    Default How much space used by iOS6 on iPod4G

    I was thinking of updating my kids' 3 iPod touches. They are currently running 5.1.1. But they are only 8GB models, and from time to time, they run out of space and need to delete things. How much more space, on an iPod 4G, does iOS6 use over 5.1.1? Did anyone pay attention to that before and after? I've searched the web, but can't really find any solid information.

    Thanks for the help.

    Default How much space used by iOS6 on iPod4G

    Prior to updating to iOS 6 OTA, an iPod touch 4th Generation 8GB requires at least 2.3GB of free space

    Thanks. But what I'm really curious about is once installed, is the footprint of ios6 bigger than 5.1.1, and if so, how much more so on the ipod touch? Since these are only 8GB models, I don't want to upgrade if it uses up too much more space.

    Default How much space used by iOS6 on iPod4G

    The actual formatted capacity of my 8GB iPod touch 4G running iOS 6 is the same as it was running iOS 5.1.1: 6.4GB.

    Hope that helps!

    A lot of people are having issues with iOS6 on their iPods. Issues like the App Store crashing and not being able to install apps. So be aware of this before you update if you haven't updated yet! However this issue is not affecting everyone. Just a heads up.
