what is "available local storage"?

When attempting to upgrade existing apps, this message occurs: "there is not enough available local storage to download these items....." I have added more iCloud space and also deleted some other apps.

  • "Available Local Storage" is how much of your device's internal storage capacity is free. For example, if you have a 32 GB iPhone that is half-full, you have approximately 16 GB Available Local Storage. (I say approximately because the OS and Firmware take up space, so you actually have less than the written amount for the hard drive available for your use even on a brand-new device)
