    I've noticed since iOS 5 that the contents of my phone now include 6.5GB of "other". Does anyone have any idea what that is and how I can get rid of it?

    Also, when I dig into the iCloud "manage" area on the iPhone, I noticed that all my apps are backed up to iCloud. How is this different than before iOS 5? Were apps being backed up to my computer then?


    Thanks in advance!

    Sorry just realized posted in the wrong forum. Please ignore and I'll repost in the iCloud forum.

    A buddy of mine had the same problem after updating and for him it seemed like itunes was trying to double sync music to his phone. He had a ton of duplicate songs that showed that he had 8 GB of other.

    Someone else who had this problem just told me that he had to unsync and then resync everything. Ugh.

    I had this same problem (had 8.5GB of "other"). I had to "restore" using iTunes and it went away. Make sure you have a current backup before restoring.

    Like curtisinoc, I did a restore and it solved the problem.

    Thanks, everyone, for the help!

    And if anyone else is having this issue, restoring does indeed solve the problem.
