    Yesterday I noticed my iBooks app was taking up over 15GB of my iPhone 6 Plus' storage, so I deleted all my eBooks and they barely even amounted to 1GB. Looked again today and iBooks has swollen to 20GB. What is going on with my phone? I plug into iTunes and it says I have 64GB of Other data that wasn't there before. Running iOS 8.4 if that helps.

    I have a lot of books in iBooks and mine is only using 242 MB. So . . . I'm not sure why you would be showing that much usage if you've removed them. Have you tried restarting your device, to see if that clears it up?

    I've done a hard reset around 5 times already as well as turning the phone off and on the normal way, but it doesn't do anything to fix the problem. Why is iBooks taking up so much space on my phone?-imoreappimg_20150813_163911.jpg

    Do you have audiobooks? In 8.4, audiobooks were moved from Music to iBooks.

    You could try Battery Doctor and see if that helps clear cache.
