Hello all,

I have a 12GB iPhone SE. When I go into storage, iit tells my 11.5GB have been used up, however the data below shows I have only used approx. 2.5GB. Where has all my storage gone, and how can I get it back again?

Many thanks

There is not much that you can do about it, other than rebooting, logging out of iCloud and the App Store and restoring the device. With a bit of luck, this resolves itself with the next update in a few weeks, as Apple switches to a new file system.
