted the app and re-downloaded it.
