Thank you for the question. Normally this is the space that is taken up by Safari cache. You can clear the Safari cache and cookies by going to Settings -> Safari -> Clear Cookies, History and Cache. Please let me know if you have any questions and I will be happy to assist further. Thanks again!

Please also make sure to re-start the phone after checking the space again as it may still incorrectly report the space until it is restarted. Thanks again!
