iPhone 5C says that storage is full even though it isn't anywhere near full?

Views: 1059 Replies: 3
My phone has recently been telling me that storage is full, even though when I checked my usage (here are some pictures) the combined total is just over 900MB - not even 1GB..

I don't understand how or why my phone could think that 900MB = 5GB and although I have deleted many things, it still stays the same. I am unable to take photos, download/update apps, etc. and I would like to know if there is a way to fix this.

A few weeks ago, I used a trick I found on BuzzFeed (www.buzzfeed.com/nicolenguy...) - would this help?

My phone has also been extremely slow lately. I believe it's running the latest version of iOS and it is nearly one year old. If any more information is needed I can supply it.

Try to get the missing space back by restoring the phone again:

Use iTunes to restore your iOS device to factory settings - Apple Support

Hi

Try a reboot press & hold power button & menu button hold both down until you see apple logo

This can take 30 seconds .

Don,t forget a 16G iPhone only has about 12.5G the ios takes space up.

Cheers

5GB suggests that you're looking at iCloud storage (backups) not the device storage. Can you confirm or deny this?
