    I recently started using an iPhone 5c with 8Gb. Today, I plugged it into my computer to sync my ringtones from iTunes and I saw there was a difference in the free usage. My iTunes tells me there is still 3,85Gb available (which is the most logic since there is only a total of 5,2Gb on the 8Gb version of the 5c), but my iPhone tells me I only have 2,8Gb of free space... I only have 13 apps. I have no pictures or music on my iPhone. The apps are Facebook, Messenger, Snapchat, Whatsapp, Swarm, Foursquare, ING, Youtube, Yelo Play, MyMobistar, SoundCloud, Twitter and Instagram. I don't think those apps use like 2,4 GB do they? 1,4Gb would be understandable but 2,4Gb is just too much... How can I solve this 1Gb gap?? Or is my iPhone right??

    I think I figuered it out. First of all, I saved my backup to my computer instead of iCloud, after doing that, the amount of free space in iTunes changed to 3,1Gb. Then I downloaded Battery Doctor to my iPhone and cleaned the junk. It cleaned like 315Mb so the free space changed to 3,1Gb on my iPhone too hope I can help someone with this

    One thing many forget to consider is the "recently deleted" album. Those pics can add up and cause storage issues on the phone as well as taking space in the iCloud back up. I always make sure they are deleted before backing up.
