Hi there NathanNeedsHelpNow,



We understand you're looking for help with storage space on your iPad, and we'll be happy to assist.



Other storage contains the following data - "Non-removable mobile assets, like Siri voices, fonts, dictionaries, non-removable logs and caches, Spotlight index, and system data, such as Keychain and CloudKit Database. Cached files can't be deleted by the system." You can read more about this here:
