    Clearly the second one cannot be trusted, since your phone doesn't have a disk. ;)

    Don't bother with apps like that.

    1. iOS manages memory just fine on its own without user intervention
    2. People close apps all the time because they obsess over the free memory and the process of reopening/relaunching apps uses up battery power.

    I agree with Armen. There is nothing useful you can do with any of that info, so don't even bother with it.

    +1 to Armen.

    Both are corect though.

    iMonitor takes into account iOS memory as well as the cache memory.

    The bottom one only takes into account iOS memory.

    The cache memory is freed up when iOS requires more memory.

    Knowing used/free storage certainly has some uses, especially for those who don't have much available. As far as memory goes though, as others have mentioned, it's not something useful to really know or keep an eye on as iOS manages it on its own and trying to "help" it (or "interfere" with it) usually won't make things better.
