iOS 8.1.1 on iPad gives back 500MB of storage space

<div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even" property="content:encoded"><p><a href='http://www.imore.com/ios-811-will-give-your-ipad-back-about-500-mb-storage-space' title="iOS 8.1.1 on iPad gives back 500MB of storage space"><img src='http://www.imore.com/sites/imore.com/files/styles/large_wm_brw/public/field/image/2014/10/ipad_mini_3_georgia_hero.jpg?itok=MH2ox5iD' />[/url]</p> <p>iOS 8.1.1 (http://www.imore.com/ios-81) not only provides bug fixes and performance improvements, especially for iPhone 4s and iPad 2, but it also comes with a nice surprise for all iPad owners — it returns about half a gigabyte of storage space.<!--break--></p> <p>After hearing about it from several readers last night, I tested it on a couple iPads in my possession, and in both cases post-update storage availability grew considerably. My iPad mini 3 (http://www.imore.com/ipad-mini-3) it went from 7.5 GB remaining to 7.9 GB remaining. My iPad Air 2 (http://www.imore.com/ipad-air-2) went from 40.9 GB to 42.8 GB.</p> <p>It sounds like 500 MB is the average size of return, and while that might not seem like much, it's a fair amount of extra songs, apps, and photos — especially on a 16GB iPad. And when it comes to storage, more is absolutely more.</p> <p>Whatever Apple did to clean up, clean out, compress, and/or otherwise make svelter the iPad version of iOS 8, it'll no doubt be appreciated by many, especially those already tight on space.</p> <p>If you've got an iPad, don't wait. Update and get your storage boosted now!</p> <p>(If you're so tight on space that you can't download iOS 8.1.1 over-the-air via Software Update, you can update via iTunes (http://www.imore.com/how-to-install-ios-8-iphone-ipad-itunes) on a Mac or Windows PC instead.)</p> </div></div></div><div id="comment-wrapper-nid-28429"></div><img width='1' height='1' src='http://tipb.com.feedsportal.com/c/33998/f/616881/s/40994f8c/sc/15/mf.gif' border='0'/><br clear='all'/>
