Question: Why is “media” taking up 1/3 of my storage?

My Iphone 6s with 16GB of memory. It is saying that 1/3 of the storage is being taken up my media. I’ve deleted all my media apps except Facebook Messenger, I’ve deleted photos and recently deleted (which photos has it’s own category, so I don’t know if that actually did anything for the media storage), I’ve clear text messages, and I don’t know what else could be taking up so much space with media. All my apps are taking up less than 200MB (except Messenger which is taking up 203MB) and I have next to no apps, only 5 apps that didn’t come with the phone. I also don’t have any music. Is there anything else I can do to clear some of this Media storage?

I think ‘Media’ is music and videos, not social media apps.


If you connect to iTunes on a computer, then you can see a breakdown in audio and video separately.

I couldn’t find where to look at the audio and video on the computer when I plugged up to it, but I don’t have any voice memos, and I only have 68 photos/videos. The videos are 27, 21, and 43 seconds (there is only 3). Would that be taking up that much space?


Also, the computer was saying I had a little more than 5 GB’s free, but my phone says I barely have 2. Any idea why that is?
