I have about 42GB of photos I'd like to import to a 64GB ipad. If I check in Settings, i see there are about 50 GB free, so it should work. Problem is, I seem to have hit a 16GB cap for photos. Weird. I researched online, including Apple's official support forums, and, indeed, there seems to be a cap for photos. Something to do with loading all thumbnails into memory.
Anyway, is there a way to overcome this limitation? The threads I found dealing with the issue were from 2010/2011 so I hooe there's been changes regading this issue.
Fwiw, i upgraded to iOS 5.1.
