When you "delete" pictures they go to a Deleted album on the device. Unless you empty that album, they are not deleted until 30 days have past since the deletion.

You may have received a text, or an email in the time space. I find that iTunes is inaccurate.



Have you backed up your iTunes Library this week? If not, you are risking losing your music and playlists....

I emptied all my music I had on my iPad ( I already have on iPod) but now it still says 5.79 GB, with no music on there it's usually 6 or 7 GB. I'm wondering If Spotify is taking up a lot of space.

Apps do use space.
