Why does my iPad mini show "out of storage" when it also shows over 50gb?

My iPad mini keeps telling me I am out of storage, but when I bring up MANAGE STORAGE, it shows over 50 gigabytes? What's the deal?

  • It may be talking about icloud storage, which is the cloud service used to store your data and pictures on a service if your phone breaks or you get a new one, to Carry it over to the new device. It will automatically load all your data to it if you are signed into an Apple ID, but when it gets full, like what happened to you, then it will send an alert saying that you are out of storage.
