iPhone ‘out of storage’ might by LYING to you, shocked experts reveal

A BUG with Apple’s new iOS 15 software is said to be showing users a false “Storage is Almost Full” message.

The same issue is said to be occurring with iPadOS 15 as confused users have taken to social media to complain.

The false alert is said to appear in the Settings menu.

One Apple user tweeted: “iPhone storage almost full – I got like 25 gigs left…”

Another tweeted @AppleSupport and said: “I have lots of free space on my iPhone but newly installed #iOS15 keeps stating “Storage almost full” message and won’t open in settings or go away.”

Apple Support responded to that user by saying: “Thanks for reaching out! We’re here to help.

“First, tap on the alert in Settings and see if it goes away. Next, you are going to want to restart the device. If you’re still having issues, send us a DM.”

It’s unclear whether clicking on the false alert and restarting your iPhone removes the false message for all users.

Another person tweeted Apple Support and said: “Updated to iOS 15 and have the ‘iPhone storage almost full’ message which I cannot clear. When I tap the notification nothing happens.”

To which Apple replied: “Thanks for reaching out to us! We want to help. Please meet us in DM and we’ll look into this with you.”

Apple hasn’t said what is causing the bug but the good news is it won’t actually be affecting your storage size.

It seems that the tech giant is trying to fix the issue as quickly and discretely as possible.

It’s unclear whether this will involve releasing an iOS 15.0.1 update even thought iOS 15 was only released on Monday.

Some reports suggest that this issue was spotted in the beta version of iOS 15.
