If you try to buy the Lord of The Rings movie from iTunes, it should give you a "No space left" message. Tap that and it should make more room and update the available space counter. You could also try downloading this app (https://appsto.re/us/hUYK7.i) and cleaning junk data files once you've done the first step.

It appears you are looking at the iCloud info in System Preferences on an Apple laptop or desktop. Inside System Preferences, after you click on iCloud, you then click on Manage in the lower right corner. When that window comes up, the top option is highlighted but not necessarily selected. If it's not selected, the backups will not show in the right column. ...

Try this: Plug your device into your computer. Download the app iFunbox. Go to the root file system, then open the directory "Application Archives" then delete all of the ipa files. Another alternative (without ads) is iMazing it does an amazing job with my files. (It's a paid app)

Not all applications are stored in /Applications. That's the default install folder for most applications, but it doesn't include all applications. In fact, since applications are really just bundles of files, most applications can be run from anywhere. To demonstrate this, take a look in System Profiler at Software > Applications. You'll see lots of ...

When my Mac was almost full it used to do that. Usually 2 or 3 GB, i believe that is really a kind of cache. I upgraded my storage with a SD adapter and it stopped to happen. Mine is from TheMiniDrive, now i have more 256GB hehehe

No, iMessage and iCloud are (for all intents and purposes) unrelated services. Photos and videos sent or received through iMessage are only stored on Apple's servers long enough to deliver them to all devices you have registered, or seven days, whichever occurs first.

It all comes down to your convenience. The MacBook Pro (MBP) uses a proprietary interface for their SSD; PCIe 2.0 x4. This is why they are so expensive as you have noticed. Upgrading the SSD in the MBP to a larger SSD, whether you get it at time of purchase or you get it later on, is going to be an expensive proposition and the only reason that you do ...

I also chose a minidrive to upgrade my storage. But i bought mine on TheMiniDrive and it works great. I think is the simplest solution and if you need more than 128GB they can provide the device. Ask through email. Mine is 256GB

Most likely it's the operating system, in this case, iOS. The operating system needs a certain amount of space on the iPad. In this way, you don't get the amount of storage that you pay for, since iOS tends to usually take up anywhere from 1 to 4 GB of storage, depending on which version you're running.

You've got some different questions here. The iCloud app isn't meant to show your photos; that's what the Photos app is for. When you delete photos, it doesn't actually delete them; it puts them in a folder called "Recently Deleted" where they are retained for 30 days before actually being deleted. You have to delete them again from that folder if you want ...

NB: For the purpose of this answer, I will assume you are using Time Machine. No, these are Time Machine's "Mobile Backups". You can disable them by running, from Terminal.app: (you may be prompted for your password) sudo tmutil disablelocal # disables local backups and if the above command didn't remove the backups after a while, from Terminal.app: ...

Firstly - do not worry about "Other". This is a catch-all category and will include lots of system-only files, uncategorizable files etc. Unless these are stored within your user home directories then don't worry about them. According to OSX Daily, the summary overview in Disk Utility will give a total for all video files - anywhere on the disk. Some of ...
