    image.png image.png I currently am sitting at around 100 mb of storage, the problem is I have no clue where it is going to. I checked my settings, and the most data is in my messages, which is 260 mb, what can I do to free up space, or find where all the storage is going to?

    Welcome to iPhone Forums!

    Connect your iPhone to iTunes (computer and take a look at the information about it's storage there. It will be displayed in different colours. If there's an orange part called "Others", and it uses more than ~ 2 GB of your storage, then make sure you have a most recent backup and restore your iPhone, using iTunes.
    This should help getting rid of part of the unnecessary "Other" storage.

    Hope that helps.

    If the backup and restore doesn't work you can try a third party cleaner to delete hidden cache files. That worked for me and freed up roughly 3gigs
