Hey guys..


I recently bought me,an ipad 4 wi-fi 32gb. Logged onto my apple id, downloaded all my purchased itunes songs and apps.. When i go to see how much memory that is in use ( yes i took in mind,that the capacity isn't really 32gb ) yet it says 6 gb memory in use by apps and music etc.. When i add the data numbers that are displayed in this info then i only come to around 5 gb .. What is this difference of around 1gb and what kind of data is using this storage since i cant't find any info of what is using it.


Thanks in advance



iPad, iOS 6.0.1

    How much space is your Other using? You may be able to reduce.

    How Do I Get Rid Of The “Other” Data Stored On My iPad Or iPhone?



    With an iOS device, the “Other” space in iTunes is used to store things like documents, settings, caches, and a few other important items. If you sync lots of documents to apps like GoodReader, DropCopy, or anything else that reads external files, your storage use can skyrocket. With iOS 5, you can see exactly which applications are taking up the most space. Just head to Settings > General > Usage, and tap the button labeled Show All Apps. The storage section will show you the app and how much storage space it is taking up. Tap on the app name to get a description of the additional storage space being used by the app’s documents and data. You can remove the storage-hogging application and all of its data directly from this screen, or manually remove the data by opening the app. Some applications, especially those designed by Apple, will allow you to remove stored data by swiping from left to right on the item to reveal a Delete button.

    Thanks for your reply. I did what you said me to do, yet if i add up all those specific amounts of data it shows i still don't reach the 6 gb that my device says is in use.. So it seems that there is like something he doesn't show that uses my data.. Maby you know some more?


    Thanks in advance..
