Several iPhone owners are facing storage issues after installing the iOS 15 update on their devices. Their iPhones keep throwing an  “iPhone Storage Almost Full” error despite having plenty of storage space.

iPad owners are also reporting a similar error after installing the iPadOS 15 update.

The error message shows up inside the Settings app, and more frustratingly, it cannot be dismissed. Removing junk apps and freeing up more storage on the affected iPhone/iPad does not seem to help things either. A restart

There’s not much you can do if you are getting this storage error on your iPhone. Apple will likely fix this in the next bug-fixing iOS 15 release. If you cannot wait until then, you can try installing the iOS 15.1 or iPadOS 15.1 beta to see if that fixes the issue or not.
