That seems like an awful lot...
my phone is only 16 GB ...
Mine says it needs 4.6 for OTA. either way, that's just lame.
yeah, makes me think i'll just skip on this update. i'll have my 6 on friday no biggie
It's used for installation. Unpacking files etc. You regain the space after.
Install using iTunes instead.
I usually take my music off and then resync it. That's 5gb right there that's easy to gain. Or offload photos onto your computer.
I deleted 12 apps this morning to get myself over 3 GB free in preperation of it, then ended up having to quickly delete 19 more to get myself to the 4.6 GB. I feel bad for anyone who needs 5.7 GB and is on a 16 GB iPhone. That seems tough.
I was thinking about people with 8gb iPhone 5C's lol.
My girlfriend is on an 8GB, no ios 8 for her
I just had to delete Word, Excel, Powerpoint and as few other apps to get myself to the 4.7 that I need.
I imagine that's not even possible for them...the OS takes a portion, plus 8 GB isn't really 8.0 GB of space when you adjust for bits/bytes
On my iPad Air, it says it needs *6.9GB* free to install. Does Apple randomly pick a number of available storage before it lets you install or what
Downloaded Update + Unpacked Update + Backup of existing OS = 5.7GB
Yeah id imagine a couple gbs free after everything said and done
Seems that 5.7GB are needed during the install/unpacking the update. The actual update will add the 1.1GB to your OS size, which on the 5s, seems like it will take up 4.3GB of space - not nice for "16GB" phones
Well it is a new OS.
Do a clean install.
My iphone 5S 64GB wants 6.8GB to install ios8
Maybe it will be better to wait for my iphone 6 128GB to have ios8
why are people so against just using iTunes to update it? problem solved.
Interesting that there's an ongoing debate about how Apple is shafting it's customers by still selling 16gb iPhones as the base model, & they continuously release software updates that take up more & more space. Classic.
It only needed 4.6GB to install on my 5c. And when it was done I was left with roughly the same amount of free space.
For me- my computer is an old dog, and I can't even get to it until I get home. Doing it OTA at work would be so nice.
Edit- actually, I don't think I even have 100mb free on my computer. I'll have to reset my phone, download the update, and restore using iCloud wirelessly.
Well for me when I go to iTunes and click on "Check for Update" it says I am already on the latest OS - which happens to be iOS 8 b5. I guess I can download the update file and force it but I am remote and that isn't as easy as it seems at the moment.
That's what I had to do as well due to space on my iPad. Worked ok though.
Well, my iPhone 5 and iPad Air updated fine through iTunes on my Mac, few server errors but got it much easier than in the past, and my father's iPhone on PC was fine, but my mother's on the same PC gave an unknown error and got stuck, so had to do a full restore from the back up I'd just done. :roll eyes:
Had to remove some stuff to get it to install on my mothers phone even through iTunes as there was no room, told her have 8GB wasn't enough.
