iPad Air 16gb. Where has all my storage gone?!

a liberal calculation of the space my apps take up is around 3 gigs...I dont store any media on my ipad...what gives...it tells me I have used 11 gb and have less than 1 left...the only thing I can think of is that I watch Netflix on it daily...but I didnt think the iPad stored temp files and the only solution I could see there is deleting the app and reinstalling...

help???

Thanks! I'll check it out : )

I'm slowly converting to the Apple Massive...but I'm very used to being able to dig into the OS and find and delete things myself.

Re: iPad Air 16gb where has all my storage gone?!

So, I don't have any contacts on my iPad and I only send emails through webmail on Safari. Not sure that CCleaner will do anything for me?

Is it possible that the apps are actually taking up more space than the Settings > General > Storage screen is telling me?

...I swear...I just deleted a few apps and its now telling me I have less remaining storage than before *facepalm*

try clearing your web browser caches and/or setting them to lower numbers in their preferences.
I don't have an iPad so I don't know for sure if this is possible unless the apps are similar enough to normal computer programs. But it's worth a try.

Isn't the OS around 8GB now?

Yea. I think the last update was big. The real issue is that no matter what I delete there seems to be about a five gig discrepancy between what is used and available...maybe that is the OS?

I am seriously about to just factory reset the SOB...

Have you by chance synced it with your macbook or iMac? I thought I was setting mine up to stream songs from my MBP but it ended up storing songs on there which took up a lot of space.
