I had a problem with my iPad Mini. A Magazine that I read using Bookshelf became corrupt during an update. I couldn't fix it or delete it, so I decided on brute force. I did a Backup / Restore, and the Magazine is fixed now (YEA!). What surprised me though is that I have 10GB more free space than I did before the Backup / Restore. All of my apps, photos and music are back in place, so what caused extra free space? Is there app data missing that I don't know about yet? Or is this just a case of garbage collection?
