    On the bottom of the iTunes summary page for my iPhone is a graph showing how much space each category of items takes up of my available 8gb. So Audio takes up 288mb; apps 1.3 gb, etc. There is one category named "Other". For the year+ that I've owned the phone Other was about a gigabyte. This week--it doubled to over 2 gb totally maxing out my phone. I had to delete a gigabyte of apps, photos, etc to free up space.

    What happened (I think I installed OS 8.1 about this time)?
    Did something take over my phone?
    How can I manage the data stored in "other"?
    Is there some way to find out what is in there and delete what I don't need?

    Thanks,
    Russell Heath

    I have seen this before and I did a backup and then a fresh iOS download and restore through iTunes. My extra space came back as normal.

    I think doing updates with OTA keeps most files on the device, which uses plenty of storage.
