I am always running out of space on my iPhone (SE, 64Gb, iOS 12.1.2). I tried to managed everything managed via the "Settings > General > iPhone Storage" but there seems to be some media files I could delete.

When I connect my phone to iTunes, I can see that it is 10 video files, taking up more the 41 Gb of space, but impossible to locate them. I have no downloaded video on Netflix, Video, etc, ...

Screenshot from itunes: enter image description here

Screenshot from the "Iphone storage" from the "Settings" on the iPhone enter image description here

Any idea where these files could be? And how to delete them?

  • What does the storage screen on the phone itself show? – nohillside Jan 17 at 8:52
  • Same thing, with "media" instead of "video". And none of the listed applications below take that many space (the largest one being a game of 2Gb). I added the screenshot to the question. – Wiliam Jan 17 at 9:01
  • The application list actually would be the interesting part :-) but if none of the apps uses more than 2 GB it probably isn‘t that important – nohillside Jan 17 at 9:10

    None do... The largest one is 2Gb, then the next ones are all below 300Mb... And I clearly do not have enough application to make it up to 40Gb – Wiliam Jan 17 at 9:14
  • it might be that your iTunes purchases of podcasts or videos are syncing to the phone and taking up space. Please check that and turn it off in iTunes preferences-> devices. and in iTunes preferences->sharing and in iTunes preferences-> store. do respond after all three trials . – ankii Jan 19 at 13:27
