iOS 10 Increases the Amount of Available Storage on Your Device

Upgrading to iOS 10 will give users more available storage on their iPhones, iPads, and iPods. Users on Reddit who are already running Apple’s first beta report that they have more space on their devices after upgrading — especially with the 128GB models.


One user has found that since installing iOS 10 on a 128GB iPhone, their available storage increased from 113GB to 121GB. Others report seeing similar results on a 64GB iPhone 6s Plus and a 128GB iPad Pro.

The change can even be noticed on a 16GB iPhone, though it’s not quite as significant. According to one user, available storage increased from 12.6GB to 13.1GB after updating.

It’s worth remembering that iOS 10 is still in its infancy, and future betas — which could contain more features and changes — could take up more or less storage space. This doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll see a difference when iOS 10 rolls out to all, then.

In the meantime, if you’re running the iOS 10 beta, let us know down in the comments whether you’ve seen any changes in available storage on your device. We’d like to know which model you’re using, and how much of a difference iOS 10 has made.
