    I notice that when syncing, a new section called Documents and Data is displayed. I am not sure if this used to be included in "Other" and is now broken out, or what. Can anyone tell me what this represents? Mine is taking up 9GB. I thought it was representing documents and data being used by apps, but even after deleting a couple of apps that had been showing large amounts of documents and data in the usage section of settings, the 9GB has remained the same. Thanks.

    Just FYI Mine iOS 7 update was restored with a iOS 6 back up.... So not sure what yours can be...

    You use iWork?

    No, I do not use iWork. At first from reading online I thought that it was a glitch where apps and their corresponding documents and data were being double counted. But deleting all of my apps had zero bearing on the 9 GB.
    I cannot imagine it would be any jailbreak residue since I restored to IOS 7. This sucks. I'm at a dead end.

    Well you COULD try a clean install. Wipe it clean and then install what ya need and see what happens..

    If not the result you wanted. Then just do a restore...

    Extremely odd though....


    Let me know how it goes, and have a great weekend!

    Ummmmm, yeah I'm at 27G and even after seeing that my messaging app was using 26G i went and deleted all text/iMessages that were more than one year old and still nothing. With a 32G phone I've over time had to delete all music and pictures from my phone. Perplexed. Help?

    5.82 GB Documents and Data after ios7 update. I have deleted nearly every message. I do not have Pages or Numbers on my phone. What else could be in there?

    At that time, it was the yellow portion of the color coded graph/chart? that breaks down what's on your device when you are connected to iTunes. Until iOS 7 it had always been 'other'. I'll see if I can snag a pic.

    Here is a pic off of the Internet. When I was running iOS 7, 'other' became 'documents & data'.

    I just got the 5S this morning and my Documents & Data section has 2.89GB...any updates on how this stuff is able to be removed? I need to put music back on my (now, sadly, smaller) phone

    Try deleting your text message history. Looks like this section is storing messages and images that I have sent back and forth - 6gb worth.

    I also noticed the "docs & data" colored bar right away last night after updating to iOS7 when I did a back-up. My docs & data shows 127mb and my other is showing about 1.49(i think it was?).
