Hey guys i have a 64gb 6plus and the usage is saying i used up almost all my gigabyte which cant be true because i myself estimated the usages and checked that i used up only 40 gigabyte which includes my cydia gigabyte usage apps.

Question how to check clearly which apps have how many gigabyte in them? Does it have anything to do with ifile? I did clear my trash out

Please dont recommend the cydia storage informer, that isnt helping at all

The actual storage you'll be getting on a 64GB is about 56GB in total, because 1GB = 1024MB, not 1000, plus the iOS system itself occupies a few gigs of space. Use iCleaner from repo and clean your system, that usually cleans up a few gigs.

Go to settings, general, usage, manage storage, that will show you what's using what.

Of course it doesn't. Check the answer below: It should add up to around 56. Add in files you may have manually placed in a directory with iFunBox/iFile (such as music, videos, emulator roms, etc), and the "Other" storage (which are Cydia files I believe) and you should get pretty close to the 56 mark.
