Is there a (significant) delay after you delete something on your iPhone (or any iOS device, I suppose) before that space is actually available again (shown in Settings and/or other system tools apps)?

Namely, I deleted an app (a file manager/repository) today with 30+ GB of data (because it wouldn't let me delete some of the files in the app, even if I tried it with iFunBox via USB). However, the total amount of space gained was a few gigabytes less than that.

Does iOS perform some file system maintenance during idle times (like overnight), so the space would show up eventually? (Meaning also... suppose you delete data and apps, do you get back all of those 57+ GB that are on a 64 GB iPhone?)
