    i had an iphone 4s 8GB for two years. now i noticed how phone constatly complains about storage. not big deal at first, it has happened me before too. so i did what i usually do. (open the software update search at settings, i wait till it crashhes, if not i try again. when it crashes on home page my apps start to get dark for couple seconds which is probably some kind of updating thing. then i have 1gb again on my usage. but this wasnt the case this time. nothing happened. zero bites.

    i tried some other tricks with no succees and rebooting too. i dont know what to do at this point. i dont have a single unnecessary bite used, my pictures in photos and wapp are all very important, nothing else.

    phone says that there is 0 bytes i can use and 5,3 gt used, so rest of the bytes are software etc right?

    my storage looks like this:

    wapp 700mt

    photos 300mt

    gmaps 200mt

    snap 100mt

    messenger 100mt

    twitter 100mt

    games 200mt total

    kik + news app 100mt

    music total 50mt

    instagram 40mt

    other 50mt

    so that makes only about 2gb, somethings wrong? or is that really the amount for storage to use?

    i'll try to sync with laptop now if it helps. post suggestions what should i do if you can, thanks!

    Ps: i have no mney for new phone, studies and summer took all my money

    sorry for grammar mistakes, i am pretty young and not a native speaker. ios8.41

    Make an encrypted backup with iTunes, restore your iPhone then to that backup. This is the safest way to keep your media and delete all unnecessary cache.

    Don't forget messages take up space, especially ones with photos and videos. Also, be sure to delete all photos in the "recently deleted" album. They take up space.
