I have to solve following problem.
iPhone 5 of which the OS has not been updated recently because of too less free space.
Under Usage, it said that there was 0MB of free space. Suddenly, it shut down automatically. After pressing the on/off button, it will show the black screen with white Apple logo and stay there.
- Letting the battery become empty, recharging it and pressing the on/off button again (or on/off button and button below screen simultaneously) does not help.
- Nor connecting to a computer with iPhoto to remove data in order to add free memory: the iPhone does not show up in iPhoto.
- It is possible to connect to iTunes in recovery mode, but it makes no sense to install the latest OS in factory settings, since the iPhone was not updated using iTunes recently and might have insufficient space to install the most recent OS.
Is there anything I can try other than contacting an Apple store?
