I would make a full backup of your device, then restore it to factory settings, and, at the end, set it up as new. This operation will install a fresh copy of iOS. Follow these steps:

Restore your iPhone, iPad, or iPod to factory settings - Apple Support

Test it for a while and check your iPhone Storage.

Then restore it from your previously made backup:

Thanks Giulio for your reply. But the minute I restore the backup, the program will come again.

I have that when I got my new iPhone 7+ and problem appeared as soon as I restored my backup.

Whay I am having this huge space of system files?

And how can solve the issue?

Appreciating all help ans support.

Thanks a lot panchososa694 for ur reply. The only issue is my backup. If I restore my backup, then at that moment I am back tobsquare one.

What matters to me the most is my whatsApp chats. I am willing to lose all my data but my whatsApp conversation.

How can I can backup whatsApp only through iTunes? I cannot do it in iCloud because of the size.

Plz help me in resolving this issue!!
