    I had less than 500 MB of storage space left on my iPhone when I received the notification that iOS 8.3 is ready to be installed. After the update got installed I had around 1.3 GB storage space but I'm wondering if I had done the update via iTunes was there a chance of getting more storage space?
    Updated via OTA and had 5.9 GB available with my 21 apps installed. Since I'd just been layering iOS updates on top of 8.0 I decided I'd plug into to iTunes and restore since I normally set up as new for iOS.X updates. Now, after a clean install of 8.3 through iTunes, I have 8.6 GB available with the same 21 apps and pics on the phone.

    How do I do that now? I mean now that I've already updated can I go back and re-update it via iTunes?

    Plug you phone into your computer and launch iTunes. Do a full back up. When the backup finishes, do the Restore iPhone option. That will cause iTunes to download a full, new copy of iOS 8.3 and install it on your phone. Then you can restore your data from the backup you made at the beginning of this process.

    This^^

    The only thing I did differently was not restore my data from a backup. Set mine up as a brand spanking new 6 Plus!

    From my experience the update file on iTunes is MUCH larger than OTA. For example one time OTA was 500mb and iTunes was over a gig

    True. The iTunes method installs the full, complete iOS. The OTA method only installs deltas to update the current level to the newest level. One could argue that problems could be introduced by not installing the entire new iOS. In my experience, I don't recall ever encountering that, but it can happen.

    I've never had an issue with apple's ota updates. Back in the day with Palm, I would get a 'clogged' system after a few patches and had to finally install the new OS as a fresh complete install. Just my experience.

    There was a fix for it posted on the main page of this site...
    Touch ID not working for you post iOS 8.3? Here's the fix!
    You don't have to reboot the phone though, you can skip that step. I did and it works fine.
    I just toggled mine off then entered my password and it worked again.

    I haven't downloaded anything new from the App Store as of late, but I did this just in case my Touch ID might have had that issue so now I don't have to worry about.

    Same here. I've never had a problem with Apple's OTA updates.
    I usually do all my updates thru usb to iTunes. This was the first time I did it from my phone ota and I'm happy with the results, so depending on the size of the updates, I may do them ota here and there.

    Never an OTA issue with mine or my Wife's updates either. It has always gone smooooth! iOS 7 took the longest time at a little over an hour. I have never updated using iTunes.

    Me too. It's the 3rd party keyboards that cause the messages issues. I don't know if it's Apple or the Keyboard apps that need to fix it. But someone needs to!

    From what I've been reading its a ram issue. 3rd party keyboards only have a limited amount of ram to run within that Apple has designated and once they pass it the keyboard crashes. I have no idea if this is true but that's what I've read.

    Is anyone else having an issue where you have your phone on charge and it gets stuck on 99% and then you take it off charge and plug it back in and it automatically says 100% or is this just me?

    I've already posted a thread about this but thought it might be helpful to add my 8.3 issue in here too.

    iPad Mini reporting Total iCloud Storage of 1.0 GB with an available storage size which equals both my iPhone and iPad backups combined. Luckily I don't backup photos to iCloud so the total backup size for iPhone and iPad is less than 300MB.

    My iPhone which is also running 8.3 and has the same iCloud/Apple ID is reporting correctly 5.0 GB Total Size so it's only my iPad Mini that is displaying incorrectly.

    Found a girl on Twitter who has the exact same issue after updating to iOS 8.3. Wondered if anyone else is experiencing it? Most probably wouldn't have even noticed I'm sure but if you check your iCloud Storage on your iPad Mini's or infact any other iOS device that might be affected you will either see your correct total storage of 5.0 GB for FREE accounts or whatever you pay for if you have upgraded OR you will see 1.0 GB if you are affected by this issue...

    I'm very happy with this update. Very nice improvements and fixes. I'm getting much better battery than 8.2. It's probably as close to iOS 8.1.2 battery. 8.2 battery was horrible for me.
