I have an iPhone 4S that downloaded iOS 9 the other day. Now I lost a ton of storage. I went to Settings > General > Usage > Manage Storage, selected Delete Update, and selected Delete Update again to confirm - but the file was relatively small. Where did the rest of my space go?

I've deleted old apps and moved most photos off the phone, no music or videos. In the usage folder, the thing taking up the largest space is photos at only 266 MB. In fact, I added all the apps together and it's only 1500 MB (around 1.5 GB) Where did it all go? 6 GB max storage.

  • Did you try rebooting the phone? – Tetsujin Oct 4 '15 at 15:08
  • Tetsujin, thanks for the response. If by rebooting, you mean turn off and turn back on, yeah, I did. – Vanessa Lauria Oct 5 '15 at 16:00
  • Sometimes a sync; backup [use Encrypted]; restore, in iTunes can make it think again about what space is being used. Never had one that stubborn myself so never had to go that far. – Tetsujin Oct 5 '15 at 16:02
