iOS 8 swallows more free space!

iOS & iPadOS

Hello wonderful people,

Have anyone of you noticed as IOS8 is sucking more free space from our device? For me, while I was with IOS7.1, it was showing me as I was having 12 gig free space and I haven't added anything after that. I've just updated my phone and now, it's showing as I got only 8 something gig free space. where those 4 gig gone? Is this happened to anybody else?

I will have to look but I thought they fixed that bug before release. Remember though the file opsw is 2 gigs, and it extracts so maybe the temp and ipsw never got removed?

Take care.

I notice the capacity on my phone when updating on a 16 gig went down from a 14 gig to a 12 gig so even to run it must be taking up more gig.
